Lenovo A706 hardware details

If we want a powerful smartphone, we might have to dig deep down in our pockets. Or maybe not. We’ve been used to seeing how the mobile phone market pretty much runs by the principle “what’s good is expensive”, but Lenovo has other things on its mind. No, we aren’t talking about their notebooks, but about the smartphones they have to offer and even though they might be seen as newbies in this area, they know what they are doing.These guys thought: let’s make a good and affordable smartphone featuring a quad core processor. So they did and we thank them for that. The Lenovo A706 smartphone is their proposal and with a Rs. 15,949 price, you won’t want to miss it when it hits the stores.The quad core power, running on Android Jelly Bean 4.1, makes it run faster and smoother when multitasking, offering a better performance all-around. Lenovo A706 features a 1 GHz quad core Snapdragon 200 MSM8225Q processor and 1GB RAM which makes the device decidedly fast.
It’s smaller in size than previous Lenovo smartphone releases, with a 4.5-inch display and a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels.  Still, don’t be discouraged by the display size, because it compensates with 16 M colors, enhancing the experience of playing games or watching movies. Also, while the internal memory is only of 4GB, you can increase it with the usage of microSD cards. The 5.3 MP rear camera and the 0.3 front camera are quite standard, although adding various shooting options, like continuous and flash shooting are very welcome.
 Lenovo A706 has a 2000 mAh Li–Ion battery and users can rejoice, since it has 22 hours talk time and 550 hours standby time, which is encouraging. Sadly, push mail messages are unavailable, MMS and email being the only options. As for the connectivity, it includes USB 2.0, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and Wi-Fi Hotspot. Dual SIM is available as well, if you can’t help but use two phone numbers. QWERTY keypad is available, making typing faster and it operates on a dual-band GSM 900/ 1800 MHz frequency.
Because Lenovo A706 is more entertainment-oriented, you will be happy to hear that you can experience the audio through Dolby Digital Plus, offering a surround sound quality of the highest caliberand a powerful speaker, rendering crystal-clear sound.While the release date in India is still unknown, it’s anticipated to be in stores soon, since there are already various websites listing its price and the specifications are available in full. For a mid-range smartphone, the Lenovo A706 does make quite an impression and, once again, we receive further proof that when people underestimate companies like Lenovo, which despite being new in this, do have a great deal of overall technology experience, they prove them wrong each and every time.In India’s busy telecom market, there are clear winners and frontrunners, but among Samsung, Nokia and HTC, there is a place available for Lenovo as well and it should be to no surprise if the A706 will run out of stock soon after its release. LenovoA706 price in India is around Rs 15,000.
