Lenovo is gearing up to launch a new smartphone in India called the P2. Lenovo has been teasing the smartphone launch on social media, and today Flipkart has put up a new teaser which confirms that the Lenovo P2 will be exclusively sold on the e-commerce site. The teaser comes in the form of a GIF image with nine boxes, having jumbled letters ‘Lenovo P2’ with battery icon, phone icon and a 100 percent charge icon. Users can grab a screenshot with the phone name and share it with Flipkart to win vouchers worth Rs 1,000. There is however no word yet on an exact launch date.
Unveiled at IFA 2016 in Berlin, the highlight of the smartphone is its massive 5,100mAh battery, which Lenovo claims is good enough to offer up to 78 hours of talktime on a single charge. Backed with support for fast charging, even 15 minutes of charging is good enough to offer up to 10 hours of battery life, Lenovo claims. The smartphone also features reverse charging, allowing you to charge other devices.
