Among the other specifications, it has 5MP fixed focus rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, FM radio, 3G support, microSD card support for storage expansion, and usual connectivity options.

“Out of the 876 million mobile phone users in India1, about 10% of the users own a smartphone. However, today there is an influx of devices specifically targeted at this untapped segment in fast-growing markets like India. With the Lenovo A series range, we are looking at revolutionizing the concept of budget phones in India by offering consumers a superior smartphone experience at an affordable price point,” said Sudhin Mathur, Director-Smartphones, Lenovo India.

The overall specifications of the phone are decent but we are disappointed at the presence of Android 4.2 and just 854x480p display resolution. If not 720p HD, Lenovo could have put in a qHD display for this pricing.
