After the grand success of A6000 in India, Lenovo is coming up with its successor, a budget smartphone dubbed A7000, which can kill many big names in the smartphone market. According to earlier IBTimes reports, the budget Android smartphone features powerful specifications and expected to be available for a price below ₹10,000.
The budget smartphone has purportedly made its appearance in AnTuTu benchmarking site. According to the score, the A7000 managed to secure 42,538 points, beating its relatively expensive competitors like Huawei Mate 7, Xiaomi MI4 and Samsung Galaxy S5.
The score explains that A7000 will offer some beasty performance and pose a tough challenge to its similar or higher-priced competitors. In AnTuTu, anything above 30,000 is considered decent.
The A7000 features several improvements comparing to its predecessor. The latest smartphone features a 5.5-inch HD IPS display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, compared to Lenovo A6000's 5-inch display at same 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.
It also comes powered by a 1.5GHz MediaTek Processor with 16-core Mali-T760 GPU. The handset also packs 2GB RAM, 8GB ROM and memory expandability using the micro SD card slot.
On the camera front, Lenovo A7000 packs a 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixels front facing snapper. Backed by a 2,900 mAh battery, the A7000 is the industry's first smartphone featuring Dolby Atmos audio technology.
The Indian pricing is yet to be announced, but sources suggest the handset to be priced under ₹10,000, possibly between ₹8,999 and ₹9,999.
The device is expected to be released in India on 7 April and the first sale is likely to start from 15th April, 2015 onwards through Flipkart.
