Smartphone features slick styling, but is lack of QHD a dealbreaker?

The Lenovo Group, Ltd.'s (HKG: 0992) plan for global smartphone dominance will pick up this month with the availability of the QHD-equipped 6-inch phablet, the Vibe Z2 Pro, which also distinguishes itself with a massive 4,000 mAh battery.  For those looking for a slightly smaller device, Lenovo may soon have a compelling option for you, as well.

A user named PanlingFeng posted images and a description of the upcoming 5-inch Lenovo Vibe X2 to popular microblogging platform Weibo.  The phone's spec is solid.  The phone comes in two variants, one of which is powered by an Intel Corp. (INTC) Atom processor. The Intel variety (the X2-TO) is expected to be the more powerful version, both in the CPU and GPU department.

The most distinctive feature of the phone is its unique "layered" design, which it calls a "color gradient".

The design has a metallic backplate, combined with one color of plastic on the edges of the front face, and a slightly different color on the middle of the rim.

PhoneArena reports that the phone will carry a "very alluring price tag", although an exact number wasn't suggested.  The phone is expected to be officially unveiled at the IFA 2014 (Sept. 5-10th) mobile electronics trade show in Berlin, Germany.
