Lenovo Vibe P1 is a ZUK Z1 rival from the same parent company

We’ve seen this before, specifically in the case of the OnePlus One (which was very similar in design and specifications to the OPPO Find 7). The new Vibe P1 from Lenovo, which incidentally also happens to be the parent company for ZUK, bears uncanny resemblance to the ZUK Z1.

Nonetheless, let’s shift the focus to the Vibe P1 here, for the phone does have some decent specs. The phone boasts a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p full HD display, with a camera department consisting of a 13 mega-pixel main shooter on the rear and a 5 mega-pixel front. It also has a 5000mAh battery which easily is going to be the selling point for the phone.

We first glimpsed the Vibe P1 back in July, thanks to leaks from TENAA. Despite the fact that the phone is scheduled to launch only at IFA 2015, almost every spec detail for the Vibe P1 is already out in the wild.

The 5000mAh cell will take a while to charge, and to reduce that, Lenovo will ship the phone with a 24-watt fast charger. Besides, there’ll be a Snapdragon 615 octa-core CPU powering the phone with 3GB RAM and 16GB on-board expandable storage. Another phone that launched today with the Snapdragon 615 was the US$140 Smartisan U1.

The home button and the fact that the phone comes from none other than Lenovo reminds us of the ZUK Z1, more about which you can read here.
