After announcing it at CES 2015 last week, Lenovo has kept its word and announced the A6000 in India today. The smartphone was launched in an event held in New Delhi today and was one of the most anticipated device post the Consumer Electronics Show. The USP of the smartphone is that it supports LTE despite its extremely low cost.
The device is following the examples set by Xiaomi and Motorola in catering to all the needs of a modern day consumer irrespective of the budget slab and will be available for Rs 6,999. Like most of the budget devices with decent or high-end specifications, the Lenovo A6000 will be an E-Com exclusive selling on Flipkart. You will be required to register on the portal in order to be eligible to pick the device up, in a model that is oh so familiar thanks to the likes of Xiaomi and more recently Yu. This gives us a feeling that once again, this is a marketing driven initiative and not a big enough inventory is actually being made available.
In terms of specifications, the device has a 12.7 inch diagonal display with a 720 P resolution, which should in theory make for a very decent display. The A6000 is powered by Snapdragon 410 which is a Quad Core SoC built on 64 bit architecture. The phone has Dolby certified dual speakers and has Android 4.4.4 KitKat at the heart of it. There is 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of ROM with expansion slot via Micro SD here. The Lenovo A6000 has 2300 mAh battery giving it a decent battery backup. There is support for both FDD and TDD bands which means all of the 4G LTE bands will be supported here making the smartphone totally future proof.
