Lava has launched a new budget smartphone in the Indian market under its Z-series. Dubbed as Lava Z91, the smartphone is priced at Rs. 9,999, which roughly converts to $154.
The company has revealed that the Lava Z91 will come with a 2-year warranty and one-time free screen replacement offer. Further, buyers of the smartphone can also avail cashback worth Rs. 2,000 from Airtel.
The phone comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ display with screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and a 2.5D curved glass on top. The phone features a full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio, in line with the current trend.
Under the hood, the budget smartphone is powered by a MediaTek MTK6739 processor along with 3GB RAM. It packs 32GB internal storage and comes with a microSD card slot, which enables users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity up to 128GB.
In the photography department, the smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and an LED flash. While it does not feature a dual-camera setup, it offers a Bokeh mode. On the front side, there’s an 8-megapixel camera with a f/2.2 aperture for taking selfies and video calling.
The phone comes with a fingerprint sensor, placed on the back panel. It also comes with a Face Unlock feature for added security. The fingerprint sensor on the device can also be used as a shortcut to open applications.
The device is running Android 7.1 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s Star OS custom user interface on top. The phone is powered by a 3,000mAh battery, which should be enough to last an entire day on a single charge.
Earlier this week, Lava launched its first Android Go edition smartphone — Lava Z50, which became the first Android Oreo (Go Edition) smartphone to go on sale in India. It is priced at Rs. 4,400 (approximately $68) in India and is available through offline as well as online stores.
