The Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro is expected to make its debut appearance at MWC 2015 which starts on March 2nd but it obviously can’t wait til then as leaked images have broken free and shows what appears to be a finished handset from Lenovo.

From the photos it looks like the device continues with the original Vibe form factor although the size of the phone is reduced from the six-inches of the Z2 Pro to somewhere around 5.5-inches, for the Vibe Z3 Pro.

The smartphone will feature a solid metal frame and, around the back, it will have a metal strip along the left edge where the camera lives.

The Z3 Pro will allegedly come sporting a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor backed by a hefty 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It should also feature a 5.5-inch QHD display and an improved 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation and laser autofocus (like on the LG G3), as well as three LED flash beams.

There should also be a 3,400mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop being the most likely operating system of choice.

The Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro has only be around for about six months so it seems early for a successor. But with Lenovo making inroads into the smartphone market it makes sense to push out as much as possible.

No doubt, more will surface as we get closer to Mobile World Congress 2015 which kicks off on March 2nd in Barcelona.
