“The A7000’s first batch was snapped up within a matter of seconds”
After selling more than 3,00,000 units of its budget 4G LTE smartphone, the A6000 (camera review | first impressions), Lenovo recently launched its successor, the A7000 in India. Today, the company held the first flash sale of the Lenovo A7000 in the country on Flipkart, which as expected, was over within a matter of seconds, four seconds to be precise. 30,000 units of the affordable 4G LTE-enabled phone were up for grabs in the first flash sale.
Originally unveiled at this year’s MWC, the Lenovo A7000 (first impressions) is the world’s first smartphone to offer Dolby ATMOS sound. Priced at Rs 8,999, the device offers Android Lollipop, a 5.5-inch HD display, a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable memory, 8MP/5MP cameras, dual-SIM slots, and a 2,900mAh battery.
The Lenovo A7000 competes against the likes of the YU Yureka (review), Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G (review) and the Honor 4X (review) which all support India’s 4G LTE networks and are priced below Rs 10,000. The second flash sale of the A7000 will take place on April 22nd.
