Lenovo announced the A6000 at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, which was specially introduced for the Indian market to be sold exclusively on Flipkart. As expected, the company launched the Lenovo A6000 4G LTE enabled smartphone today in India priced at just Rs 6,999. Registrations begin today at 6pm.
Lenovo already specifically mentioned it will price the A6000 below the recently launched YU Yureka and Redmi Note 4G, which are available for Rs 8,999 and Rs 9,999 respectively. We mentioned in our report it will be priced between Rs 7000-8000 and we were right. The most affordable 4G LTE smartphone tag now belongs to the Lenovo A6000 which has been priced at Rs 6,999. It will be exclusively sold on Flipkart and that too via the likely ‘Flash Sale’ model. It was first implemented by Xiaomi, then followed by YU Yureka on Amazon.
Lenovo too will sell the A6000 via flash sale on January 28 and you need to register for the sale which starts today (January 16) at 6pm. The company is most likely testing the demand for its newly launched smartphone and will bring in the required number of units accordingly. This model is also a testimony to create artificial demand and hype around a product. So let us see how many people register to buy the new Lenovo smartphone in the Indian market.
