Lenovo's A6000 is a new 64-bit Android smartphone that won't break the bank
Besides announcing the Vibe X2 Pro and P90 smartphones at CES 2015, Lenovo also unveiled the A6000, a less-advanced handset that wasn’t exactly the star of the company’s CES presence.

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.

You expect to see 1080p resolution in a device that costs $170?? Clearly you're a spoilt brat!

People these days never get satisfied. When a manufacturer design a phone that looks a bit like the iPhone, they say: "Cheap Chinese crap, copy iPhone copycat". When a manufacturer design a phone that doesn't even look like the iPhone, they say: "Reminds me of iPhones....Nah, this phone is to bland, just like the iPhone,,,, meh" blah blah blah. When a manufacturer make a phone that costs only $170 and comes with a 720p screen, they say: "720p? Nope". And again, people these days never get satisfied.

I was looking forward to this phone actually...i used Redmi 1S for 2 months and it actually was satisfying knowing i didn't pay much but got something worth more. The camera was great, battery was so-so and the UI wasn't that bad honestly. Then i heard of this Redmi 1S competition and was keen about it. Hope it does well. This is another phone with good price-specs ratio i'm looking forward to. And to those like Malcolm up there, "If you got nothin nice to say, shut it!"

relax mate, 720p phones are dime a dozen, I personally consider that old news. 1080p should be the norm from now (2015) on.

I am not spoilt! I have a GT-i19300 (Galaxy s3) and it has a pentile 720p screen which is dull and oversaturated. I have been using this thing for 2 and a half years now.

Uh...Lenovo is using IPS, AMOLED with Pentile is a different story.

I can see pixels on my screen :-/ while you guys with your 1080p screens enjoy awesome clarity.

720p on my Lumia 925 is just about right, but that's on a 4.7" screen. I'd only want (and enjoy) 1080p or above on a 7+" tab tbh though.

Why would you not just buy an Asus Zenfone 2 for a little bit more?

Curious to see how these cats handle Motorola and what happens to their design language. It's going to be tough to top designs, quality, and price from pre-Lenovo Motorola. I wish them well. If it doesn't pan out by time it's full on new Lenovo-designed and built, it's okay...Nokia will probably have an Android by time I'm ready for a new phone...
