All the way back in February a massive leak revealed a whole bunch of Lenovo smartphones, and timing made everyone think they were headed for an MWC launch. No such thing happened and the company's stand in Barcelona was dominated by the camera-centric Vibe Shot, accompanied by the affordable A7000.
One by one, the other stars of that leak have started surfacing, and after the Vibe S1 from a couple of weeks ago, it's now time for the Vibe P1 to stop by TENAA. As usual the Chinese regulator's listing gives us detailed information, and, as usual, omits two key specs.
Lenovo Vibe P1 at TENAA
Starting off with what we do have, the Lenovo Vibe P1 sports a 5-inch LCD display with 720p resolution. It's powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, contrary to the previously established octa-core unit, and a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU these days means a Snapdragon 410. That's one of the specifics not explicitly stated in the TENAA entry, though.
Other than that, the smartphone comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP front shooter. The handset supports a number of LTE bands and boots Android 5.1.
What is likely going to be the Vibe P1's headline feature is its battery capacity and that's the other area, where TENAA reveals nothing. When we first heard of it, the device was tipped to have a 4,000mAh cell inside, complete with fast charging capability. And while the certification data says nothing on the matter, the 143 x 72 x 9.35mm dimensions and 148g weight of the plastic 5-incher give plenty of credibility to that rumor.
