Lenovo Vibe P1 image leaked; phone carries 5000+mAh battery inside all-metal frame?

Lenovo Vibe P1 image leaked; phone carries 5000+mAh battery inside all-metal frame?
We first mentioned the Lenovo Vibe P1 to you back in February, when pictures and specs leaked for four Lenovo devices. Earlier this month, China's TENAA certified the handset, and today a rather limited image of the model was discovered. This handset's claim to fame is the massive 5000+mAh battery inside, the largest cell ever placed inside a Lenovo smartphone.

The phone is equipped with a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5-inch display, carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 294ppi. Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 410 chipset, featuring a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU. 2GB of DDR3 RAM is inside, along with 16GB of expandable internal storage. There is an 8MP rear-facing camera with a front-facing 5MP shooter to shoot selfies and handle video chats.

The phone will support 4G connectivity and does have dual SIM capabilities. Available in Black and White, the Lenovo Vibe P1 is 9.35mm thick and weighs 148 grams. Thanks to the leaked image of the model, we can see what looks like a lock on the left side of the unit, with a volume rocker and power button on the right. We should also mention that the device has an all-metal build.

The latest word is that the phone will be stuffed with a 5000+mAh battery. When it went through TENAA, the listing showed a 4000mAh cell, although as we've discovered lately, TENAA can make a mistake (OnePlus 2 was certified with a QHD display). Lenovo says that the phone will offer a very long standby time. We should know definitively about the battery on August 15th when the model is expected to be unveiled.

Thanks for the tip!

Because believe it or not, the majority of the market is midrange and low ends, not everyone can afford, or want to buy a high end phone.

For your parents? I mean really how hard is it to charge a phone

Charging a phone requires two steps: 1. Remembering to charge your phone 2. Connecting it (or placing it on the Qi charger, as an ultra-lazy person like me does). I bet that you were talking about step 2. But for some people step 1 is the hard one. For some reason that I fail to understand some people can't remember to connect their phone half of the times when going to bed (or any other time whatsoever). I bet that like me, you wouldn't understand it either. But it is a reality. Not a problem with my parents, as my mom is an obsesive-compulsive person who never forgets anything. She compensates for my dad. My son is like my dad, however. :-( A huge battery means that forgetting to charge it every other night will have no consequences.

Having a portable battery pack to recharge your phone as needed also helps. :) I have an Anker 16,000 mAH battery that can charge my phone fully up to 8 times, so remembering to charge the battery pack isn't a problem either(but i never forget anyways, I just use it to prevent my phone's battery from going through a full cycle).

My secondary phone is Lenovo A5000 with 4,000 mAh battery, and I get great SoT. Will definitely get the Vibe P1 when it comes out.

What's with this back design with little metal strip design thing? It's good to see on motorola phones but suddenly got boring to me when I saw it with lenovo. I think lenovo should just continue their vibe shot back design, looks awesome and unique and one of the reason why I bought it.

All these phones claiming monster battery's are a joke. Mate 7, Vibe Pro, Droid Turbo, I have tried them all. The S6 Active is the only one that has given me more than 6 SOT.

If I want to charge my phone every night, I can get around 10 hours of screen on time on my oneplus. I doubt the new model will match that.
