Lenovo Vibe P1 with 5000 mAh juicer leaks: stellar battery life and finger scanner in metal chassis

Lenovo Vibe P1 with 5000 mAh juicer leaks: stellar battery life and finger scanner in metal chassis
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.

Man, how thick is this thing!? It looks like a tank. Guess that might be the compromise to fit a 5000 mAH battery.

Probably Something Like 9.?mm Cause The Lenovo P70 Has A 4000mAh And Its 8.9mm.

It Could Be 8.?mm Tho, After All Sony Put A 3100mAh In The 7.3mm Z3.

The 615 Gets The Job Done And With That Battery This Thing Should Top All Battery Benchmarks If Its Optimized Good That Is. For $300 Not Bad At All.

What about the SD 615 overheating? I'm planning to buy this phone for its battery life, just worried about thermal management.

Never heard Any Thing About The 615 Overheating And Tons Of Phones Have It As Their Soc.

Never heard of S615 overheating??? Just google it. Almost every single phone with this CPU heats up and has terrible battery life. S615 is the midrange S810 when it comes to overheating. In fact its heating problems are even worse than S810. Why do you think both Moto Play and this phone have huge batteries? They both have S615...

Worse Than The 810 That's Not True. I Googled It And Found No Sold Proof.

S410 is the only CPU from Qualcomm that's OK in 2015. But it's for real low end phones. Actually, even S615 has a miserable GPU that can't be classified in midrange. Come on, almost every single phone with S615 heats up badly. You can look up on forums, so many people complaining about the heating and pathetic battery life which is a result. Both S615 and S810 have octa core big.LITTLE architecture, which is obviously totally flawed. That's why Qualcomm is returning to quad core design with S820, which will be a huge upgrade over S810 in every way.

SD615 and SD810 both feels like a frying pan... i have used both of them for a while... although SD410 is good but it's made for budget smartphones.

Yeah that really sucks. The rest of the specs on the Vibe P1 are great for the price... and as you say most phones for 2014-2015 suffered from heating issues. Wish they went with Helio or Atom instead.

That's more like it. It could use a little more "style" to make it unique. And I'd like to see after market carbon fiber/plastic/rubber replaceable caps for the top as well as bottom, that stand 0.5mm proud on all sides of the phone to protect it and eliminate the need for a case. If they wear or get broken they can be replaced. Nice.

I remember the early leaks showing two models; Vibe P1 and P1 Pro. Looks like we only get the P1. What about the Vibe X3?

Wow, it's a Galaxy S2 mixed with an HTC One M7. It actually looks quite nice - I don't mind the thickness of the device. Sorry to be a troll, but shouldn't the title read "Images of Lenovo Vibe P1 surface, Looking like an HTC One M7"? Funny how tech journalists only care if something looks like an Apple device. Then something like this comes out, and nobody seems to care... Have to admit, it irks me quite a bit. >:/

So how long until they break my heart and say I can't use on AT&T in the USA? Otherwise I will think seriously about buying this.

5000 mah is BS. I had the Mate 7. Went back to the Note 4. Because battery in the Mate 7 was supposed to be 4100 mah. It was terrible in battery. S6 active battery nothing comes close.

Glad Lenovo chose Motorola to solely design their phones. Their designs have been real garbage as of late.

They should have used 64 bit MediaTek Octa core just like in K3 Note, instead of SD615, imho

looks like 1/4 of a inch. I know we use MM but damn literally looks like a quarter inch to me. Im down though some of my phones have cases that make them thicker.
