Lenovo has launched its recently unveiled budget 4G smartphone, A6000, at Rs 6,999. At this price, it will be the cheapest 4G-enabled smartphone available in the market.
It packs a lot of exciting features, which would give its competitors, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and Asus Zenfone 4, a tough run. Lenovo A6000 is not very different from other Android smartphones, as far as its looks are concerned. It has a rectangular form with rounded corners with a plastic shell. The back panels of the phone are available separately, which means you can switch to any other colour than black, whenever you wish. The phone also has a very utilitarian design and it’s quite lightweight too.
The 4G smartphone features a 12.7-cm (5-inch) IPS HD display with 720×1920 pixels resolution with some vibrant colours. Below the display there are three capacitive touch navigation buttons which are responsive enough. It has an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2MP front camera right above the display. The phone also packs a 2,300mAh removable battery, two micro SIM card slots and a microSD card slot.
It is powered by a 64-bit 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. It supports 4G LTE along with 3G network and Bluetooth 4.0. Though the second sim card slot of the phone doesn’t support 3G and 4G connectivity. Lenovo A6000 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with Vibe UI 2.0 custom interface. App drawer, app icons and widgets are spread across the home screen too.
With this launch, Lenovo has set a competition for other players to introduce 4G smartphones with the same or lesser price label to stay in the race. Lenovo has partnered with Indian leading e-commerce portal Flipkart to sell the device in the fastest growing smartphone market. Registrations have already begun and the first flash sale for Lenovo A6000 will take place on 28 January at 2pm.
