Chinese PC maker Lenovo today (7 April) officially launched feature-rich A7000 smartphone in India.

Lenovo A7000 was original unveiled on 2 March at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2015, Barcelona.

The USP of the device is that it boasts of advanced Dolby Atmos audio technology to ensure music and voices of artists are heard with more clarity and have a broader range from high to low, with the greatest subtlety.

Another note-worthy feature of the Lenovo A7000 is that it houses a 64-bit class MediaTek Octa-core SoC (System on Chip). One of the advantages of having a 64-bit processor is that the phone's performance and RAM management will be more optimized, so that the resources are efficiently used among the apps. Moreover, the use of 8-cores makes the phone work efficiently and flawlessly, which results in less lag while performing multi-tasking like opening numerous app at single time or while playing high-intensity games.

And most of the apps which are being released this year have been developed using 64-bit class compatible codes, making Lenovo A7000 future-proof.

As per the leaked AnTuTu benchmarks score-sheet, Lenovo A7000 beats Samsung Galaxy S5, Xiaomi Mi 4 and other top-end smartphones.
