Lenovo Vibe P1 with its massive 5000mAh battery now available for pre-orders; phone ships next month
Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the Lenovo Vibe P1. This is the handset that is stuffed with a massive 5000mAh battery inside. Made using a magnesium alloy, the handset can be reserved for $359.99. The device will start shipping some time next month. Obviously, a 5000mAh juicer brings with it a promise of long battery life. And since the 5.5-inch LCD screen has a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution, you should be able to go quite a while between charges.
The Lenovo Vibe P1 is equipped with the Snapdragon 615 CPU under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. Additional memory can be obtained via the use of the handset's 128GB capacity microSD slot. The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 13MP/5MP, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed with Vibe 2.68 UI running on top.
The handset measures 9.9mm thick. Thanks to the massive 5000mAh battery, the phone weighs 189g. Speaking about the battery, it will charge to 67% in one hour, and 100% in two hours. There also is a fingerprint scanner on board that unlocks the phone in half a second. The Vibe P1 supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and USB connectivity.
