That time has finally arrived and DROID owners can now enjoy the benefits a more detailed notification area, Google Now, and Google Voice Search.

The updates should be available to both the RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD via OTA updates.

So far Motorola has been the only one that can provide huge batteries in smartphones, but Lenovo is about to challenge it with the P770. It’s an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean droid with a massive 3,500mAh battery (200mAh more than the RAZR MAXX HD).

The Lenovo P770 measures 133 x 67 x 11.9mm and weighs 161g (not quite as slender as Motorola DROID MAXX HD’s 131.9 x 67.9 x 9.3mm, 157g). It has a 4.5″ qHD IPS screen and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor with 1GB of RAM.

The P770 is rated at just over 29 hours of continuous talk time and nearly a month of standby. The phone features three power-saving modes: long standby, normal and custom. It also automatically calibrates battery readings to display accurate battery percentages.

It’s not quite clear from Lenovo’s site if the battery is user-replaceable or not (the Motorola RAZR HD MAXX has a non-replaceable battery).

Anyway, the Lenovo P770 also features a 5MP camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, two microphones for noise reduction and a customized Android 4.1.

These specs don’t sound too exciting, but the P770 is priced CNY 1,699 ($273, €210) in China (it’s available now) and you get an 8GB microSD card in the box. For now the phone is available only in China and Lenovo hasn’t announced plans to make it available worldwide.
