If your smartphone keeps dying on you by the end of the day and you’re sick of having to look for a charger everytime, you’re in luck as Lenovo has officially announced the Vibe P1 and Vibe P1m, Android smartphones where its key selling point would be its massive batteries. The Vibe P1 comes with a 5,000mAh, while the Vibe P1m features a 4,000mAh battery.
Granted the difference of 1,000mAh between both models is substantial, but they are still bigger than what’s being offered in the market today. Both handsets will feature the ability to rapidly charge your smartphone albeit in different ways. The P1 calls theirs Rocket Charge and will provide 2.8 hours of talk time on a 5 minute charge. The P1m calls their Quick Charge and can provide 2.45 hours of talk time on a 15 minute charge.
Other than that, both phones are quite different in their specs. The P1 will feature a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch Full HD display. The P1m will be powered by a 64-bit MediaTek processor with a 5-inch HD display and will come with 16GB of RAM by default, versus the 32GB on the P1, but both will support microSD expansion.
The P1 will also be more “premium” thanks to its aluminum frame and Gorilla Glass 3 display, and will come with a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The P1m will come with a polycarbonate build with an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera.
In terms of pricing and availability, both phones won’t be sold in North America, but in countries that it will be available in, they will be priced at $279 for the P1 and $159 for the P1m and are expected to be available in October and September respectively.
