Ok, so here comes Lenovo’s answer to Redmi 2. After roaring success of its A6000 smartphone, company is all set to reveal its successor Lenovo A7000 in Indian mobile market. The device, which was originally exhibited at Mobile World Congress, will be launched on April 7, 2015 in India and is expected to be priced just below Rs. 10,000. The media invites of launch event featuring a Dolby Atmos theater along with Lenovo and Dolby Atmos have been sent out, and interestingly, the event is also about to take place in a Dolby Atmos sound technology enabled theater, which kind of confirms the launch of A7000.
It’s the first smartphone to come with built-in Dolby Atmos Sound technology, which already makes it a great choice for music lovers. Lenovo has already stated that this smartphone can make even regular sound seem better than “regular” with help of Dolby Atmos.
Even if you’re not that much into music, this device has still got a lot for you – Lenovo A7000 comes with a gorgeous 5.5-inch 720p HD IPS display, 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752M processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 32GB of expandable storage, Android 5.0 Lollipop with Lenovo’s trademark Vibe UI, 8MP auto-focus primary camera and 5MP fixed-focus secondary camera. The phone is 7.9 mm thick and weighs only 140 gms. 4G capability is also present, although that doesn’t matter much because even 3G is not present properly in India. Finally, to power everything mentioned here there lies a 2900 mAh battery underneath.
Needless to say that this smartphone has everything needed to give some serious competition to Xiaomi Redmi 2, Micromax Yu Yureka and Huawei Honor 4X. However, how far it goes will be determined by its price tag. The specs are looking good and with Dolby Atmos there’s some sense of exclusivity as well to differentiate the device from competitive offerings. All needed now is an appropriate price tag to steal the show from existing players.
The sale of device is once again expected to take place at Flipkart and the first Flash sale may be held at April 15. And by the way, in the meantime A6000 will be up for grabs for the first time on a “first come, first serve” basis. So if you can afford A7000 and are interested in its specs then you may wanna wait until it’s launched. Otherwise if you wish you can grab A6000 in the meantime, which is undoubtedly a great choice for its price. Do let us know which device would you like to buy and why in comments below.
