Lenovo Vibe X3 is going to be the company’s upcoming smartphone and according to the latest benchmarking tests, it is going to be running a six-core processor, which at this time, is only present in Snapdragon 808. Qualcomm has not exactly brought anything interesting with its current generation SoCs, but on the other hand MediaTek has aggressively progressed to the top of the food chain with chipsets that not only show tremendous improvement in performance, but since they are processed on the 28nm node, their costs are automatically reduced.
It can be said that Lenovo would have benefited greatly from choosing Helio X20, but Snapdragon 808 is not a bad option either. Coming to the other specifications, Lenovo Vibe X3 is going to have 3GB of RAM, and will be running Android 5.1.1 as soon as it is released. If it does get released later in the year, then we are expecting the smartphone to get an update to Android Marshmallow soon.
As far as the benchmarks are being talked about, Snapdragon 808 running in Lenovo Vibe X3 might have six cores, but it shows that they are running at a frequency 1.44GHz. However, the mentioned processing speed is of Cortex-A53, and we are pretty sure that Cortex-A57 is also going to be present running at a speed of 1.82GHz. The price of Lenovo Vibe X3 has not been mentioned by the source, but knowing that it is running a Snapdragon 808 chipset, it will most certainly not be coming cheap.
