New Lenovo P70 smartphone with 4000mAh battery reaches India at Rs 15999

If you’ve been waiting for Lenovo’s P70 smartphone which has a mammoth-size battery to launch in India, the handset has quietly gone up for pre-order. And the best part is that it will not cost you much as the official price tag is just Rs 15999.

Now, that amount does seem quite high for a mid-range release. But for the hardware you’ll be getting, it’s totally worth it. The main highlight of the Lenovo P70 is its 4000mAh battery which is great for power users. According to the official estimate, you can expect at least 48 hours of non-stop calling (probably on 2G) or around 34 days of standby.
