The company announced that 10,000 Lenovo A6000 phones were up for sale. Notably, Lenovo earlier had not revealed the total number of units going on sale on Wednesday via Flipkart. The company announced the news via its official Lenovo India Twitter account.
Lenovo also confirmed that the registrations for the second sale of the Lenovo A6000 will begin on Wednesday at 6pm IST.
With just 10,000 units up for grabs, the Lenovo A6000 was clearly in heavy demand and saw some steep reactions from consumers on social platforms. Lenovo after its sale faced mixed reactions on Twitter.
One of the users even compared the Lenovo's sales model to Xiaomi.
To refresh, Lenovo's pricing for the Lenovo A6000 significantly undercuts the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G - which sells at Rs. 9,999 - and Micromax's Yu Yureka - which is priced at Rs. 8,999. The smartphone arguably however, is not as well-endowed as its rivals' counterparts, and may just be positioned to take on Xiaomi's recently unveiled Redmi 2 smartphone.
The Lenovo A6000 is compatible with the Band 3 and Band 40 (TDD-LTE) 4G networks used in India. It features a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) IPS display, which is smaller than the 5.5-inch display on both Micromax's Yu Yureka and Xiaomi's Redmi Note 4G. The dual-SIM smartphone supports Micro-SIM cards.
The A6000 is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) SoC clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM. The Android 4.4 KitKat-based smartphone runs Lenovo's Vibe UI 2.0 skin on top, and bears 8GB of built-in storage with expandability via microSD card (up to 32GB). An Android 5.0 Lollipop update has been promised, but no time-frame announced.
Other specifications include an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash; a 2-megapixel front camera; apart from a 2300mAh battery rated to deliver up to 13 hours of talk time and up to 264 hours of standby time on 3G networks. The Lenovo A6000 measures 141x70x8.2mm and weighs 128 grams.
