Lenovo now has new Android smartphone – the P770 dedicated for those who demand smartphones with durable battery. Undoubtedly, the most interesting feature of this phone is its incredibly powerful 3500 mAh Li-Po battery.
As of now, the phone is available only in China for 1,699 CNY, meaning about $273. We have no official announcement when and if Lenovo plans to launch the P770 in the US anytime soon, however, if you want to give it a shot, you can purchase it unlocked and off contract from Aliexpress online retailer at a price starting at $329.

There were rumors about the battery being 4160 mAh, but they seem somewhat far fetched. The 3500 mAh is still 200 mAh more that the most powerful battery so far found on Motorola Droid Razr MAXX and MAXX HD. As Lenovo claims the monster battery can provide up to 29 hours of talk time and or up to 644 hours of standby time, which is 26 days.
The Lenovo P770 sports a 4.5-inch QHD IPS touch screen with 960 x 540 pixel resolution, 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera. The handset is driven by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, possibly MediTek made, and offers 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory, not too much but since it comes with an 8 GB microSD card you will not run out of space too soon.
The P770 is also Dual-SIM, which means that you can insert two SIM cards and have two separate numbers on one device. A huge plus is that you can use both cards simultaneously, meaning you can chat on one line and at the same time download data on the second.
The Lenovo P770 comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, which although is rather heavily customized by Lenovo, should still put a smile on your face and make up for the fact that there is no 4G support so users will have to rely on 3G networks only. Other features include GPS, Wi-Fi, Google Mobile Services and some more standard tools found on average phone nowadays.
