(Pocket-lint) - The Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro smartphone appears to have leaked in photos showing off the metallic edged device ahead of Mobile World Congress 2015.

The Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro is rumoured to make an appearance at MWC 2015 which starts 2 March. Now GizmodoChina has managed to attain leaked images that appear to show a finished handset from Lenovo.

From the photos it's clear the device is sticking to the Vibe form factor with a harsh edge and metallic bumper, much like the iPhone 5S. The speakers sit at the bottom with drilled holes while the power button appears to be on the side.

The Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro was released last year bringing with it 64-bit octa-core MediaTek processors, so there's plenty to live up to. 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. There should also be a 3,400mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop preinstalled.
