Are you prepared for the new Lenovo P780? That is the question asked by the NBA star Kobe Bryant in the latest Behind the Scenes video about the upcoming Lenovo P780. In the video, which is a part of the new Lenovo Ad – campaign, the NBA star can be seen playing basketball and talking about the new phone. The video ends with a static picture of Kobe Bryant holding the new device.
Now, let’s explore the P780 facts available so far. According to reliable sources, the new handset will have a 5-inch 720p ultra sensitive screen and a battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh. That looks like an improvement compared with the P770 handset (with its 4.5- inch display and a 3500 mAh battery). Other rumors say that Lenovo P780 will be 9.9 mm thick and feature a super sensitive touch technology, same as some Huawei and Nokia models (Lumia 820 and Lumia 920). From the video, we can make the conclusion that Lenovo P780 will have a metal body and it will be more suitable for business people.
Several websites have already published some leaked pictures of the new Lenovo, and according to the rumors the device will have a dual – SIM card slot. The chipset is expected to be a quad –core, possible MT 6589 with 1 GB of RAM. There will be an 8 – megapixel camera on board and the device will run Android 4.2, other rumors say.
The release date could be around mid- May, but that is still not confirmed. Lenovo is yet to reveal the other characteristics and whether the phone will be available outside China. We can only guess that like most of the new phones Lenovo, it could be released only in China, but we will wait for some official statement first.
