A New 4G smartphone has entered the Indian market for Rs.6999. Yes, you are reading it right. Lenovo, the Beijing based company launched the affordable 4G LTE Smartphone Lenovo A6000 at CES, Las Vegas last week. It has now unveiled it in India at an unbelievable price of Rs.6999 ($113). It is so far the cheapest 4G smartphone in India with competitive specifications.
It is quite unbelievable to find that this 4G smartphone has been priced even lesser than Micromax’s Yureka ($145) and Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4G ($160). The trend of online-only sales which worked for Xiaomi has rubbed onto Lenovo too. Lenovo has once again joined hands with Flipkart for its exclusive launch of A6000 through online shopping. Currently registrations are open and the phone is set to be out by 28th January.
The 5″A6000 has Vibe user interface as the previous phones, 1280×720 pixel display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core 64-bit processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB stores. These phone will run on Android version 4.4 KitKat, powered by a 2300 mAh battery. It is astonishing to find 8-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel selfie camera, dual SIM support and digital Dolby speaker in this low-priced smartphone.
This pleasantly light-weighted phone comes in black colour but the back panel could be swapped for white or red. The back panels would have to be bought separately. It should also be noted that the second SIM card slot does not support 3G or 4G connectivity.
Lenovo A6000 would definitely be a tough competitor in the wars between the low-priced 4G handsets in the Indian market. The verdict could be passed only after its hits the market.
