Meet the Lenovo A706!

Lenovo Mobile Philippines launched a bunch of new smartphones for the local market last night. One of the them is the Lenovo A706 which touts a powerful quad-core processor using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset. It comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box and we can expect a smooth experience with it considering it has 1GB RAM and a 4.5-inch display with 854 x 480 resolution. Complete spec rundown in the post below.

Lenovo A706 Spec Sheet

  • 1.2GHz Quad-core Processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 Chipset
  • Adreno 200 GPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Storage, expandable up to 32GB via microSD Card
  • 4.5-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen, 854×480 resolution
  • 5.0-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto focus
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • WiFi, WiFi Hotspot, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS with A GPS Support
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 2,000mAh Battery

As you can see the internals are very competitive with the only downer being the 5-megapixel shooter and absence of LED flash. Hopefully though that should considerably bring down the price. We’re actually hoping that this turns out to be the most affordable quad-core smartphone but unforunately they didn’t say how much the device will sell for when it hits in the Philippines in May.

PS: We’re working on getting review units as well as having Lenovo Mobile PH to guest on the podcast. :D
