Lenovo seems to be coming to market with a new phone — the Lenovo P770 — and this one is going to turn a few heads based on a couple of different factors. Let’s start with the specs, shall we? Those who eventually opt for one can look forward to a 4.5 inch display with qHD resolution, a 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek processor, a 5 megapixel camera, a VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, Jelly Bean and more.
But it’s the battery that’s going to jump out at you. This thing challenges the Motorola DROID RAZR Maxx HD with a 3,500mAh battery, a kit that Lenovo says will deliver 29 hours of talk time. Whether or not those claims are accurate remain to be seen, but even if you shave a few hours off of that it’s still quite impressive.
Even more impressive is the price Lenovo’s putting on the P770. The device will cost ¥1,699 in China, which is just over $270 here in the states. Sure, MediaTek is no Qualcomm or NVIDIA but we’d be damned if we could find another phone in this range for this price. Well… the Nexus 4 is a more attractive offering for just $300 but you can’t quite get a 3,500mAh battery inside that thing even if you wanted to.
Unfortunately Lenovo has a history of skipping out on launches outside of Asia so those of you who want to snap this thing up will have to find a way to import it once it becomes available.
