The company says that the update improves the smartphones’ performance and stability, while also fixing a few bugs. Users will be notified of the update, but one can also check for the update by heading over to Software update, under the settings menu.
In addition to releasing Lollipop update for the aforementioned smartphones, Lenovo says that it has so far sold over 1.3 million units of A6000 and A6000 plus. At launch, both the smartphones were Flipkart exclusive, but the A6000 is now available across major Lenovo retail stores. The A6000 plus, on the other hand, remains a Flipkart exclusive.
Lenovo A6000 specifications and features: The Lenovo A6000 was launched in India earlier this year, priced at Rs 6,999. It features a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core (64-bit), 1GB of RAM, and 8GB internal storage and microSD card support.
The smartphone also features an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 2,300mAh battery that the company claims is good enough for 13 hours of talktime and up to 11.5 days on standby mode. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, LTE and Wi-Fi. On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop once upgraded.
The Lenovo A6000 plus, on the other hand, is essentially a slight upgrade over the A6000, which was launched for Rs 7,499. It gets double the amount of RAM — 2GB in comparison to 1GB — and double the amount of internal storage — 16GB in comparison to 8GB.
