Chinese consumer electronics major Lenovo has unveiled a budget smartphone dubbed as the Vibe C2 in Russia.

The new Lenovo device was previously rumoured to debut as the Vibe C2 in China and later get released as the Moto E (3rd gen) in global regions. With the official announcement, Lenovo has finally put all rumours to rest.

The Vibe C2 sports a 5.0-inch HD IPS screen and comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS powered by MediaTek quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt storage, 8MP camera with LED flash on the back, a 5MP snapper on the front and a 2,750mAh battery, which can keep the phone running for close to 10 days under standby mode.

Lenovo's Vibe C2 will be made available in black and white options, but the price and availability details for the Russian market is still under wraps. There is also no official word from the company on whether it has any plans of launching Vibe C2 in other global markets or not. 

We believe Lenovo is mostly likely to target price sensitive markets such as India, China and other emerging markets to launch Vibe C2 later this year.

Stay tuned for more updates.
