Lava has launched a new smartphone ‘Lava V2s‘ priced at Rs. 7,899 in India. It is the cut-down variant of the Lava Pixel V2 that was launched in September last year at a price of Rs. 10,750. While the Pixel V2 is currently retailing at Rs. 8,499 which makes it a better deal than the Lava V2s. Apart from few specifications, there are no other differences between both the devices. The Lava V2s runs comes with dual SIM support and offers 4G LTE.
The device sports a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) display and is powered by a 1GHz MediaTek MT6735 SoC quad-core processor. It has 2GB of RAM and is limited to 8GB of internal storage while the Pixel V2 came with 16GB of onboard storage. There is a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion upto 32GB. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with customization added over it.
Coming to the camera, it features an 8MP rear shooter with dual tone LED flash and the same 8MP sensor with single LED on the front for better selfies even in low light conditions. On the other hand, the Pixel V2 has a 13MP rear camera while the front camera remains same. It is backed by a 2,500mAh battery that might not last more than a day of mixed usage.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. The Lava V2 measures 141.6 x 70.8 x 8 mm and weighs 129 grams. It is available in Mirror Black and Icy White colors. The earlier mentioned Pixel V2 is launched as the successor for Lava Pixel V1 that was launched in partnership with Google’s Android One program.
Unlike the first set of Android One devices, the Pixel V2 offered some compatible specifications. It came with 5.5-inch HD display and included 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The only main features that went missing is the 4G LTE support, apart from that the device seems to be a better option than the other Android One devices.
