Lenovo’s successor to last years P770 is now available to buy in China with larger display, faster CPU and bigger battery. Lenovo P780 details here.
The Lenovo P780 follows the companies new design signature which began with the Intel Powered K900, but manufactured from black plastic rather than a brushed alloy material.
Despite the large 4000mAh battery, the phone is still quite thin at just 9.9mm, in comparison the JiaYu G4 has a 3000mAh battery but is over 10mm thick.
The rest of the phone is either large or more powerful than the previous dual-core P770. The 5-inch 720p display with Gorilla Glass protection is an ‘ultra-sensitive’ model so you can use the phone with gloves, a quad-core MT6589 Mediatek chipset with 1GB RAM gives the P780 a performance boost and the new 8 mega-pixel main camera can capture 1080p video and has built-in apps for burst photos and GIF creation.
Running Android 4.2, with dual SIM cards, the P780’s 4000mAh battery offers a claimed 120hours of battery life!
Sales started yesterday here in China at 1999 Yuan ($320). It’s not clear if Lenovo will launch the P780 internationally themselves, but the phone will more than likely turn up on reseller sites soon.
