lenovo vibe p1 m

Sure every Chinese phone maker under the sun is making a bigger battery phone, but Lenovo were one of the first and the originator is back with 2 new phones.

You would think that owning Motorola and being a major share holder in ZUK, we would see less of Lenovo outside of China, but the PC company come phone maker is representing at IFA.

To appeal to the heavy users, Lenovo have announced the Lenovo Vibe P1 and Lenovo Vibe P1m. Both smartphones feature large batteries, but in different size packages and tweaked hardware to match.

The Lenovo Vibe P1 features a 5000mAh battery with fast charging tech named “Rocket Charge” which can give the phone 2.8 hours of talk time in just 5 minutes of charing. The P1 also gets a larger 5.5-inch FHD display and Snapdragon 615.

If 5.5-inch is too much then the Lenovo Vibe P1m has a 5-inch HD display, Mediatek processor and 4000mAh battery and fast charge. Interestingly the fast charge on the P1m is called Quick charge and offers 2.54 hours of talk time after a 15 minute charge.

There are differences in camera hardware too with the P1 boastings a 13 mega-pixel camera, while the P1 has a 8 mega-pixel camera. Both phones get a 5 mega-pixel selfie camera and 16GB memory.

Lenovo aim to launch both large battery phones in North America, with the P1 landing in October for $279 and the P1m in September for $159.

      Not really since there’s not stopping you getting it from ebay, ali or other good Chinese online stores.

      It’s a pity for the average American who will not even have an idea about this phone but yeah …

        Oh of course. But without an official release there is a good chance they won’t have 4G LTE support in the US.

      Yeah it really sucks having the SD615 with all its heating issues. Anyone knows if the 2nd Gen performs better or produces less heat?
