Lenovo’s Vibe P1 and P1m handsets to launch in India on October 21st with huge batteries in tow

lenovo_logo_2015_sign_1_TA

Some manufacturers follow the strategy of slimming down the handset’s battery to make the device as thin as possible, often, seemingly, to the detriment of the user experience. Lenovo is bucking that trend, though, with its Vibe P1 and Vibe P1m handsets sporting batteries with capacities of 5,000mAh and 4,000mAh respectively. According to a media invite sent out earlier, Lenovo is launching both handsets in India on October 21st.

Lenovo_VIBE_P1_Front_Back_Side

Let’s take a look at the larger of the two handsets first, the Vibe P1. Lenovo has bundled in features such as Rocket Charge, which seems to be very much like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, delivering 2.8 hours of talk-time for just 5 minutes of charge. There’s also a physical switch that enables the OneKey Power Saver function, extending battery life. The Vibe P1 will launch in India for around Rs. 17,500 ($ 270) on October 21st.

  • Android 5.1 Lollipop with Vibe UI
  • 5.5-Inch Full LD IPS display (Gorilla Glass 3)
  • Snapdragon 615 Octa-core processor @ 1.5GHz (64-bit)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB Internal storage
  • MicroSD card support (up to 128GB)
  • 13MP Rear camera with dual-focus and dual LED flash
  • 5MP Front camera
  • Fingerprint sensor built-in to the Home button
  • Dual-SIM standby
  • 4G/LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.1 LE/ NFC/WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac
  • Battery: 5,000mAh (non-removable)
  • Dimensions: 152.9 75.6 x 9.9mm
  • Weight: 189 grams
  • Available in Platinum or Graphite Grey.

 

Lenovo_VIBE-P1m

On to the mini version of the Vibe P1, if you will, the 5-inch Vibe P1m, and here we see a more budget-friendly offering from Lenovo. The Vibe P1m doesn’t have NFC connectivity, bit it does apparently have a nano-coating to help it withstand accidental spills, as well the physical OneKey Power Saver switch, which helps extend battery life. Check out the rest of the specifications below.

  • Android 5.1 lollipop with Vibe UI
  • 5-Inch IPS display with 1280 x 720 resolution
  • MediaTek MT6735P quad-core processor @ 1.0GHz
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB Internal storage
  • MicroSD card support (up to 32GB)
  •  8MP Rear camera with autofocus and LED flash
  • 5MP Front camera
  • Dual-SIM support with 4G/LTE connectivity
  • Bluetooth 4.1 LE/ WiFi/ GPS/GPS-A
  • Battery: 4,000mAh (non-removable)
  • Dimensions: 141 x 71.8 x 9.3mm
  • Weight: 148 grams
  • Available in Onyx Black and Pearl White

The Vibe P1m will launch in India on October 21st, with a price tag of around Rs. 10,000 ($ 154). What do you think of Lenovo’s Vibe P1 and P1m handsets? Have they been priced keenly enough for India’s congested smartphone market?

LG, Huawei’s Nexus phones to be up for pre-order on October 13

Nexus_5_Back_Slanted_Nexus_Logo_TA

Two Nexus phones are coming this year. Both LG, a company familiar with the Nexus line, and Huawei will be producing the phones for Google’s signature hardware brand. The Huawei-made Nexus phone will be larger and have ‘better’ specifications than LG’s offering, but the latter will bring Nexus phones back to a more affordable price. Google is expected to announce the new devices at an event held in San Francisco on September 29. The pre-order date, though, is not set for that same day. You’ll have to wait a few weeks to secure your new Nexus phone.

A source tells Talk Android that both LG and Huawei’s Nexus phones will be made available for pre-order on October 13. This date is exactly two weeks after the aforementioned event. What the source did not provide us with is a shipping date; however, Nexus devices have a history in shipping 1-3 weeks after an announcement or when pre-orders are first taken.

Being that Google has still not confirmed an event for September 29, the October 13 pre-order date could change in the coming weeks. Or perhaps it ends up being the actual shipping date if Google does indeed decide to make either device available on the same day. For now, we are marking our calendars for September 29 and October 13.

Here is a recap of Nexus phone timelines:

  • Nexus One: December 12, 2009 (confirmed); January 5, 2010 (released)
  • Nexus S: December 6, 2010 (announced); December 16, 2010 (released)
  • Galaxy Nexus: October 19, 2011 (announced); November 17, 2011 (released)
  • Nexus 4: October 29, 2012 (announced); November 13, 2012 (released)
  • Nexus 5: October 31, 2013 (announced, pre-ordering started)
  • Nexus 6: October 15, 2014 (announced); October 29, 2014 (pre-ordering started)
