New Lenovo phablet offers 64-bit octa core performance, Lollipop and more at Rs 8999

As expected, the Lenovo A7000 smartphone has been officially launched in India and like its predecessor, the device will be exclusively available through Flipkart. The new phone also carries a very attractive price of Rs 8999 and it certainly blows away the competition with its large roster of nifty features and specs.

The Lenovo A7000 is the successor to the A6000 which has earned itself a lot of fame over the past few months. Sadly, the new arrival has led the latter device to be discontinued which is disappointing considering that it has been around only for a little time. The latest option falls in the phablet category and could easily give Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4G and Yu’s Yureka a run for their money.

Not only is the Lenovo phablet really slim at just 7.9mm, it’s also one of the best looking phones in its range. Not only that, it’s loaded with great features. The main highlight of the device is its 5.5—inch 720p HD IPS display. And while it isn’t the first to offer a 64-bit processor, the octa core MediaTek chip used here is a beast with Mali 760 graphics.

If that’s not enough, the A7000 comes running Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box along with enhancements like the new Dolby Atmos technology for a surround sound experience. Then there’s a 5MP selfie camera on the front and an 8MP rear shooter with a dual-tone flash. Other features include dual SIM card slots, 4G LTE and a 2900mAh battery.
