Remember last month we said Lenovo was working on a 4000 mAh battery smartphone called as the Lenovo P70t? Looks like the phone will have two different variants — the new one especially targeted at people who would like to have something more powerful.
A new report suggests that the Lenovo P70t from the company’s affordable P series lineup with have a 64-bit MT6752 octa-core variant as well. Apart from the powerful processor, the company has also upgraded the RAM to 2GB instead of the 1GB that we saw earlier. This should make sure that the phone can handle everything that’s thrown at it.
The rest of the specifications remain more or less the same. So, you have a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720p. The camera too remains the same. So, there will be a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front shooter. As for the software, both the models run Android 4.4 KitKat version with the company’s own Vibe UI 2.0 on top. Connectivity options are pretty much standard, so you have 4G / 3G / GSM with dual SIM dual standby support.
Even with the much powerful processor, the selling point of the device remains its massive 4000 mAh battery. And that’s not the impressive part. The company managed to put in this massive battery in an 8.9mm body with a total weight of just over 149 grams. This is what makes Lenovo P70t a breakthrough machine as it proves that an average sized phone can even pack a battery as large as this one. The phone can even reverse charge other devices using an OTG connection! The standby time is a massive 40 days and a 15 minute charge would give you almost 6 hours of talktime!
The 64-bit MT6532 quad-core variant is available for sale in China in the local market for around 1399 Yuan ($225.18). This powerful Lenovo P70t is expected to retail at a much higher price tag, somewhere around 1599 Yuan ($257.18).
