Lenovo launched the P70 in China today, with the standout feature of the device being the 4,000 mAh battery that is claimed to provide a standby time of 34 days on 2G, 29 days on 3G and 30.5 days on 4G.
Other hardware on the Lenovo P70 is standard fare, and is in the form of a 5-inch 720p IPS display, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot, MediaTek's 64-bit octa-core MT6752 SoC with eight Cortex A53 cores at 1.7 GHz and a Mali-T760-MP2 GPU clocked at 700 MHz. There's Wi-Fi 802.11n, dual-SIM functionality and LTE Category 4 connectivity for both FDD & TDD networks as well as DC-HSPA+ and TD-SCDMA. At the back, the P70 has a 13 MP camera with LED flash, with a 5 MP shooter featured at the front. On the software front, the device features Android 4.4 KitKat.
The massive battery does not make the device look overly bulky, and with dimensions of 142 x 71.8 x 8.9 mm, the P70 is in fact thinner than the 2014 Moto G, which has a thickness of 11 mm. The Lenovo P70 is now available in China for 1,399 Yuan ($222). At this stage, there's no word on when it'll be available in other countries.
