Lenovo is preparing for a new Motorola launch event which will take place in China on September 6, and that is when the company is expected to launch the Motorola Moto Z and possibly unveil the mysterious Moto Z Play. But as far as “Lenovo” the brand goes, the acquisition of Motorola hasn't stopped the company from working on a new series of smartphones of its own. In fact, recent evidence reveals that one of Lenovo's upcoming mysterious devices has already been certified by Bluetooth SIG, and carries model number “Lenovo P2a42”.
According to the Bluetooth SIG documentation, the mysterious Lenovo P2a42 is equipped with a Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 14nm system-on-chip, featuring eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at frequencies of up to 2.0 GHz and an Adreno 506 graphics chip, and supports LPDDR3 RAM and Cat.7 LTE connectivity. In other words, this is the same chipset powering the ZTE Axon Max 2, the Xiaomi Redmi 4, and the Samsung Galaxy C7, and it’s also the same silicon which will presumably power the Lenovo Vibe P2: another leaked Lenovo smartphone which appears to be nearing market release. But getting back to the mysterious Lenovo P2a42 at hand, Bluetooth SIG further reveals that the smartphone is equipped with a 5.5-inch LCD display with an unknown resolution, as well as a 13-megapixel main camera coupled with a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfie enthusiasts.
As for the smartphone’s whereabouts, seeing how it has been certified by Bluetooth SIG and was listed in the database as early as August 1st, it’s only natural to assume that Lenovo is working on bringing the device to the market sooner rather than later. Furthermore, the same Lenovo P2a42 was also spotted in the database of Postel not long ago, which is the equivalent of the FCC in Indonesia. No other details have been revealed by Postel, other than the same model number spotted in the Bluetooth SIG database. Needless to say, the smartphone’s availability and pricing details are unknown at this point, but spec-wise it does seem to share at least one similarity with the rumored Lenovo Vibe P2, which was also spotted in the Geekbench database recently, rocking model number “P2c72” along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC and 4 GB of RAM.
