As expected, Lenovo India on Wednesday has launched the P2 smartphone in India for Rs 16,999. The phone will be available exclusively on online e-retailer Flipkart starting at 11:59PM on January 11, 2017.

The main USP of the phone is its big 5,100mAh battery which is also supported with fast charing technology that Lenovo executives claim is on par if not better than OnePlus’s dash charging technology. This means the phone would charge relatively quickly despite its massive battery.

There is also a hardware button that will enable the phone to enter a special battery saver mode which will enhance its battery life even further. Lenovo estimates that the phone can last up to 3 days on a single charge which is incredible for a modern Android smartphone.

The device has a 5.5-inch full HD Super AMOLED screen which is a superior technology to traditional LCD screens. Colours are usually more vibrant, blacks are deeper and the screen itself is more power efficient which furthers the cause of this phone being big on battery life. It also uses the older micro USB port.

Design wise, this phone has a full metal body and it weighs 177 grams and is 8.3mm thick. It is quite large though as it has a front mounted fingerprint scanner coupled with on-screen Android buttons.

Internally, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2GHz coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. It is a dual SIM smartphone which has a hybrid SIM supporting a microSD Card with up to 128GB of storage.

There’s a 13-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX 258 sensor, a f/2.0 aperture and a PDAF coupled with a new camera app. On the front, the phone has a 5-megapixel camera.

The device supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, FM Radio and 4G LTE with VoLTE support. It runs Android Marshmallow with a relatively stock interface with which will be to the liking of many an Android aficionado.
