Lenovo has now made available the new Lenovo A6000 Plus smartphones for the Indian audience. And if you have been following the mobile market, then you probably know that Lenovo has already released the A6000 handset on the market. So, just judging by the name, the ‘Plus’, means that you will get something more when opting for this version.
The new Lenovo A6000 Plus is priced at Rs. 7,499, which is just a tad more than the Rs. 6,999 price of the Lenovo A6000 (which is currently out of stock on Flipkart, by the way). So, for just 8 more dollars, you will be able to get twice the RAM and inbuilt storage – 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage as opposed to the Lenovo A6000‘s 1GB and 8GB inbuilt storage. The rest of the specs are identical to the Lenovo A6000, as follows:
- 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display
- 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 with Adreno 306 400MHz GPU
- Android 4.4 KitKat-based, runs Lenovo’s Vibe UI 2.0 skin on top
- Dolby Digital Plus speakers
- 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash along with a 2-megapixel front camera
- 2300mAh – said to deliver up to 11 days of standby time on 2G/ 3G, and up to 22 hours of talk-time on 2G and 13 hours on 3G
- 8.2mm thin and weighs 128 grams
Sudhin Mathur, Director- Smartphones at Lenovo India, said the following:
We were overwhelmed with the positive response from consumers for the A6000 and that triggered us at Lenovo to further enhance the multitasking capabilities of the device making it the best future-proof smartphone and offer superior experience to the millennials. The A6000 plus is a great value for money device with cutting-edge technology and distinctive features
The Lenovo A6000 Plus smartphone will come in Black, White, Yellow and Red colors. At the current price and with double the RAM and internal storage, this new entry in Lenovo’s portfolio is a quite an aggressive move and will put further pressure on other competing devices. It’s also nice to see Lenovo react so fast to the success of the A6000 and to release a more powerful device for a slightly bigger price. And I’m almost sure that this move isn’t meant to make more money for Lenovo but to raise consumer awareness regarding its products.
