Lenovo is on a smartphone launch spree with several devices including Moto G4, G4 Plus, G4 Play, Moto Z and Z Force that were all made official recently. The China-based electronics giant might not be done yet, as a new Lenovo smartphone was spotted on a benchmarking site on Thursday. Lenovo P2c72, a possible codename for Lenovo Vibe P2, is expected to be launched soon as key specs were revealed in a Geekbench listing.
According to the Geekbench Browser listing of Lenovo P2, the handset appears to be a premium handset. It is said to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset with 2GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU, 4GB RAM and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. With this configuration, the handset scored 922 in single-core test and 4896 in multi-core test.
Lenovo P2 will succeed last year's Vibe P1 smartphone and Vibe P1 Turbo, which was launched in February. Going by the leaked specifications of the Vibe P2, the upcoming handset will be a worthy upgrade to both of its predecessors.
By comparison, Lenovo Vibe P1 featured Snapdragon 615 processor combined with 2GB RAM while the Vibe P1 Turbo was a minor step up with 3GB RAM configuration. Other details about the Vibe P2 aren't available to compare and see how the new handset could offer a better appeal against the previous-gen models.
To recap, the Vibe P1 packed a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a 13MP primary camera with LED flash and a 5MP front snapper. It offered 32GB expandable storage and a massive 5,000mAh battery, which was the main USP of the device. The handset also offered fingerprint scanning technology within its Home button and other standard features such as dual SIM support, 4G LTE and NFC.
If Lenovo is offering an upgrade to its P1 smartphone, then it is likely to offer some more improvements in order to match the current standards of the smartphone market. The launch date of the P2 smartphone is also a mystery, but we expect to hear more soon.
