After making a first appearance in a benchmark database, the Lenovo Vibe P2 seems to be ready to start hitting the market! A set of images taken at a trade show in Guangzhou, China, earlier this month, made the rounds online, showing the phone in its full glory.
Besides the premium design, featuring a metallic unibody and an almost bezel-less display, covered with 2.5D curved glass, we can also spot a pretty big physical Home button, most likely housing a fingerprint scanner.
It’s also obvious that the phone is relatively big, but with a very thin profile. According to some sources, the Lenovo Vibe P2 will have a 5.5″ AMOLED display, with an 1080p resolution. The use of an AMOLED panel is a premiere for Lenovo, as some of their previous models, like the Vibe P1 or the Vibe P1 Turbo, were relying on LCD panels. There’s a rumor that the company started using panels made by another big Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi.
Under the hood, the Vibe P2 is hiding Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset, with eight Cortex-A53 cores, each one of them running at 2.0 GHz. The processor is aided by 4 GB of RAM and an Adreno 506 GPU, while the internal storage capacity is still unknown, but it should count at least 32 GB, expandable using a microSD card.
One of the most attractive features of the Lenovo Vibe P2 is supposedly the battery. There aren’t any exact details about this, but if we look at its predecessor, the Vibe P1, which was powered by a 4900 mAh battery, it can help us make an idea. Keeping it short, we’re expecting a power pack with a capacity of around 5000 mAh and, of course, Qualcomm’s QuickCharge technology.
There aren’t any details about the camera setup either, but it’s very probable for Lenovo to opt for a popular configuration nowadays, with a 13 MP main camera and a 5 MP front-facing snapper.
Finally, the phone will run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, with a stock-ish look, another big plus.
