Even before Lenovo introduced Lenovo A6000, at CES 2015, the handset was already quite popular in leaks and rumors all across the web. This smartphone has been tailor made for India, and the Chinese manufacturer will officially bring it to India on 16th January next week.
Expected to be priced less than 10,000 INR, Lenovo A6000 promises to be one of those rare sub 10k value for money devices from tier 1 manufacturers. It comes with a 5 Inch 720P IPS LCD display powered by 64 bit Snapdragon 410 quad core processor backed by 1 GB RAM, Adreno 306 GPU and 8 GB internal storage.
The handset also boasts of stereo speakers with dolby digital sound, though both speakers are present on the rear side. For photography, there is an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2 MP selfie camera on the front side. We have seen some great 8 MP shooters last year in sub-10k price range, and hope Lenovo A6000 matches the set standard.
It measures 141 x 70 x 8.2 mm and weighs just 128 gram. The back cover is removable and so is the 2300 mAh battery housed inside. Software is Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Vibe UI on top. Other features include Dual SIM functionality, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
The handset will primarily compete with phones like Redmi Note 4G and Yureka in India. It will exclusively retail on Flipkart very soon in India. We will be present on the ground and update you with our initial impressions of the device on 16th January 2015.
