Designer Ashraf Amer has just rendered a new device part of the Lenovo Vibe family, the Lenovo Vibe K6, that’s pictured below, looking swell I might add. The product runs Android 7.0 Nougat and adheres to the modern design traits.
Last I saw the Lenovo Vibe and Lenovo K6 devices were rather ugly and massive, so this is a welcome change. We’re dealing here with a 5.5 inch phablet with very narrow bezels and a back side that finally doesn’t look generic, like the one of an UMi Touch or Meizu M3 Note, as the Lenovo K6 did. We also get the brand new Gorilla Glass 5 protection and Android Nougat as the OS.
There’s 4 GB of RAM, so this is a genuine flagship, plus 64 GB of storage and a 24 megapixel back camera, although that resolution is rather atypical and it’s probably actually 23 MP. The front cam is potent as well, at 13 MP and there’s an USB Type C port at the bottom, reversible too. Powering up the whole joint is an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and a beefy 4600 mAh battery.
The phone is waterproof, reasonably slim and has fast charging. It comes with a metal shell and dual speakers at the back, as the K6 did. It’s strange that the fingerprint scanner has moved from the back to the front, within the Home button, but we take what we can get here.
