Lava has launched a new entry-level smartphone called Lava P7 priced at just Rs. 5,499. With the increasing competition in the budget category, the company’s are now offering their smartphone with mush better specifications with aggressive pricing. The device runs on Android 5.1 Lolipop with almost stock UI and the company also promised to release the Marshmallow update in the near future.
The device features a 5-inch display with FWVGA (854 x 480) resolution and Gorilla Glass protection. Under the hood is the MediaTek Quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz along with 1GB of RAM. It has 8GB of built-in storage that can be further expandable upto a maximum of 32GB. It is backed by a 2,000mAh that may not be sufficient for heavy users.
It supports dual SIM dual standby but lacks the 4G LTE connectivity which is least expected in this new year. Talking about the camera, it has a 5MP rear camera with autofocus and an LED flash and interestingly the 2MP front camera is also accompanied with an LED flash. Connectivity on this device includes 3G HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/A-GPS and a MicroUSB 2.0 port.
It will be available in the White, Blue and Gold color options and can be purchased through online and offline stores across the country. When compared with Coolpad Note 3 Lite priced slightly higher at Rs. 6,999, the Lava P7 comes nowhere near to it. The Note 3 Lite sports a fingerprint sensor and is the most affordable device with a not only fingerprint sensor but also equipped 3GB of RAM.
Normally we don’t see these kind specs at this price range; the Note 3 Lite is the successor for the Coolpad Note 3 which was the most affordable device to feature 3GB of RAM at that time. Recently LeEco (a.k.a LeTV) had launched the Le 1s Superphone with 3GB of RAM, Fingerprint sensor and all metal body priced at just Rs. 10,990. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is also expected to launch in India in the next few weeks.
