It’s quite usual for OEMs to give different names to the same models when they launch it in other countries. What is not usual is for that to happen almost half a year after the original was launched. And although Lenovo has not said that they’re basically the same model, the fact that the K3 Note and the newly-launched in India A7000 Turbo share the same specs may be confusing for some. Or maybe it doesn’t matter at all as it is being marketed as a “new” device.
Maybe the decision to name it A7000 Turbo is due to the fact that it looks more like the Lenovo A7000 than the K3 Note, at least physically. But specs-wise, it is similar to the latter, but only more expensive. It is being marketed as a device that can give you “superior performance and fast data speeds with 4G”, hence the name Turbo. It has a 5.5” 1080p full HD display and immersive audio experience because it does have Dolby Atmos with it. It runs on an 8 ARM Cortex A-53 processors but with just 2GB DDR3 RAM. Its internal storage is just 16GB and expandable up to 32GB through a microSD card.
Similar to a lot of mid-range devices like this, it has a 13MP main camera and a 5MP front facing one, but with dual LED flash and the “beautification” feature to make your photos, well, more beautiful. Battery-wise, it has a decent 2900mAh and connectivity wise, you have 4G and support for dual SIM. These features seem workable for an emerging market like India.
You can buy the Lenovo A7000 Turbo from their online shop for Rs. 10,999 or around $164. Shipping begins by January 13.
