World’s First Layered Smartphone
To create the VIBE X2, Lenovo meticulously designed countless samples of each hue. Utilizing robotic arms and clean rooms, three coats of paint were applied for each tone, totaling nine coatings per phone. To achieve a smooth finish, expert hand craftsmanship was employed as a final touch to further refine the layers.

Lenovo is the first to ship a smartphone with the latest MediaTek MT6595 True Octa-core™ processor with 4G LTE. MediaTek applied its CorePilot technology to the VIBE X2 to unlock the full power of all eight cores.
