Lenovo A680 Specifications, Quad Core Phone with 512 MB RAM Only

Lenovo A680 is an affordable quad core phone powered by MediaTek MT6582 SoC. But it’s not as powerful as you have expected it to be. The reason is nothing but 512 MB RAM. Normally these days we don’t often see 512 MB RAM in a smartphone but Lenovo decides to go for that to make A680 very much affordable. Possibly it’s using the MediaTek MT6582W SoC with quad core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 CPU but the GPU is clocked lesser than 500 MHz.

Lenovo A680 sports 5 inch TFT LCD Capacitive touch screen display with FWVGA 480×854 pixels resolution at 196 ppi. It has a 5 MP back camera and a VGA front camera. Connectivity module includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, micro USB port, GPS navigation. It’s a dual SIM phone with support for WCDMA 2100 MHz only which means it will not work outside China and India (except a few more countries).
