After making a splash at CES, Lenovo is now heading back to launching the devices unveiled at the event. Apart from Vibe X2 Pro and P90, the company also unveiled A6000. We didn’t hear much about that smartphone during the CES as it was overshadowed by the other two devices unveiled by the company. Now A6000 is back in the limelight as news about its launch in India has been making rounds. Lenovo at CES confirmed that the smartphone will be launched in India, speculated launch date was the end of January. The company is launching the A6000 n 16th January in New Delhi, as per the event invitations out.
Lenovo with its latest offering will be heating up the competition in the Indian market especially for the under 10,000 INR category, as it will be priced below that mark. Lenovo A6000 will sport a 5-inch HD 1280 x 720 p display and will be power by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor. The device will be equipped with a 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. The smartphone features an 8-megapixel main and 2-megaixel rear cameras. A6000 also sports dual-speakers with Dolby Digital Plus technology and will run on Android 4.4 KitKat along with Lenovo’s own Vibe UI 2.0. The device will support a dual-sim capability, with 4G LTE connectivity and will be powered by a 2300mAh battery which the company claims can last up to 11.5 days on standby mode.
Lenovo A6000 will be sold online thorough FlipKart and the price is not confirmed yet, the company will announce this detail at the launch. Lenovo is all set to compete with smartphones like Micromax Yureka and Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4G, both of which fall under the 10,000 INR price category. India is off to a busy competitive year with Samsung already having introduced 5 smartphones from three different series (Z1, A3 & A5, E5 & E7) and now we have Lenovo’s latest offering. Indian smartphone market is one of the fastest growing markets in the world which presents a lot of growth potential, so different manufacturers are focusing on producing affordable devices with great specifications. The game is not limited to big brand names anymore which is evident through Samsung’s falling sales graph in India but it is all about devices with good specifications and affordable price tags. It will be interesting to see the developments and the increased competition in India this year.
