Lenovo touts up to 34 days of standby time on a 2G network.
A 4,000 mAh battery isn’t something one will often see on a smartphone, but the Lenovo P70, which has been announced in China, is a new addition to the list of devices that sport such large batteries to keep things running. Lenovo is touting a standby time of 34 days on 2G, 29 days on 3G and 30.5 days on 4G, figures pretty high for even a mid-range device.
The specs of the P70 include a 5-inch 720p IPS display, the octa-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, dual SIM and LTE connectivity, and 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD slot for further expansion. There’s Android 4.4 KitKat on the software front, and the phone is considerably thin at 8.9mm despite having the gigantic battery on the back.
The Lenovo P70 is available in China for 1,,399 Yuan ($222). A release in other markets hasn’t been announced, but it’s likely the P70 will be making its way to a few Asian countries in the near future.
