LEN­OVO has added two new en­tries to its Vibe range, the X3 and K4 Note, and un­veiled its first VR ( vir­tual re­al­ity) head­set, the AntVR.

Both smart­phones are the first mod­els to fea­ture TheaterMax, the com­pany’s tech­nol­ogy for con­vert­ing reg­u­lar video into VR ( vir­tual re­al­ity) con­tent for view­ing with the head­set.

“More than 50% of dig­i­tal con­tent is con­sumed on mo­bile devices to­day, and smart­phones con­tinue to be users’ pri­mary per­sonal en­ter­tain­ment de­vice,” says Ly­dia Foo, Len­ovo Malaysia smart­phone coun­try lead.

The AntVR head­set is also com­pat­i­ble with other An­droid smart­phones.

The Vibe X3, Len­ovo’s new flag­ship smart­phone, has a 21- megapixel rear cam­era which is ca­pa­ble of shoot­ing 4K videos with phase- de­tect aut­o­fo­cus.

It also has a 5.5in screen and 32GB of stor­age, and is pow­ered by a 1.8GHz Qual­comm Snap­dragon 808 hex­a­core pro­ces­sor. The front- fac­ing cam­era is 8 megapix­els.

The K4 Note is a mid- range model with a 5.5in full HD screen, 13- megapixel rear cam­era and 5- megapixel front cam­era.

It runs on a 1.3GHz Me­di­aTek octa- core pro­ces­sor and has 16GB of in­ter­nal stor­age.

Both phones sup­port Dolby At­mos which min­imises noise and voice dis­tor­tion when play­ing voice clips and songs.

The X3, only avail­able in Pearl White, goes for RM1,899 while the K4 Note re­tails for RM999 and is avail­able in Matte White and Matte Black. The AntVR head­set is priced at
