lenovo-vibe-p1-turbo-launched

A piece of Lenovo hardware clearly befitting the term “Turbo” just passed through Geekbench, but with Vibe P1 Turbo having launched in India earlier this year, this smartphone’s benchmarks suggests that it’s the rumored Lenovo Vibe P2.

Lenovo’s earlier iteration on its Vibe P1 might have left you wondering what the company defines as “turbo,” considering that the Vibe P1 “Turbo” is nearly identical to the specs of the base Vibe P1, which launched last fall. Now it appears Lenovo is truly turbo-charging the Vibe P family as the company finalizes what we’re calling the Vibe P2 for the time being. Lenovo hasn’t given any official indication that the smartphone exists, so that placeholder is the best we’ve got for now.

The Lenovo Vibe P2, its outline illuminated by Geekbench benchmarks, will come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow stock. It’ll crunch numbers using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 clocked at 2.02 GH and backed by 4GB of RAM. That’s a full step up from the Snapdragon 615 used by both the Vibe P1 and Vibe P1 Turbo.

If this is indeed the successor to the Vibe P1, you can expect it to be powered by a hearty battery. The Vibe P1 and P1 Turbo both boasted a 5,000 mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 2.0. The 5.5-inch, full HD Vibe P1 and its turbo version also included a 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP selfie cam, and fingerprint sensor. The RAM is mark that distinguishes these twins, with the Turbo offering a gig more than the base model’s 2GB.
