Aside from the camera-centric Vibe shot, Lenovo also announced a midrange smartphone in the Mobile World Congress – the A7000 smartphone. What makes this device different from other chunks in the market is the fact that it is the first handset to rock the Dolby Atmos surround sound technology.
What is Dolby Atmos Surround Sound?
The Chinese outfit partnered with the popular multimedia company to bring Dolby Atmos tech in your handsets. This will give you the feeling that the sound goes towards you from omni-directions while making the volume more consistent at the same time. Even regular headphones will make you perceive good sound quality when using the A7000.
Specs-wise, the device crosses the phablet territory with its 5.5-inch HD display. It runs on a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752m processor supported with 2 gigabytes of RAM and powered by Android Lollipop (v5.0).
There's also an 8-gigabyte of built-in memory, across the board; plus, you can add up to 32GB using a microSD card which is good considering that it is targeted to multimedia-rooting audience. Camera-wise, the device sports 8MP rear camera and 5MP selfie shooter.
The phone has dual micro SIM functionality and LTE connectivity on top of a complete set of radios.
The phone measures 152.6 x 76.2 x 7.99 mm and weighs 140 grams. Like the Vibe Shot, it has 2900mAh removable battery to power device. The phone will be available for a price of 169 USD (roughly Php7,500) and is expected to go on sale in March.
