Yesterday Lenovo Philippines had officially announced the local availability of the Android 5.0 Lollipop-powered A7000 smartphone via Lazada PH. The smartphone is first in the ASEAN region and in the world to sport a Dolby ATMOS Surround Sound system, there is no other device on the market that is equipped with this audio-related feature... yet, only the Lenovo A7000 device.
Like the other most awaited and affordable Alcatel Flash Plus smartphone, this Lenovo A7000 will be a Lazada PH-exclusive smart device. That means that this particular smartphone will be released in the country, however it is nowhere else can be bought but from the PH's largest and leading online store Lazada. When? According to the announcement, the device will be available starting on May 21, 2015 with a suggested retail price of Php7,390.
Lenovo is one of those international tech companies that have partnered with Lazada joining Xiaomi, Meizu, Alcatel and many others and this is what they have to say about this collaboration...
“Due to the rapid growth of mobile internet, e-commerce and interactive marketing, we anticipate a significant change in the traditional technology business model. Lenovo as a market leader needs to adapt fast to remain innovative and to seize opportunities to be ahead of the game. The partnership with Lazada has allowed us to take that step forward to meet our common goal,” - said Dillon Ye, Rest of World Sales Lead, Lenovo Mobile Business Group.
One of the highlights and selling points of the A7000 is the inclusion of a Dolby ATMOS surround sound system embedded in the center of the device to provide the most realistic and clear audio experience. I love music and watching movies especially on the go, and if you are like me you can understand how excited I am to try this new Dolby ATMOS technology on a smartphone and see how well it will perform when it comes to giving nothing but the best listening experience.
