Lenovo unveils the VIBE P1, P1m and S1 smartphones at IFA 2015
Lenovo has taken the wraps off quite a few new products today. We’ve already told you about the company’s new YOGA Tablet 3 and Tablet 3 Pro, as well as the PHAB and PHAB Plus smartphones. As if those weren’t enough, Lenovo has just officially announced three new smartphones, the VIBE P1, VIBE P1m and VIBE S1.
For starters, the Lenovo VIBE P1 (pictured above) features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD Full HD display, an octa-core 64-bit 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and microSD expansion up to 128GB. It also boasts a 13MP rear-facing camera with phase-detection auto-focus, a 5MP front-facing camera, a giant non-removable 5000mAh battery and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The VIBE P1 also sports an aluminum frame, Gorilla Glass 3 on the front, and supports dual Nano SIM cards.
The VIBE P1 will be available in Platinum and Graphite Grey color options in early October for just $279.
Next up is the VIBE P1m, which sports a 5.0-inch IPS LCD Full HD display, a 1.0GHz quad-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6735P processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion up to 32GB. It has an 8MP main shooter, a 5MP front shooter, a big non-removable 4000mAh battery and also runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. This one is made of plastic, though it sports a splash-proof nano coating to keep the phone dry. Unlike it’s P1 counterpart, the VIBE P1m supports dual Micro SIM cards.
The Lenovo VIBE P1m will be available in Onyx Black and Pearl White color options in mid-September for only $159.
Last but not least is the Lenovo VIBE S1, which sports a 5.0-inch Full HD IPS LCD display, a 1.7GHz octa-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and microSD expansion up to 128GB. There’s also a 13MP rear camera with phase-detection auto-focus, an 8MP main front-facing shooter, and you guessed it, a 2MP secondary front camera. It also has an aluminum frame and a 2500mAh non-removable battery. Like the P1, this device supports dual Nano SIM cards.
The Lenovo VIBE S1 will be available in Pearl White and Midnight Blue color options in November for $299. It should be noted that none of these devices are slated for release in North America, but will still be sold in other regions where Lenovo phones are sold.
So, what are your thoughts? Would you rather spend your money on the more inexpensive VIBE P1 or P1m, or are you interested in the two front-facing cameras on the S1?
