Last week there were rumors all over the place that suggested that Lenovo could be thinking about doing away with its Vibe brand. Therefore Lenovo would be turning to Motorola to handle all their smartphone needs. Since Lenovo owns Motorola, the reports made some sense.
However these rumors turned out to be false. According to a new report, Lenovo has no plans to do away with the Vibe brand. This is according to Gadget 360 who reports that a Lenovo spokesperson has refuted the earlier report, saying, “Vibe remains an important brand in the Lenovo mobile family. We plan to continue to expand and grow the franchise in select markets around the world.”
So you shouldn’t believe everything you hear. So now we know better and it looks like the Vibe brand is here to stay. The company has recently released their latest Vibe handset in the form of the Vibe X3, but it looks like the phone will only be available in China, at least for now and there’s no word on a US launch at this time. So the Vibe brand is alive and well for the moment. That will be good news to everyone who loves the brand.
