Move over Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD, the Lenovo P770 is now available in China with a 3500mAh cell
When Motorola and Verizon launched the original Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, the phone was seen as a gimmick. After all, why didn't any other manufacturer put a big ass battery in their flagship and call attention to the huge talk time? Motorola knew it had something when the handset beat out the Apple iPhone 4S at Verizon during some months. And to show you how deeply ingrained the RAZR MAXX has become in the DROID legend, consider that even with a whopping 2530mAh battery on the Motorola DROID RAZR HD, there was an outcry for a Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD and its higher 3300mAh battery.

Despite this, most manufacturers have not challenged the DROID RAZR MAXX HD outside of the 3100mAh cell on the Samsung GALAXY Note II. That is, until now. Earlier this month there was a leak that revealed that the Lenovo P770 was going to have a 3500mAh battery on board, surpassing the battery on the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD. Now, Lenovo's own home site shows off the model and it is just as well endowed as the speculation had revealed.

The Lenovo P770 has a 3500mAh battery
The phone is currently available in China with that 3500mAh battery, a 4.5 qHD display, a dual-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6577 processor under the hood, 1GB of RAM on board, 4GB of native storage and a 5MP rear facing camera with LED flash. The handset offers 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. The front facing shooter weighs in at .3MP and Android 4.1-that's right, Jelly Bean-is installed out of the box. The battery provides for 29 hours of talk-time, or up to 644 hours of stand-by time (26 days). The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD has 21 hours of talk time, in comparison. But keep in mind that the DROID RAZR MAXX HD is LTE enabled while the Lenovo P7670 is not.

The price of the Lenovo P770 with an 8GB microSD Card pre-installed is 1,699 CNY ($273 USD) which seems like a great price for such a long lasting device that doesn't ask for a recharge fix every few hours. At this point, we think that seeing this model launch in the U.S. would be a longshot thanks to the lack of 4G connectivity.  But knowing how desperate statesiders are for long battery life, we would bet that the Lenovo P770 would do quite well in the U.S. if the manufacturer would re-wire the innards to account for an LTE signal.
