Lenovo is going against the tides after strongly building its base for budget smartphones in India. Shortly after ending the flash sale concept for its Lenovo K3 Note smartphone, the Chinese tech giant announced that the newly-released Lenovo A2010 will also be available freely without registrations in India. Both black and white colour variants of the handset are available for Rs 4,990.
Lenovo continues its exclusive partnership with Flipkart, India's renowned online retailer, to sell the A2010 smartphone, like it does with other budget smartphones including K3 Note, A6000 Plus and A7000. Lifting the flash sale restriction puts several customers at ease as they no longer need to stay on their toes to perform a task as simple as buying a smartphone.
Lenovo A2010 is the company's cheapest smartphone with 4G LTE capability. The handset offers valuable specs for the price, as it is powered by a 64-bit class quad-core 1GHz MediaTek MT6735m chipset, 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable memory. Lenovo A2010 boasts a 4.5-inch FWVGA (480x584 pixel) display, five-megapixel rear-facing camera, two-megapixel front snapper and offers dual-SIM support.
Lenovo A2010 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and packs a 2,000mAh battery for all-day use.
The handset's compact design makes quite an appeal to the young lot, who are constantly on the lookout for innovative designs at an affordable price. Lenovo understands the need of its customers and brings suitable handsets to the market.
With a wide range of 4G-enabled smartphones, Lenovo beat leading companies such as Samsung, Micromax and others in becoming India's leading 4G smartphone brand during the second quarter this year. The company has successfully sold more than a million 4G smartphones in the first half of the year.
"Lenovo has seen phenomenal growth this year with 3.3 times increase in sales in Q2 2015-16 as compared to sales in the corresponding quarter last year. Overall, the shipment of smartphones to India has increased by 44 percent as compared to the same period last year. Lenovo's presence in both online & offline channels has provided consumers with better access to its smartphone portfolio in more than 1,000 cities/towns across the country," the company said in a statement.
