Lenovo has finally released its powerful mid-range smartphone in India to compete with blooming rivals in the category. The Chinese company is now taking pre-orders for its all-new P70 smartphone, months after its originally launch (February 2015).
The handset is priced competitively at ₹15,999, challenging other smartphones in the mid-range category. Lenovo has focused largely on the battery for its P70, while making no compromise on other aspects such as camera, design and performance.
If you are interested in purchasing the Lenovo P70, place your order on Lenovo's The Do Store. The shipping will start on 24 April. Lenovo has only listed the Midnight Blue variant of Lenovo P70.
Lenovo P70 can easily be compared with handsets like HTC Desire 816G, Samsung Galaxy E7, Huawei Honor 3C or the XOLO Q3000 and Intex Aqua Power HD, which offer extensive battery life. The P70 is equipped with a 4,000mAh battery and promises up to 46 hours of talktime, which is the handset's major USP.

In line with Lenovo's signature design, the P70 offers a clean and flat build measuring 8.9mm thick. It also packs a 5-inch 720p HD IPS display and is powered by a 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek (MT6752) processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory with expandable up to 32GB. The handset packs ARM MaliT760 GPU for graphics and supports games like Asphalt 8, Real Football 2015 and more. The integrated MediaTek processor supports 4G LTE, allowing users to browse high-speed data on mobile. The handset runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and is eligible for Lollipop update in the Q2 2015, Lenovo confirmed.
