Lenovo Vibe P1 gets a Turbo upgrade


Lenovo’s Vibe P1 series went live about three months back, but the brand seems keen on pursuing the lineup in 2016 as well.

Which is why Lenovo have launched the new Vibe P1 Turbo. Not much has changed from the original Vibe P1, and the P1 Turbo is official only in Indonesia as of now.

What has changed though is the rear camera, which is now a 16 mega-pixel sensor, upgraded from the 13 mega-pixel of the original Vibe P1. A 4900mAh battery features on the Vibe P1 Turbo, which should give it a few days of moderate usage.

Other specs of the Vibe P1 Turbo include a Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM (Lenovo’s website, presumably erroneously, also mentions 3GB), 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, 32GB on-board expandable storage, and lastly, a 5 mega-pixel camera.

The Vibe P1 Turbo is priced at an equivalent of $295 in Indonesia. There’s no information on future availability in markets outside of Indonesia so far.

          can xiaomi sell Mediatek SoC powerd devices in Indonesia? or is it like India where they can’t.

            Yes they can. Even the unofficial distributor can sell any gadgets based on Mediatek SoC. BTW, in Indonesia Redmi Note 3 sell about USD 215 (3GB RAM) and USD 168 (2GB RAM).

              Considering our weak currency today? Oh yeah it’s a good bargain. Funny how the unofficial distributors are the ones who gain so much from Redmi 3 and Redmi Note 2 and 3 popularity while the official one is not. Those models are selling like hotcakes!

    So… What’s “turbo” about a sd615?! Something like that would have been epic with a sd650… And with a decent price too :-/

    • Levi Smith

      It’s similar to the Moto G3 normal & Turbo nomenclature – SD410 and SD615 respectively. Sadly for Lenovo, most people know there’s nothing turbo about SD615.

    $295 for a SD615? And they seriously couldn’t come up with a different letter to use than “P”, which has been user Huawei for years? Lenovo is a mess right now.

    • Tajwar
      February 11, 2016

      Agreed and you can get a redmi 3 half the price with a SoC and yeah the alphabet has 26 letters so what’s with the P?

      • Ahsan
        February 15, 2016

        Well , P means Power, S for Sound and A for Affordable. I learn that from Lenovo brochure about 3 years ago.

    • Riccardo Benzoni

      lenovo has also used the P serie label for quite some years for the so called “professional” line (most notably, big battery phones), I remeber a brilliant P780 with mt6589 and 4000mah back in the day, one of the first battery phones ever and one of the best phones of that generation. This one is really some useless piece of hardware tho, and yes they seem confused, maybe they are suffering from this hard competition coming from better organized brands,

    They should keep on hiking their price when Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 pro with snapdragon 616 is there. They should chill, immediately Xiaomi Mi 5 is released I and many out there will just jump in the bus.

      Wrong The Xiaomi Redmi note 3 pro has a Snapdragon 650 which is a hexa-core processor and is even more powerful than the 808.
