Lenovo is really in to surprise us this IFA expo, as it seems to be prepping a bunch of phones to announce for next week. Gone are the days when Lenovo released value-for-money plastic handsets, as it is now at the forefront of design when it comes to Chinese manufacturers, starting with the layered metal X2, continuing with the awesome metal Vibe Shot, and now the rumored metal Vibe P1 with a gigantic 5000 mAh battery.
That same Vibe P1 has finally leaked in flesh and blood, along with the specs to match. The magnesium alloy-clad phone will apparently boast a ;arge 5.5" display, 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset, 3 GB RAM, 4G LTE, and, naturally, Android 5.1 Lollipop. The P1 raises the bar when it comes to battery capacity, even for a Lenovo phone, which are known with the longevity of the P-series.
With a humongous 5000 mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner, dual SIM tray, and a separate slot for storage expansion, this lasting metal warrior has now really piqued our interest, especially with the rumored ~$300 price, so stay tuned for our hands-ons from the IFA expo. In the meantime, marvel at actual shots of the Vibe P1 below.
