Lenovo launches four new A-series budget smartphones
Lenovo releases more A series Android smartphones, with the new dual-SIM Lenovo A269i, A369i, A516 and A850. Targeted for the students, these budget friendly phones are still equipped with solid features.
“…We are strengthening our smartphone footprint in the Philippines with the “value for money” A series smartphones to cater to the youth market who wants to be connected 24/7 and to the rest of the Philippine population who have yet to own a smartphone,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.
The new A series lineup are more usable and responsive because they are powered with dual and quad core processors that run on the latest Android OS, unlike other entry level smartphones. The new smartphones also come with an IPS screen that provides accurate color rendition and superb viewing angles.
The Lenovo A269i is the low-end of the A series lineup and is a very economical and practical smartphone. Despite being the most affordable unit in the lineup, the A269i is packed with dual SIM support, a 2 megapixel rear camera, 256MB RAM, 512MB internal storage, a microSD card bay, 3.5–inch HVGA screen display, and a 1GHz dual core CPU running on Android Gingerbread OS. The Lenovo A269i is available in black and is designed simply to get things done. Available by the end of October, this smartphone has a low, low Php 2,799 price-tag.
The Lenovo A369i is a great and inexpensive alternative to many feature phones. With the Jelly Bean OS and a 1.3GHz Dual-Core processor, this phone provides a smooth smartphone experience and can handle games as well. The slightly bigger 4” HVGA screen display allows for a better viewing experience…and it’s a dual-SIM phone too. This smartphone is available in two colors, black and white, to fit your personality. The A369i is now available for Php 4,499.
The Lenovo A516 comes in charcoal grey and is designed with elegant curved edges for improved ergonomics. The large and vibrant 4.5” IPS screen is not too small and not too big for one-handed operation and also comes with a higher resolution 5 megapixel rear camera. And according to the specs, battery life can possibly last 18 hours on 3G! And like the A369i, this comes packed with a 1.3GHz Dual-Core processor and Jelly Bean. The Lenovo A516 is now available at Php 5,999.
The Lenovo A850 is an affordable Android smartphone with a super-sized 5.5” IPS display screen, Jelly Bean OS, and a 1.3GHz quad core CPU that can handle more graphic intensive games better than the other A series phones that we mentioned and can handle higher resolution movies. It also comes with a 5mp rear camera and includes 1GB RAM with a 4GB internal memory divided evenly for apps and storage. The phone comes in black and white. The A850 will be accompanying the A269i by the end of October at Php 9,999.
