The Vibe Z2 features a 64-bit processor, powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor  with 32GB of internal storage. The smartphone includes a 13MP primary camera and an 8MP secondary camera. The device packs a 3000mAh battery, dual-SIM slots and LTE connectivity. However, the 1280×720 resolution of the 5.5-inch display is lower when compared to the present smartphones in the market. The Chinese company has made it a point to include a selfie friendly camera with the increasing competition in the market.

The revamped version of the ThinkPad Helix Ultrabook convertible is thinner and priced lesser than the earlier version. After several complaints from users the laptop-tablet hybrid has been made 15 percent thinner. The device features a 11.6-inch 1080p display and weighs 2.98 pounds along with keyboard when compared to the earlier 3.68 pounds.

Lenovo will be using Intel’s new Core M processors that are fanless and will provide 12-hours of battery runtime with the keyboard for the Helix range. Earlier, the convertibles which used Intel i5/i7 processors provided only 10-hour run time on a single charge. The updated Helix with the keyboard dock will be priced at $999, a significant drop from the earlier price of $1,499. A pro keyboard will be released in January which will further increase the battery runtime.

The Vibe Z2 will be priced at $399 and will be launched in China after its release in Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe and Middle East regions.
