Lenovo A60 Android phone lands in the Philippines

Lenovo Mobile has just announced their very first phone (and an Android for that matter) in the country — a Gingerbread-touting, entry-level smartphone called the Lenovo A60.

This is the first time we’ve actually heard of Lenovo going into the mobile market in the Philippines.

Lenovo A60 specs:
3.5″ HVGA display @ 320×480 pixels
MT6573 ARM11 650MHz + MT6162 ARM9 400MHz
PowerVR SGX 531
256MB RAM
512MB ROM
220MB internal storage
up to 16GB via microSD
3G/HSDPA
WiFi 802.11 b/g, WiFi hotspot
Bluetooth w/ A2DP, EDR
GPS with aGPS support
3.2MP rear camera
0.3MP front-facing camera
FM radio tuner
Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread
Li-Ion 1500mAh battery

Oh wait — it’s dual-SIM too! Dual-standby, that is.

The suggested retail price is Php7,990. The specs doesn’t really inspire a lot of awe, especially that low-res screen. The specs aren’t verified so they might change as we dig for more info. Will get more details and update this once we get them.

    Why are there 2 processors, an ARM11 and an ARM9?

    • Maybe for handling each SIM functions?

      Maybe it can receive calls on each SIM at the same time?

    • it’s for supporting both WCDMA & GSM basebands

  2. dual processor?

  4. I was wondering about that too. Two CPU’s with different clockspeeds? Is that possible?

    I think it is possible. It’s the same case with the first gen archos tablet. for efficiency maybe, the smaller cpu will take the lighter activities. I think they can’t work simultaneously as a 1Ghz++ processor though.

    Specs of the phone is actually decent. with that price, it is in the same league of SE X8, Galaxy Mini, Nokia 500. This one got a dual-sim, so I guess its the best entry level android phone ATM.

  9. The price is OK, but it could’ve been a bit cheaper. It’s. actually cheaper here than if you purchase it from HOTMID.com or Merimobiles.

    • I just asked it from Lenovo themselves.

      Even if they dont ship it there are sites that says you can install it on your own

  12. WOW! another nice device.. exited to have one.. sooo affordable and yet its a yummy gingerbread :D

    The question is if the specs is enough to support flash. I doubt, because of it can, it would be the cheapest phone to offer full android experience. next would be SE xperia mini.
