4G seems to be the next big thing to hit the telecom markets. We have had screens, batteries as well as the build and construction materials as the major differentiators, and looks like despite there being barely any 4G LTE connectivity even in metros in India, 4G is set to become a major differentiator in the market. And since bringing devices at an affordable price is already an ongoing war, combining 4G LTE with low cost in a handset seems to be an intelligent trick. We have seen the likes of RedMi Note from Xiaomi as well as the Yu Yureka device launched with LTE at affordable prices. Lenovo is set to challenge both of them with a device that is set to cost less than both the aforementioned devices.
According to BGR India, Lenovo has confirmed its plans of a Snapdragon powered device, which will be showcased at CES and then released in India a week later. The quote reads, “Lenovo to launch a Snapdragon based 410 LTE device to India with an aggressive price point. The device will be launched in India soon after it is showcased at CES 2015.”
No clear indication of the specifications or pricing of the device have been given yet, but the report on BGR says that the phone will be launched at a price closer to the RedMi 1S which is around the Rs 7,000 mark. If the report is indeed true and Lenovo does make a device available at the 7K mark with LTE, it would open a very interesting segment in the market.
