The A6000 seems to be the international version of Lenovo’s K3 Music Lemon, an ultra-cheap smartphone that was launched last month in China. When hearing “ultra-cheap”, you’re probably thinking that the A6000 offers ultra-low-end features, but that’s not really the case.
The new handset comes with a 5-inch 720p display, LTE, and dual SIM capabilities. It’s got dual speakers, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash. 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage, and Android 4.4 KitKat are also included. An update to Android 5.0 Lollipop may be in the cards, especially since the A6000 is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor.
The A6000 measures 141 x 70 x 8.2 mm, weighs 128 grams, and has a 2300 mAh battery which can be replaced (just like the handset's colorful back plates). Lenovo will launch the new smartphone in India before the end of this month, for less than $170. The handset will likely be released shortly in other markets, though for now there are no official details about this.
