IFA 2014 has brought a lot of goodies and among them is the sleek and stylish Lenovo Vibe X2, touted as the ‘World’s first layered smartphone’. The handset also boasts of an octa-core chip by Mediatek, which is a first too. According to Lenovo, the octa-core processor helps to increase the battery life.

Lenovo Vibe X2 has a unique three-layered design with each layer of a different shade or color. Accessories in the form of extra battery and speaker dock can be just clicked-on at the back of the phone, forming additional layers or ’Xtensions’.  The Vibe X2 battery is only 5.1mm thick but can enhance the battery life by up to 75%. It also protects the phone. The Vibe X2 JBL audio speaker provides improved audio and has a kickstand to prop up the phone on a table.

The 5MP front facing camera of the Lenovo Vibe X2 allows you to take a selfie picture even with the blink of your eyes, a wave of your hand or other gestures.
