Lenovo has just launched its P2 smartphone in India exclusively on Flipkart where it went on sale at Rs 16,999 base price from 11:59pm on 11th January onwards, that is today.

It has rounded corners, ergonomic curved back design, and full-metal unibody design and comes in champagne gold or graphite gray. As for the display, it sports a 5.5-inch full-HD Super AMOLED screen.

The company claims Active Standby of up to 32 days (4G) and talk time of up to 78.69 hours (4G).
