Lenovo pushes out smartphone with 29 hour battery life, 26 days stand-by
Lenovo China has revealed its latest smartphone, which packs in a super high-capacity 3,500mAh battery giving it an incredible 29 hours of talk time. The Lenovo IdeaPhone P770 also offers users up to 644 hours of stand-by time, the equivalent of 26 days. In addition to the battery, the use of a mid-range dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 3G-only is also how the device manages to achieve its Droid Razr Maxx beating performance.
The Lenovo P770 comes preloaded with Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean' with Lenovo's familiar 'Mondrian' custom skin. Despite its mid-range status, it comes equipped with a 4.5-inch IPS display with a qHD resolution of 960x540 pixels. Beyond the 3G radio, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi 802.11n is built-in as is GPS.
Lenovo also say the device features 'Chi-sound' audio technology that allows it to be used for conference calls with a speaker and dual-mic radius of five meters. Despite its oversize battery, the P770 manages to keep its weight to 161 grams. Although it is not known if the device will make it stateside, it retails in China for the equivalent of just $273 off-contract. [via Unwired View]
