Lenovo, a brand that is more widely known for the excellent Thinkpad and Ideapad series of notebooks has started off 2014 by expanding on their smartphone portfolio, or as they would like to call it, the PC+ segment, with the announcement and launch of the Lenovo Vibe X.

The Vibe X is a remarkably thin 5.0-inch smartphone, which measures in at about 6.9mm in thickness. Inside, it is powered by a quad-core Mediatek MTK6589 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of memory and 16GB of storage space, running Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

Not only is the Vibe X thin, it is also light, with the phone itself weighing in at a paltry 120g. Some of the features that sets the Vibe X apart from other phones include its Full HD 20/20 IPS display which provides users with an almost 180 degree angle that is great for watching videos with others.

The Vibe X also packs two powerful cameras in the form of the 13MP rear-facing camera, as well as a 5MP front-facing camera that features an 84 degree lens that allows users to capture high-quality selfies with their friends. The Vibe X’s UI is also similar to that of the new Yoga Tablet as in that the home screen serves as the app drawer as well. Another feature the Vibe X has is the Shake to Lock feature, which allows users to lock the phone with a simple shake.

The Lenovo Vibe X is already available in stores at a recommended retail price of RM1,299
