The Lenovo P2 smartphone with 5100mAh battery will be launched in India on Wednesday, January 11, the company has said. Lenovo P2's price in India is the only open question for the smartphone, which has already made an appearance in other markets.
The upcoming Lenovo P2 smartphone's India launch was teased by the company earlier this month on Twitter. Even though Lenovo's earlier teaser didn't mention any release date for the smartphone, Lenovo has now said that the P2 will be unveiled on Wednesday at 12:30pm IST. The smartphone will be exclusively available via Flipkart in India.
Lenovo P2 was first unveiled by the company earlier last year at IFA 2016 and has been made available by the company in several other regions, including home country China, already. Notably, in China, only the 4GB LPDDR4 RAM variant with 64GB of inbuilt storage has been made available whereas in other regions around the world, Lenovo P2 variants with 3GB or 4GB LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage will be made available.
Even in India, the Lenovo P2 smartphone is expected to be made available with both the above mentioned memory/ storage variants. The highlight feature for the Lenovo P2 is its 5100mAh battery, which comes with fast charging capability.
Lenovo's dual-SIM P2 smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, and has a 5.5-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display. The Lenovo P2 is powered by a 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 MSM8953 processor, and as we said, this is coupled with memory options of 3GB or 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Lenovo P2's rear camera comes with a 13-megapixel resolution with a Sony IMX258 sensor; the smartphone has a 5-megapixel camera at front for taking selfies.
The Lenovo P2 smartphone has a unibody metal design and comes with either 32GB or 64GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). In terms of connectivity options, the Lenovo P2 offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.1, and FM radio. The smartphone is expected to be made available in Champagne Gold and Graphite Grey colour variants.
