20,000 Lenovo A6000 phones sold in 3 seconds

05 February, 2015

Lenovo conducted its second flash sale of the A6000 and it was as an unmitigated success. The affordable LTE-enabled smartphone went up for sale of Flipkart in India and 20,000 units were snatched in a matter of three seconds.

This is becoming a norm for this particular handset as last Wednesday (January 28) the initial flash sale event saw 10,000 phone sales in just two seconds. The particular sales model seem to be so effective that Lenovo has already announced its intention to have a third round on February 11.

Willing customers, who have missed the narrow window to get their hands on the A6000 need to register for the shopping frenzy. The manufacturer did not reveal how many units will be going on sale next week, but judging from the avalanche of sales the number of available units should be ramped-up even higher.

The Lenovo A6000 is a decent mid-range offer, built-around a 64-bit capable Snapdragon 410 chipset with four Cortex-A53 cores, clocked at 1.2 GHz. It comes equipped with 1GB pf RAM and 8GB internal memory and boasts a 5.0-inch 720p IPS screen.

Cameras are an 8MP main shooter and 2MP front one. The device is dual-SIM supporting and comes with Dual-Mode LTE (TD-LTE Band 40 and FD-LTE Band 20), WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Lenovo's own Vibe UI 2.0 on top.

The Lenovo A6000 currently retails for INR 6,999 or about $113. This is an awesome deal for an LTE device and it's no wonder the handset is taking the developing India market by storm. The push continues to deliver high-tech current technology on a budget to this new emerging huge market and Lenovo is definitely on the right track along with ambitious undertakings such as Android One.
