After announcing the Lenovo Vibe Shot, the company has also unveiled a budget-friendly smartphone, the Lenovo A7000. What sets this particularly affordable smartphone apart from its competition is the Dolby Atmos feature, a new surround sound technology for mobile. As it turns out, the Lenovo A7000 is the first smartphone to boast such a feature.
According to Lenovo, users will immediately notice the difference that Dolby Atmos brings by using a pair of headphones. Apparently, users will be able to hear sound “move” from all directions with good clarity, richness and depth. In short, Dobly Atmos supposedly brings a lot to the table when it comes to audio; that is, if you have your headphones on.
The Lenovo A7000 is quite a well-equipped smartphone as well, considering its rather affordable asking price. It has a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, a Mediatek “true” octa-core processor paired to 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage that is expandable, dual SIM support, a 2,900 mAh battery, and LTE connectivity. In the camera department, there is an 8MP rear camera with dual LED flash and a 5MP front-facing shooter.
Surprisingly, the Lenovo A7000 will be available as early as this month. It will retail at US$170 (approximately RM615). The A7000 seems like a very promising smartphone, but will the Dolby Atmos feature truly make a difference in terms of audio quality?
