The smartphone war is at its most intense right now as manufacturers are rolling out new devices at an alarmingly quick rate in an attempt to one-up each other.
Lenovo P770 battery capacity trumps Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD
One of the main selling factors of phones today is which device has the largest display, faster processor, software, camera and which device is the thinnest.
Simultaneously, when Motorola released the Droid Razr Maxx HD with a battery of 3300mAh, this was the device to beat when it came to battery life. The device was the first to have a stock battery of this size, even though add on batteries offer as much as 5000mAh on other devices. However Lenovo have broken this with the introduction of their P770, running Android. AndroidAuthority reports that the device which was leaked recently will come with a whopping 3500mAh battery.
Can you image just how many hours of stand-by a battery of 3500mAh would offer? The Lenovo P770 hasn’t been confirmed at the moment, however it would be a challenge to other manufactures, who typically offer handsets with outstanding features but whose batteries let them down (e.g. LG Nexus 4). The specs of the device fail to impress though as it is thought that it will have a dual core MediaTek 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. The display may be 4.5 inches and the resolution is expected to be around 960 x 540. The handset is rumoured to come with an 8 megapixel back camera and it should run on ICS, with an update to Jelly Bean 4.1 coming its way when it is launched. Those last specs should match the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD but isn’t good enough.
The device will have a retail price in China of 1,700 Yuan, which is around $270 USD. One of the important notes of the device is the fact that the company has set precedence when it comes to battery life and now we will have to wait to find out if the major players will be able to better it in 2013. Could there be a battery offering 4500mAh or even a 5000mAh inside a smartphone?
