Lenovo might not be one of the largest smartphone manufacturers on a global scale, but this China-based company is quite successful in India. Lenovo has rolled out a number of smartphones in India thus far, and their sales are quite good. The company is trying to keep things fresh, and has decided to release yet another smartphone in India, a device that has been introduced in China back in February, the Vibe P1 Turbo.
The company has unveiled this smartphone in India earlier today, and the device will be available in the country through offline stores, at least according to Mahesh Telecom. This smartphone features a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 on top of it. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor running at 1.5GHz, along with the Adreno 405 GPU for graphics. The 13-megapixel snapper (PDAF, f/2.2 aperture) can be found on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel shooter is placed up front. The 5,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it will provide more than enough juice to get you through the day. This phone also sports two SIM card slots (2 x Nano SIM), and Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed with Lenovo’s Vibe UI on top of it. The Vibe P1 Turbo also packs in 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. The device measures 152.9 x 75.6 x 9.9mm, while it weighs 189 grams.
The Lenovo Vibe P1 Turbo is made out of metal, and as you can see it sports a physical home key below the display, and the fingerprint scanner is built into it. That key is flanked by two capacitive buttons, overview (multitasking) and back. On top of all this, the Vibe P1 Turbo offers fast charging (24W), and does offer 4G LTE connectivity. The phone comes in Graphite Gray, Gold and Silver color variants, and it is priced at Rs. 17,999 ($272) in India. The source indicates that the phone is already available for purchase in India, just in case you’re interested.
