Lenovo’s lemon-clad A7000 smartphone is said to be landing in the country real soon, as per the announcement from the folks over at Lenovo Philippines. The device, first announced at the Mobile World Congress last month, proves to be a worthy bang-for-the-buck contender as it sports decent hardware at a price similar to those of other affordable devices. Here are five things you should know that can make you say it’s worth the wait:
1) Octa-core Mediatek processor and 2GB RAM, combined
An octa-core processor and 2GB of RAM can mean a lot of things. Given its affordable price point, the A7000 can prove itself to be worthy of handling multitasking and resource-intensive apps, which may get you thorough a day with a breeze.
2) A 5.5-inch HD screen
Its huge display is not worth underestimating. Clocked at a 1280×720 resolution thereby rendering 294ppi, images can be surely seen to be crisp and clear.
3) A huge 2900mAh battery capacity
Battery life is one of the common problem we face nowadays, and Lenovo added a 2900mAh battery on the A7000. The device is sure to last more than a day with this.
4) Dolby’s ATMOS Surround Sound System
Aside from a huge battery capacity, a unique feature the A7000 bears is the inclusion of the Dolby ATMOS surround sound system, an audio technology that allows up to 128 audio tracks plus associated pan metadata to be distributed for optimal, dynamic rendering to loudspeakers.
5) Everything is under a slim 8mm profile
And all of these features are housed inside a thin 8mm device. It’s amazing for Lenovo to achieve such feat, considering the huge battery capacity it bears.
