Lenovo Vibe Shot joins the smartphone camera war, A7000 official too with Dolby Atmos

Lenovo was supposed to unveil a complete roster of smartphones at the MWC 2015, but it has so far delivered only two handsets, the Vibe Shot and the A7000. The former is the company’s first imaging focused release as it offers a high resolution sensor with great hardware, while the latter device is basically a new addition to its entertainment series.

We’ve already seen the handsets popup a couple of times in the past few months, owing to which, we know quite a bit about them. The Lenovo Vibe Shot is an impressive looking device which features a slim design of 7.3mm and is just 145 grams heavy. The phone flaunts a premium look with a metalic finish.

And while it offers some pretty good hardware, the main highlight is its 16MP rear camera. The snapper is accompanied by hardware OIS, infrared autofocus and a tricolor flash for obtaining better images. And on the software front, Lenovo has thrown in enhancements like Smart and Pro modes for a rich imaging experience.

There’s also a dedicated shutter button on the side to make snapping up images easy. On the down-side, we don’t know whether the phone will support 2K or 4K recording. The Vibe Shot packs an 8MP front shooter, while visuals are delivered through a 5-inch 1080p IPS display.
