As we reported before, the A6000 plus is essentially a slight upgrade over the A6000, which launched in India earlier this year. The new smartphone gets double the amount of RAM 2GB in comparison to 1GB and double the amount of internal storage 16GB in comparison to 8GB.
The rest of the specifications remain the same, so in essence you get a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) display, and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core 64-bit processor under the hood. Along with the 16GB internal memory, there is also a microSD card slot to expand the memory.
The smartphone also features an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel selfie camera up front, Dolby Digital Plus dual speakers, and a 2,300mAh battery, which the company claims is good enough for up to 13 hours of talktime on 3G and up to 11 days on standby mode.
Connectivity options include, dual-SIM card slots, LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat wrapped under Vibe 2.0 UI. As for color options, the smartphone will be available in black, white, yellow and red.
We were overwhelmed with the positive response from consumers for the A6000 and that triggered us at Lenovo to further enhance the multitasking capabilities of the device making it the best future-proof smartphone and offer superior experience to the millennials. The A6000 plus is a great value for money device with cutting-edge technology and distinctive features. said Sudhin Mathur, Director- Smartphones, Lenovo India said.
Lenovo s recently launched A7000 too went on sale for the first time on Flipkart this week. As has been the norm with Lenovo s flash sales, 30,000 handsets went out of stock in just four seconds. It will go on sale again next week on April 22.
