Lenovo P2 hits Flipkart starting at Rs 16999

Even though Lenovo acquired Motorola quite some time ago, it’s still keeping its very own brand name alive and recently released the Lenovo P2 in India. The smartphone is a budget device priced starting at Rs 16999. It forgoes Android Nougat for Marshmallow and embeds an octa core Snapdragon 625 processor.

Only the 32GB capacity has been launched here, the 64GB version being exclusive to China. Design-wise, the P2 is nothing to write home about. It’s your generic-looking Android handset with a physical Home button on the front and camera/flash setup on the back.

The front button also doubles as a fingerprint sensor, by the way. The 3GB RAM version of the smartphone is available on Flipkart for Rs 16999, while its 4GB RAM variant goes for Rs 17999 through the ecommerce vendor.

Flipkart sells the Lenovo P2 in two color options – gray and champagne gold. Axis Bank Buzz credit holders get a discount of 5%, while PhonePe users can earn up to Rs 300 as part of its cashback offer. Buyers can also throw in their old device for a further reduction in the cost of the Lenovo phone.

Specifications of the Lenovo P2:

– 5.5-inch 1080p full HD AMOLED display
– Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS
– 2GHz octa core Snapdragon 625 processor
– 3GB or 4GB RAM, 32GB ROM, 128GB expandability
– 13MP rear camera with flash, 5MP front lens
– Dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS
– 5100mAh battery

In other news, Lenovo is expected to launch new Moto phones (probably the G5 Plus and a cheaper variant) on February 26 at the Mobile World Congress. And Moto X Play users can look forward to a Nougat update by the end of this month.
