Lenovo has been stepping up its game, when it comes to the smartphones the Chinese tech giant has been launching, in terms of specs and features. If reports are true, Lenovo could launch its first ever smartphone with a working stylus.
Apparently, this flagship device (dubbed, "Vibe Max") will be pitted against the mighty Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet. According to Thai website MXPhone, the Vibe Max will be the largest among the new crop of phones, sporting a mammoth 6-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (2K resolution). It will come with a stylus called the AnyPen. Furthermore, the device should feature a fingerprint sensor, NFC capabilities and a 4,000mAh battery.
As of now, it's being reported that Lenovo Vibe Max will be slightly larger than the 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 4. There is no other information provided in terms of what we can expect spec-wise or an estimated release date.
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and LG G3 Stylus both widely available in the market, users may be looking forward to see more devices with stylus capability. If rumours have anything to go by, LG is expected to release the G4 flagship with a stylus, and now it looks like Lenovo may be preparing something really powerful to compete with the two South Korean giants.
So far, this is the first major leak for the new Lenovo Vibe Max, but we can expect additional details to surface in the coming weeks. The Chinese electronics major is looking forward to launch as many as six smartphones at this the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC), starts on March 2.
