Lava has launched its latest phone, Lava Blaze, in the Indian market. It comes at a price of Rs. 9,699 and comes with several introductory offers.
The local brand recently launched the Lava Z3 and it’s back with a phone in a similar price range.
The phone comes with a design that mimics phones from higher price segments. There’s a triple camera array on the back that some would say resembles an iPhone 13. And Lava claims this phone comes with a glass back. It would be a first in the segment. It comes in 4 different colors namely black, blue, green and red.
Lava Blaze: prices and availability
Lava Blaze is available on Flipkart (opens in new tab), lava website (opens in new tab) and retail stores, and costs Rs. 9,699. But it is now available for a starting price of Rs. 8,699. It will go on sale on July 14th.
There is also an additional pre-booking offer. The first 1,000 users who pre-order the phone will receive Lava Probuds 21 for free.
Lava Blaze: Key specs and features
Lava Blaze comes with a 6.51 inch HD+ LCD screen, comes with a waterdrop notch.
The handset is powered by the Mediatek Helio A22 chipset and comes in just a single variant of 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It also has the option to add 3GB of virtual RAM, like the Samsung RAM Plus option found in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M13 series.
Talking about the cameras, it comes with a triple camera setup with a 13MP main camera and two 2MP auxiliary cameras. On the front, there is an 8MP front camera.
It is backed by a 5,000mAh battery and 10W charger and comes with a Type-C charging port.
When it comes to software, Lava has opted for standard Android and comes with Android 12 out of the box.
What is interesting about this device is that it comes with a 100-day free screen replacement protection for free. And Lava is offering gateway service to your devices at no extra cost.
A good budget option?
Looking at the phone, it’s a decent budget option if you’re buying it at the introductory offer price. The pre-order offer is also nice to have. It’s also a good option if you want to go with an Indian brand. But there are better options like Infinix Hot 12 Play, Redmi 10, Realme Narzo 50i, Infinix Smart 6 or even Lava’s own Lava Z3.
