Lenovo has unleashed a new smartphone with a long-lasting 4000mAh battery. It’s called the Lenovo P70, and it also has mid-range specifications: 5-inch 720p display, 2GB RAM and octa-core MediaTek CPU.
With the battery being its most prominent feature, the Lenovo P70 promises up to 46 hours on 2G talk time or 18 hours on 3G talk time. When on standby, the phone can last up to 34, 29 or 30.5 days on 2G, 3G or 4G, respectively. Such enormous battery would make one assume that the phone is probably bulky, but the P70 manages to be relatively slim—it measures only 8.9mm at its thickest point.

The Lenovo P70 is pretty much your average Lenovo smartphone when it comes to other features. Powered by an octa-core MediaTek chip, this smartphone offers 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.4 KitKat. The usual Lenovo apps from the DOit series are also present, along with dual SIM configuration and expandable storage. The P70 further offers USB On-The-Go charging, which essentially makes the phone a power source for other mobile devices to recharge, and Quick Charge, which lets itself fully recharge in just three hours.
The Lenovo P70 is already selling in China for CNY 1399 (approx. Php9,950). It’s way cheaper than the Lenovo P90, which offers not only better hardware, but also the same 4000mAh battery capacity.
