Lenovo Vibe P1 With 5000mAh Battery Listed by Online Retailer

Craving for a high-end smartphone with great battery life? Lenovo may have something for you. The Lenovo Vibe P1 has been listed on a third-party Chinese online retailer, hinting at an imminent launch. The phone, which could possibly launch at the IFA trade show event next month, has a mammoth 5000mAh battery.

The same device was reportedly recently spotted on Chinese certification website Tenaa, but there it revealed a difference set of specifications. As per the online retailer, the Lenovo Vibe P1 sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixel) display resolution. It is powered by the Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz coupled with the Adreno 405 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. The device comes with 16GB internal storage which can be expanded using a microSD card should you need more storage.

The listing further reveals that the Vibe P1 has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel snapper placed upfront. On the connectivity front, the dual-SIM capable Vibe P1 supports 4G LTE. The highlight of the Android 5.1-based Vibe P1, however, is its 5,000mAh battery. It seems to support 24-watt charging capability, which could charge the device a bit faster.

The pricing of the device, however, could be a downer to many. lists the device at the equivalent of Rs. 20,500, which is too much for a device that largely has identical features as theXiaomi’s Mi 4i (priced at Rs. 12,999) and Lenovo’s K3 Note (priced at Rs. 9,999), except for the larger battery.

We will get a confirmation in less than two weeks as the phone is expected to be launched at the IFA trade show in Berlin, which kicks of on September 4.
