Lenovo Vibe P1 features mid-range specs and a massive 5000 mah battery, coming to IFA
Ahead of MWC earlier this year, a number of leaked press renders suggested that Lenovo was getting ready to unveil as many as five handsets. While some of these phones were unveiled at MWC, the Vibe P1 was among the models that never did surface. Until today apparently. The Vibe P1 will finally be officially unveiled at IFA 2015 according to a new report.
Alongside news of its impending arrival, several hands-on live images of the Vibe P1 have now surfaced showing off the magnesium-alloy body, as well as more details about the phone’s specs.
The Vibe P1 is expected to be powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core processor, likely a Snapdragon 615, with 3GB RAM an 16GB storage. Other specs include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 13MP main cam, 5MP front cam, a fingerprint scanner, and a massive 5000 mAh battery. Just as you’d expect from a Lenovo phone, the device will also run a custom skin and a number of 1st party apps on top of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
Given the fairly modest specs, the Vibe P1 sounds like it should be able to easily provide multi-day battery life, though obviously it’s too early to say just how good the battery life will be. In many ways this sounds a lot like the Moto X Play, which is a similarly spec’d device with a large battery (and technically it’s the same company). Obviously the design, some of the specs, and the software will differ, though.
What do you think of the idea of a modestly spec’d phone with a 5000 mAh battery? Would you consider the device if it ever came to your region? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
