Lenovo has just announced four new smartphones in the A series, with the four Android devices having a wide range in the pricing and thus the features too are based on the same lines. The Lenovo A850 was the best of all with the large screen and the quad-core processor, but when you are looking for something cheaper than this, the Lenovo A516 can be a good choice with the 4.5-inch capacitive touchscreen and some decent specs to support it and to justify the pricing at which Lenovo is planning to sell it.
The A516 from Lenovo has got an IPS display with the wide viewing angle of 178-degree, while the screen resolution is 480 x 854 pixels. The processor included in the device is a Dual-core one, clocking at 1.3 GHz speed, but the RAM is not that great with the 512MB of RAM included, contrary to the 1GB RAM included in the A850 device. The device runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS and most of the other features are similar to what you see in the A850, with the dual cameras, a 5-megapixel rear camera with auto focus and a 0.3-megapixel VGA camera on the front. But the difference here is that you won’t be seeing the LED flash support in the A516.
Lenovo has included a good 2000 mAh battery in the device, and the connectivity options that are included in the device, include the 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS. The device is 9.9mm thick, and is quite similar in terms of design, to the A850 except that the speaker grill is moved to the bottom right on the back panel in the A516.
Priced at Rs. 10999 in the Indian market, the Lenovo A516 is available in two color options – Charcoal Grey and White. There is 4GB of internal storage provided in the device while that can be expanded to 32GB with the MicroSD card support. Check below for the specifications of the Lenovo A516 smartphone.
