Just when we thought that Lenovo was done announcing devices after the K6 family was made official, we were greeted by a couple more new models – the Lenovo P2, and the A Plus. A quick glance at the specs reveals the two to be positioned in vastly different market segments.
The Lenovo P2 is the better one, a nicely-specced midranger with a 5.5-inch FullHD AMOLED display. It’s the Snapdragon 625 chipset doing the number-crunching, paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, while built-in storage is 32GB. Those are the global figures – the Chinese version will come with 4GB of RAM only, and 64GB of internal memory. Storage is expandable regardless of regional version.
The primary camera on the back of the P2 is a 13MP Sony affair with a dual LED flash. There’s a 5MP front-facer too, to take care of selfies. There’s the mandatory fingerprint sensor, on this model it’s located on the front for a change.
The P2 is big on power features, too. For starters, it packs an ample 5,100mAh battery and is quick to charge it with its 24-watt charger. It can also be used to charge other devices, so you don’t need to carry an external battery to top up, say, a Bluetooth speaker. There’s also a power save mode activated at a flick of a switch.
The P2 will be priced at €249/€299 in Europe, and will be available in November.
Lenovo A Plus
The Lenovo A Plus is a decidedly budget offering. It packs a 4.5-inch display with 854 x 480 pixel resolution and is powered by a Mediatek MT6580 chipset with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. There’s a single gig of RAM on board, and internal storage is just 8GB, thankfully expandable.
The camera department is represented by a 5MP primary shooter (with a single LED flash) and a basic 2MP front-facer. Battery capacity is 2,000mAh, which isn’t impressive, but may very well be enough for the hardware. A dual-SIM version will be available.
The Lenovo A Plus is priced at €69/€79 and is available to purchase as we speak.
