Lenovo claims its OTG charging will let users charge other devices using the large battery of the two phones. The new rocket charging feature is, however, available only on the Vibe P1, and gives the phone 2000mAh battery life with just under 10 minutes of charge, claims Lenovo.

Our first impression is that both phones do not look like devices with large batteries inside, nor do they feel heavy. This could work in favour of the Lenovo.

At the launch event for the new Lenovo Vibe P1 smartphones, the company said it is now the fifth largest smartphone brand in India and has sold 3 million 4G phone in India till now, which comes to 20 phones a minute.

Lenovo’s online partner Flipkart claimed that during the recent Big Billion Days sale, they saw over 600,000 Lenovo and Motorola phones get sold in three days. Over 90 per cent of these orders were on the app.

To cater to the extra large batteries and long time they will take to charge, the phones will come with a 24v charger which can charge up to 2000 mAh in under 30 minutes. The charger is intelligent enough to switch to 12v if plugged on to a regular smartphone.
