Today in Russia Lenovo unveiled the Vibe C2 Power, an enhanced version of the Vibe C2. It’s a bit odd that the Chinese company is already launching a slightly better iteration of a model that only got official last month.
Anyway, the new Vibe C2 Power comes with a spacious 3,500 mAh battery, an improvement of 750 mAh compared to the vanilla C2’s 2,750 mAh cell. That’s where the name “Power” comes in. You also get double the RAM amount compared to the Vibe C2, now at 2GB.
Otherwise, though, the new phone’s specs are just as unimpressive as those of the original Vibe C2 have been ever since its announcement. Both models share a 5-inch 720p IPS touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 5 MP selfie cam, 4G LTE, and 16GB of expandable storage. They run Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The increased battery capacity has unsurprisingly resulted in a thicker device this time around. The Vibe C2 Power measures 9.54 mm thickness, while the Vibe C2 is slimmer at 8.6 mm. The other dimensions have remained the same, whereas the weight has gone up to 155.6g (from 139g).
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but the Vibe C2 currently retails in Russia for around RUB 11,000 (that’s approximately $167 or €151 at the current exchange rates). Since it’s got the ever so slightly improved specs, the Power version will probably be a tad more expensive than that.
