Lenovo had so much fun and lots of devices to showcase at IFA Berlin 2016 judging from a video uploaded on their twitter page. While the highlight of their launch was the Yoga Book, the company launched a bunch of new phones too albeit with little or no fanfare. Some of the phones launched include the Lenovo K6, Lenovo K6 Power, and Lenovo K6 Note. You should check them out if you haven’t. Two other phones the company launched are the (Lenovo Vibe) P2 and Lenovo A Plus.
First spotted a month ago at a trade event in China, the Vibe P2 is the successor to last year’s Vibe P1 which launched with a large 5000mAh battery. The Lenovo Vibe P2 ups the battery game with an additional 100mAh (5100mAh). There’s a 5.5” full HD display, Android 6.0, 3GB of RAM, 32GB ROM, Snapdragon 625 SoC, a 13MP rear camera supplied by Sony, and a 5MP camera up front for selfies.
If you are a lover of fingerprint scanners placed in front, Lenovo has got you covered with the P2 but it doesn’t seem like it will double as a home button like you have it on the Vibe P1, since it now uses on-screen buttons.
Lenovo says the Vibe P2 has fast charging but we can’t confirm if it is Quick Charge 2.0 or Quick Charge 3.0 until we get our hands on it. There is also going to be a 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM version released in China which may be called Vibe P2 Turbo, since the Vibe P1 Turbo is the P1 with more RAM. Price details have also not been released yet.
Lenovo A Plus
Want a cheap 4G LTE phone with VoLTE support? Look no further, The Lenovo A Plus has you covered, though you will have to sacrifice a couple of things such as the screen which is a 4.5” FWVGA (480 x 854) display, the front camera which is a measly 2MP, and the 2000mAh battery. Other specs are a 1.3GHz MT6580 chip, a 5MP rear camera, 8GB of storage, and SD card slot. The Lenovo A Plus is priced at €69 ($77/514 Yuan) for the single SIM variant and €79 ($88/588 Yuan) if you want an extra SIM slot.
