This isn’t the first time Lenovo is launching a phone with battery life put into focus. The P780 and S860, both had a 4000 mAh battery packed in, and now, the new Lenovo P70 comes with a similar battery as the device just gets launched in China. A mid-range device, the P70 is claimed to have about 34 days of standby time, thanks to the large battery included in it.
The P70 comes with a 5-inch IPS touchscreen with the HD resolution display, and it is powered by Mediatek MT6752 64-bit chipset (which is an octa-core CPU, clocking speed 1.7 GHz), 700 MHz MaliT760-MP2 GPU and 2GB of RAM, while there is 16GB internal storage and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. The MT6752 is a True octa-core chipset for the 4G LTE support.
The Lenovo P70 boasts a 13-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The rear camera has a LED flash, and it can record 1080p videos. This is a Dual SIM smartphone, supporting 4G LTE Cat.4, which is for 150Mbps down and 50Mbps upload. The smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
The standby time mentioned is for 2G networks, and still, getting 34 days of standby on a single charge is quite remarkable, only if we can confirm what the company claims. Going by the specs, the phone hasn’t got any compromise in the power, and is intended for some good heavy usage, but the inclusion of 4000 mAh battery is a great addition. The P70 is launched at the price of CNY 1,399, which is around US $225.
As of now, it is being sold only in China, and we’ll get to know about the availability and pricing in the other markets, very soon.
