2015’s Lenovo A7000 is getting the Android Marshmallow 6.0 software update. The smartphone which was selling at a price of Rs 9000 at launch, is currently available for less than Rs 8000 through some online and offline vendors. Its specs are decent enough for the amount it commands and with the new update, some might consider it worth the money.
A few users of the Lenovo A7000 have already started receiving Marshmallow v6.0 which comes bundled along with the Android security patch released for March. Like most such software upgrades, it’s being beamed to folks in stages. So some of you may have to wait a bit before you get it OTA (over the air). One of the best things about the update is flex storage.
With Marshmallow aboard, you can ‘adopt’ your SD card as internal memory in order to be able to store different kinds of data on it, as opposed to just media files. This can be done by going to Storage & USB from the Settings icon. Remember to back up the contents of your external memory card since formatting it to make it part of the internal space will delete the data on it.
Quick look at the Lenovo A7000 specifications:
– 5.5-inch 720p IPS LCD screen
– 1.5GHz octa core MediaTek MT6752m processor
– Update to Android Marshmallow available (as of April 2016)
– 2GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, 32GB expandability
– 8MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing lens
– 2900mAh battery
– 152.6 x 76.2 x 8mm dimensions, 140gm weight
In case you suspect that you should have received the Marshmallow update already, you can check for it on your Lenovo phone through the Settings menu. Free up at least 2GB of space before downloading it.
