After launching in the Chinese market last year, Lenovo unveiled the Vibe Z at CES for international markets earlier this year. Today, the company has launched the device in India with a price tag of Rs 35,999. The Vibe Z will be available across the country later this month.

In terms of specifications, the Vibe Z competes in the top-tier section with a 5.5-inch 1080p display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and is powered by Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. Other features include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (not expandable), FM Radio and a 3,000mAh battery.

On the photography front, the device offers a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and f1.8 aperture lens supplemented with a 5-megapixel front camera. Connectivity options include 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Priced at Rs 35,999, the Vibe Z will be up against the likes of the Gionee Elife E7, the Sony Xperia Z1 and the Samsung Galaxy S4. The Elife E7 is lighter on the pockets and at Rs 29,400 you get the same 5.5-inch 1080p display and power. But to make it a tempting choice, Gionee is offering 3GB of RAM, better cameras (16-megapixel/8-megapixel) and 32GB of internal storage. Where it lags behind is the battery as it only features a 2,500mAh battery.

The Galaxy S4 too is a bit cheaper, priced at Rs 32,500 and for that you an octa-core Exynos 5 SoC, expandable memory via a microSD card. But on the flip-side you get a smaller 5-inch 1080p display and a smaller battery (2,600mAh).

The Xperia Z1, on the other hand, is a bit more expensive at Rs 40,700, but for the extra buck, it offers a much higher resolution 20.7-megapixel rear camera, expandable memory via a microSD card slot and protection against water and dust. It only has a 5-inch 1080p display though.
