Lenovo A7000 Plus Price in the Philippines is Php 7,999 : Complete Specs, Release Date, Key Features

I've always thought that Lenovo A7000 - released in the Philippines last May 2015 - is one of the best smartphones under Php 8,000 that's available in the market currently. I mean, that handset has a great set of internal hardware, has a large and fairly crisp 5.5-inch HD display, and its dual cameras deliver clear and brilliant shots. From what I heard, that particular model is now a best-seller in the Philippines -- and understandably so.

But it's clear that Lenovo Mobile Philippines is far from being satisfied with the success of that initial release as they have just made an improved version of the Lenovo A7000 available locally.

Lenovo A7000 Plus looks 100% identical to the regular version - flaunting the same neat lines and no-non-sense design language - but it comes with several neat enhancements both obvious and under-the-hood that are sure to delight Pinoy consumers.

To be specific, the new smartphone sports a Full HD 5.5 inch IPS panel which is more crisp than the HD screen of the non-Plus variant, a higher resolution 13 MegaPixel main camera versus just 8 MP on the previous model, bigger internal storage at 16GB (vs. 8GB of ROM), and a slightly larger 3,000 mAh battery pack (vs. 2,900 mAh).

And on top of all that, A7000 Plus is powered by a 64-Bit Octa Core 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex A53 and Mali-T760MP2 GPU based MediaTek MT6752 chipset, which is more powerful - thanks to higher clockspeed - compared to the MT6752M SoC of the May 2015 release.

Of course, the upgraded handset still comes with all the unique features that we love about the A7000. You will get a more enjoyable music-listening sessions courtesy of Dolby Atmos sound boost and a more intuitive mobile experience c/o Lenovo Vibe UI's screen off gestures, ultra power saving mode, and secure zone management, among other innovative software tweaks.

Lenovo A7000 Plus is now available at Lazada Philippines for Php 7,999 -- which is just around Php 600 more than the price of Lenovo A7000 upon launch. If you're looking for a phablet with great imaging capabilities and stellar gaming performance, I recommend that you check out this upgraded version.
