Lenovo launches A7000 in India exclusively through Flipkart
Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) has launched their A7000 smartphone in India, exclusively with Flipkart, one of the nation’s largest e-commerce marketplace platforms. Running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the 4G/LTE smartphone contains a 64-Bit 1.5GHz Octa-Core processor and 2GB DDR3 RAM, along with a 13.97(5.5) cms HD display. The dual-SIM device comes with an 8MP auto-focus rear camera with dual-tone flash and 5MP fixed-focus front camera, and Lenovo says that the A7000 is the world’s first smartphone to feature the new Dolby® Atmos™ audio technology.
In addition to its audio and visual technologies, this multimedia smartphone is expected to provide an enhanced user experience with what the company calls “a powerful battery life required for all-day connectivity.” The A7000 is powered by a 2900mAh battery along with enhanced battery optimization features that Lenovo says will provide enough power to the 64-bit octa core processor. The A7000 also supports USB-OTG, which allows users to connect a USB Drive or even charge other phones, and is surprisingly thin and lightweight, measuring 7. 9 mm and weighing 140grams.
The A7000 is priced at Rs. 8,999 and is currently available exclusively on FlipKart.
Lenovo is a $39 billion global Fortune 500 company focused on consumer, commercial, and enterprise technologies. The company’s portfolio covers PCs, workstations, servers, storage, smart TVs and a variety of mobile devices and apps.
