CES 2015 Live: Lenovo A6000 LTE smartphone announced, to launch in India exclusively on Flipkart



Last week, BGR India had exclusively reported that Lenovo was planning on launching an aggressively priced LTE capable smartphone. Today at CES, the company finally took the wraps off the device, named A6000. The smartphone is reportedly priced at $169 (Rs 10,500 approximately), and will be launched in India later this month. However, we believe it will be priced more aggressively when it lands on Indian shores.

As far as specifications go, the Lenovo A6000 flaunts a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) display, and is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor with 64-bit capability and paired with 1GB of RAM. Also included is 8GB internal storage.

The smartphone also features an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, twin-speakers with Dolby Digital Plus technology 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 support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. On the software front, the A6000 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat wrapped under Vibe UI 2.0, and also comes preloaded with Guvera music app.

These specifications suggest that the device is essentially a variant of the Lenovo K3, which launched in China last month. As we had reported before, the A6000 will also be exclusively available via Flipkart. The initial spec sheet doesn’t mention TDD LTE compatibility for Band 40, which current 4G networks use but we are expecting the Indian version to support it as well. Update: Lenovo has confirmed that the A6000 will support both TD-LTE in Band 40 and FD-LTE in Band 20, which would be required for Indian carriers.

Lenovo has been quite busy this year at CES having already unveiled the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, Vibe Xtension Selfie flash, P90, Yoga Tablet 2, Vibe X2 Pro, and its first ever wearable device — Vibe Band VB10.
