Lenovo has launched launch the P2 in India today for a price of Rs 16,999 . The distinctive feature of the smartphone is its massive 5,100mAh battery which the company claims can last for three whole days.

Battery life is one of the major problems of modern smartphones these days and the P2 looks to combat this issue with handy features such as a one key power saver and fast charging.

The smartphone comes with a 5.5-inch fullHD Super AMOLED display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3/4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded via a microSD card (of up to 128GB).

The Lenovo P2 comes with a mammoth 5,100mAh battery which Lenovo claims can last for an insane three days. It also comes with a 24W rapid charger and can be charged upto 80% in just 60 minutes. The smartphone also acts as a powerbank and can be used to charge other devices.

Design wise, the handset comes with a plastic back with metal frames on the side and just like its predecessor the Vibe P1, can be used as a power bank to charge other devices.

On the imaging front, the P2 rocks a 13MP sensor on the back and a 5MP sensor on the front for selfies.

One key power saver
The smartphone has a hardware physical switch at the side which when engaged basically turn the phone into a feature phone. Like Sony’s ‘Ultra Data Savings’ mode, it turns off all features except the bare essentials - calling and messaging.

The smartphone is a dualSIM device and supports 4G LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi. Bluetooth as well as GPS/A-GPS.

The device comes with a fingerprint sensor for added security. You can set up two profiles - one for work and one for your personal life and can switch between them on the fly. You can also lock individual apps as well as a whole profile.

The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is a bit disappointing considering Nougat has been out for months now.

Price and availability
The Lenovo P2 is set to come in two color options, namely Champagne Gold and Graphite Grey. The smartphone has been launched in two variants, one with 3GB of RAM for Rs 16,999 and one with 4GB of RAM for Rs 17,999.

The smartphone will be available from 11:59 PM today, January 11 exclusively via Flipkart.
