The Lenovo Vibe X2 was unveiled earlier in September at IFA and the highlight is its unique multi-layered design. The device comes with additional layers of different colors. These layers add more functionality and can be just snapped-on to the back. One layer massively increases the battery s capacity (up to 75 percent, apparently) and another offers hi-fi JBL audio and a kickstand to prop up the phone on a table. The original price tag on the battery back cover is Rs 1,999, but today you could get it for just Rs 99. After you purchase the Lenovo Vibe X2, the company will send you an email confirmation and will let you purchase the battery cover at the discounted price between November 18 and December 5.

Apart from the discount on the Smart Battery layer, the interest on a six month EMI offering by HDFC and ICICI will also be refunded. Flipkart claims that the cashback will be refunded to the customer’s account after 30 days of purchase. They are also giving a Myntra coupon code that you can use while buying from the official Android app and get a 35 percent off. Interestingly, this offer can only be used on the Lenovo Vibe X2. So after purchasing the device and installing the Myntra app, you will be able to avail the discount using the coupon code only from the Vibe X2. This discount is valid till March 31 2015. Flipkart is also giving away free pre-selected e-books worth Rs 1,200 with the purchase.
As far as hardware specifications are concerned, the Vibe X2 flaunts a 5-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) display and is powered by MediaTek s MT6595m True 8-Core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. It is the first phone to be powered by MediaTek s new 4G-LTE-enabled chip that will sell in the Indian market.
The smartphone also features a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB internal storage (no microSD card slot), and a 2,300mAh battery. On the software front, it runs on Android KitKat wrapped under VIBE UI 2.0 skin. Connectivity-wise it supports 4G LTE for Indian LTE network, dual-SIM support (one micro-SIM, one nano-SIM), Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and GPS.
