Chinese mobile manufacturer, Lenovo has plans to sell a super affordable smartphone in the Chinese market. Yes we know Lenovo now owns Motorola mobility, and it has made a neat profit by selling cheap yet good smartphones like Moto E. But Lenovo is about to take this price insanity to next level with launch of a $60 smartphone soon in China.
This soon to be launched $60 smartphone is Lenovo A1900 and it comes with a quad-core CPU on board! The Lenovo A1900 is powered by a Spreadtrum SC7730 chipset with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and Mali-400 GPU. So price wise A1900 may seem like an entry level smartphone but it has fairly good specs to boast of.
The quad-core CPU is coupled with a modest 512 GB of RAM and 4 GB of on board storage. This affordable smartphone also has a microSD card slot, using which you can expand the memory.
It features a 4-inch IPS display with 480×800 pixel resolution, which boils down to pixel density of 233 ppi. At this price point this is certainly a too good deal! The Lenovo A1900 comes with dual-SIM, dual-standby feature. One of the SIM slot supports triple band 2G networks, and the second one supports 3G connectivity over 2,100 MHz band.
Its dimensions are 121 x 62 x 9.5mm and weighs 117g, which makes it compact and easy to carry around. Another good thing is, it comes with a user removable 1,500 mAh battery. With a smaller 4-inch display we feel 1,500 mAh can easily sail you through full day of mixed usage.
It will be launched across Chinese retailers in couple of weeks and may even cross over to India. But its low end specs and dual-SIM feature doesn’t make it suitable for European and U.S. markets.
