The Chinese semiconductor company Unisoc introduced a new smartphone today, called Lenovo A7. The device is yet to appear on any official website, but some specs were posted on the Twitter page of the chip maker.
The Lenovo A7 is obviously an entry-level handset with a waterdrop screen, two cameras and an octa-core CPU.

The chipset is Unisoc SC9863A which has eight Cortex-A55 units - one cluster reaches 1.6 GHz, the rest go up to 1.2 GHz. It can support resolutions up to Full HD+ (2160 x 1080), but the Lenovo A7 is likely settling for a 720p display. All we know is the panel is 6.09” with a waterdrop cutout for the 5 MP selfie camera.
In other specs, the battery is 4,000 mAh and is removable - a proper rarity these days. The panel comes off, it still stays with a fingerprint scanner and two cutouts for the 13 MP + 2 MP dual camera and a single LED flash. We are yet to learn more about this device, including availability or markets, but it is highly unlikely to be more than $100.
