Lenovo P2 has its battery as the USP, and it also supports on-to-go charging. The device can be used as a powerbank to charge other smartphones as well. Lenovo P2 also supports fast-charging capabilities. It has a plastic back with a metal finish and frames on the side.
Lenovo P2 comes with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED FHD display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2 GHz.
