The company will follow the online-only flash sale model and the device will go up for registrations on Flipkart at 6pm on Friday, and will go on sale at 2pm on January 28.

The handset offers an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash and has a 2-megapixel front camera.  The device is fueled by a 2300mAh battery rated to deliver up to 13 hours of talk time and up to 264 hours of standby time on 3G network. The Lenovo A6000 measures 141x70x8.2mm and weighs 128 grams.

It runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Lenovo's Vibe UI 2.0 skin on top, and bears 8GB of built-in storage with no word on expandability. The company has also promised an upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
