Chinese consumer electronics company Lenovo is planning to launch an affordable 4G smartphone in India soon.

The Economic Times, citing company insiders, has claimed that Lenovo would release an entry-level 4G smartphone A2010 in India that will be priced below Rs 5,000. 

The Lenovo A2010 was unveiled in Vietnam early this month for 1,690,000 Vietnamese Dong (around $77/€69/Rs 4,980). It features a 4.5-inch FWVGA TFT screen and runs on the Android Lollipop OS powered by a 64-bit class MediaTek processor, has 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory and a 2000 mAh battery.

Lenovo's 4G smartphones A6000, A7000, K3 Note series and its subsidiary Motorola's Moto series have been receiving good response in India, as reflected in the company's recently-declared second quarter results. Lenovo currently stands fourth among India's top smartphone sellers. 

Now, with the aggressive pricing of the Lenovo A2010, the Chinese company is poised to lure first-time smartphones buyers to increase its share in India.

The India smartphone market is growing at a fast pace and is expected to topple America as the second largest smartphone market in the world, after China, by 2017, says an IDC India report.
