Lenovo Announces A7000 and Vibe Shot Crossover Smartphone at MWC 2015

Lenevo has announced two new smartphones today at MWC 2015, Barcelona. The most interesting of these two phone is Vibe Shot which looks like cross over between a point-shoot camera and a phone, at least from the rear. Built for people who love to take pictures, vibe is not only light, it holds a 16 MP rear camera with an infrared autofocus, 6 pieces modular lens (reminds me of Lumia 925), but with a FULL FRAME low light sensor. The later is a killer feature for smartphones.
