MT6752m powered Lenovo A7000 debuts in India for $144/9,000 INR


The new 64-bit MT67xx series of SoCs from MediaTek have impressed one and all… and with every passing week, component costs and overall device costs powered by these SoCs are going down.

What’s interesting is, the same MT6752 processors (and variants thereof) can be found powering phones as expensive as the Gionee Elife S7… and as affordable as the newly launched Lenovo A7000. The latter went live in the Indian market earlier today for an impressive 8,999 INR or roughly US$144 to compete against the likes of the Cyanogen OS powered Yu Yureka.

Gizchina News of the week


The A7000 succeeds the fairly popular A6000, and comes with 2GB RAM, 8GB on-board ROM, 5.5-inch 1280 x 720p display, 2900mAh battery and 8 mega-pixel / 5 mega-pixel cameras.

At Lenovo we are committed to providing cutting edge technology to our consumers. The A7000 brings in flagship worthy features and performance at an incredible price making it a perfect choice for consumers looking for a trendy and powerful phone loaded with future-proof features,Sudhin Mathur, Director (smartphones), Lenovo India

The phone comes with 4G LTE thanks to the MediaTek SoC of choice, and will be available via online reseller Flipkart in a flash sale model, similar to the one adopted by Xiaomi.

    720p display with 2900 mh battery, wonder about the battery life, must be very good.

    Seriously, flash sales?
    It almost feels like that the company wants retailers to get a good number of handsets during flash sales and sell them at a higher price.

    That design almost put me to sleep, can they get any duller? I thought Lenovo was trying to get away from the carbon copy “looks like every other phone” designs?

    As for the phone it is average at best. Other than the 6752 nothing stands out, those are all specs you will find on every other mid range phone.

    It’s a perfect smartphone, with perfect specifications by Lenovo. The Lenovo A7000 features a 5.5 inches display that provides a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The design of this phone is somewhat similar to its predecessor Lenovo A6000. The phone is powered by an Octa-core processor and a 2GB RAM. Which give no lagging experience to the user, even while playing heavy games. The 8GB of internal memory is currently sufficient for the device, which can further be expandable up-to 32 GB. The phone comes with a battery life of 2900 mAh that promises a talk-time of up-to 16 hours on 3G network. It is a best smartphone for the users searching for a pure value for money smartphone.
