Lenovo at Mobile World Congress 2015, Barcelona, introduced its A7000 smartphone, Vibe Shot 2-in1 camera smartphone and Pocket Projector.

The latest from Lenovo is the A7000, an improvement on the A6000. With a price tag of $169 this smartphone has a 5.5inch screen. It will also bring the stunning Dolby Atmos technology to a phone for the first time. A big difference in comparison to the A6000 smartphone is the fact that this phone is powered by a MediaTek processor and not Qualcomm. We expect the phone to come to India soon since A6000 was launched in India a week after its global debut.
