Although quite an old brand, Lenovo has starting making its mark in the Smartphone segment with its recent launch of the Lenovo ‘A’ series phones. Its massive popularity and almost magical sales online has led to an increased interest in its upcoming launch- the Lenovo A5000.
The A5000 can be preordered at the Lenovo store named ‘TheDoStore’ with shipping expected to start from 30th April. The USP of the Smartphone is undoubtedly its massive battery capacity of 4000mAh. With the company claiming that the phone can last for 33.5 days on standby and is capable of 35 hours of talktime, prospective users who long for a strong battery are in for a treat.
The phone which was first launched in Russia a few days back, is priced at Rs.9,999/-. As mentioned previously, its main selling point will be its battery, which enables a talk time of 17 hours on 3G network. The Quick Charge feature of the phone allows the battery to be completely recharged in 3 hours. For a quick 15 minute recharge, the user can get up to 4 hours of talktime.
The dual SIM phone runs on the Android KitKat. It sports a 5″ HD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels and a pixel density of 300ppi. For an added measure of durability, it has rain and splash proof screen protection.
