The latest phablet from top Chinese smartphone maker, the 5.5 incher Lenovo K900 comes for Rs 33K. It will certainly beat Samsung Galaxy Note 3 when it comes to the market
It is the second biggest smartphone manufacturer in the biggest smartphone market in the world. It is also the biggest PC maker in the whole world. So when such a company enters a market with a promise to take over the market no one should laugh at it. And to be true, the company launches a series of handsets that simply look irresistible and at unbeatable prices.
Yes, Lenovo, is arriving to the Indian smartphone market with great handsets that will certainly give them a toehold in the market without much of a problem. The market is on a move and a big smartphone maker like Lenovo is certainly going to thrive in the market. It has launched six handsets in one go and analysts believe that the Chinese company with a good network across the country besides great service infrastructure may get a head start. If Indian Smartphone vendors can do so well in recent years without not so great products, why not Lenovo that has a great history behind it?
To be true, for me it is very welcome to see Lenovo handsets land in the country. I am more amazed because of the fact that despite having infrastructural presence in almost every part of the country, the Chinese tech giant delayed its launch till now. But I think that company was not very enthusiastic about its entry in the smartphone market as the market was still in its infancy and it might have thought it waste of resources to invest hundreds of millions of dollars. But as the smartphone market is saturating in China and the fact that Indian smartphone market is growing at fast pace right now, this was the most opportune time to come here and get a market traction by offering great handsets at comparably lower price.
Now the best thing is that the giant is coming with half a dozen handsets in different price range. The least pricey of them comes for around Rs 8000 while the costliest comes at Rs 33000. So the company is looking forward to have something to offer to every group of people looking for different types of handset. So it has an entry level rather good handset, several mid range smart phones and then handset that comes with top specifications and features. Nonetheless, despite coming with so many products and at prices that look affordable compared to Samsung and HTC handsets, the Chinese company will have to work really hard to attract people to its handsets. There are many smartphone vendors here and so many handsets in all the categories that it is going to be a tough task for a new company to make an impact.
The best of them all is Lenovo K900 that is very competitive indeed. It is as good if not better than Korean tech giant Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and comes at least Rs 8000 cheaper than S4. The best handset that the company is launching in India is K900 that is priced at Rs 33000. And without doubt it comes with best specifications. The 5.5-inch 440+ ppi screen hides a 2.0GHz dual-core Intel processor and 2GB of RAM, with a 13MP camera (including a Sony Exmor lens) around the back. It’s all tied together with Android 4.2 inside a nice metal chassis. So it is very impressive without doubt. The highlight of P780 is high-capacity 4000 mAh battery while the A706 has the Dolby Digital Plus technology for better audio experience. Other handsets that are equally enticing for different segments and are priced very reasonably include P780. This handset is aimed at professionals and executives. P780 comes with 1.4 GHz quad core processor along with a 4000 mAh battery. Another equally good handset is S920 that comes with a massive 5.3-inch IPS display, 8 mega pixel camera and a 1.2GHz quad core processor. Other handsets too are great and may attract significant number of buyers.
