Previously the company has launched the Lava Z60. You can read about it below.
Latest Lava Z60 Makes a Debut in India
Indian smartphone manufacturer Lava has launched a new smartphone in the Indian market, called the Lava Z60. The new Lava Z60 has a price tag of Rs. 6499 and will be available for purchase both from retail stores as well as online.
The Lava Z60 comes in Gold color with a white front panel and is also available in black color.
Key Features for Lava Z60
- The smartphone runs on the latest Android Nougat 7.1 Os along with the Star OS 4.1 (custom skin from Lava).
- There is a software option to add bokeh effect to the images.
- The Z60 comes with a 5 Megapixel rear and a 5 Mega Pixel front Selfie camera.
Lava Z60 Specs and Details
The Lava Z60 looks a lot like the Xiaomi Redmi 4A and has a 5.0 Inch display. The device comes with an FWVGA (854*480) pixels resolution with 197 PPi.
The mobile offers a 5 Megapixel rear camera and a 5 Megapixel front selfie camera which comes with a Bokeh mode which is more of software feature unlike the Bokeh mode on Dual camera smartphones.
There is dedicated flash present at the rear as well as the front side. Additionally, the bokeh mode works for selfies as well.
The Lava Z60 has an unknown 1.1 GHz clocked Quad Core processor and came with 1 GB of Ram. The smartphone has 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded using the Micro-sd card slot.
The Z60 has dual sim support and also has 4G VOLTE capability to work with the JIO or other operator sim card. Additionally, the phone comes with 2500 mAH capacity battery which is sufficient to make it work all day.
Lastly, the Z60 has 9.1 mm of thickness and weighs 149 grams. At Rs. 6499 the Lava Z60 don’t look exciting as a lot of phones in this price range offer HD display and has 2 GB of Ram.
Lava has earlier launched the Lava Z25 and Lava Z10 in the Indian market. The Lava Z25 has a price tag of Rs. 18,000 and the Z10 is available for Rs. 11,499.
Lava Z60 Major Cons, Should You Buy it?
Lava has been pricing the smartphones a little higher compared to the competition – Xolo, Xiaomi, Micromax, and Spice.
The Lava Z60 also lacks some essential specs and features which are present in the phones like the Xiaomi Redmi 4A.
Most other phones come with a 13 Megapixel rear camera or 8 MP camera in this range; the Lava Z60 only has a 5 MP camera.
Also, The Z60 comes with just 1 GB Ram which is less compared to 2 GB Ram in most phones in the 6K price range.
Overall, I think it is a mediocre offering which will do well in the retail stores, but it is difficult to become a best seller in the online market.
Lava has launched 2 new smartphones in the hyper-competitive 10K to 20K price range.
Lava Z25 and Z10 are all set to compete with the Chinese offerings in the market. They’re officially priced at Rs 18,000 and Rs 11,500 respectively.
The phones will come with a basic 1.5 years warranty for the users. The company is also promising a 30 Day Replacement Policy.
Lava Z25 Priced at Rs 18000
Coming to the phones, the more premium Z 25 sports a metal uni-body with diamond cut chamfers. Although, the back seems to be a complete rip off of the Redmi Note 3.
There’s also around fingerprint sensor below the camera sensor. Lava claims it can easily unlock under 0.16s, which is indeed is 20% faster than other flagships out there. It’ll also use their fingerprint to unlock the apps.
It flaunts a 5.5-inch FHD IPS LCD display up front. There’s a 2.5D curved glass enhancing the front look, Lava also claims that it can give up to 500 nits of brightness. It’s driven by a 64-bit 1.5 GHz Octa-core MediaTek chipset.
The processor is coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. It can be expended up to 128 GB through micro SD cards.
There’s a 13 MP Sony IMX 258 sensor at the back with LED flash, PDAF, f/2.0 aperture and 5-layer Largan lens. At the front there’s an 8 MP selfie shooter with spotlight flash and the same f/2.0 aperture and 5-Layer Largan lens.
Powering the Z25 is rather underwhelming 3020 mAh battery.
The Z25 ships with Android Marshmallow v6.0.1 with Star OS v3.3 skin on top.
Lava Z10 Priced at Rs 11500
The cheaper variant Z10 is a different offering altogether. It flaunts a rather smaller 5 inch HD IPS LCD display with an oleophobic coating as well.
It runs on a 64-bit 1.3 GHz octa-core MediaTek SOC with 2 GB of RAM.
There’s 16 GB of internal storage with storage expansion option as well like its sibling. Thr Z10 features 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, 5-layer Largen lens.
While the front features 5 MP selfie shooter with f/2.2 aperture and 4-layer Largan lens.
The phone is powered by 2650 mAh battery pack. It ships with Android v6.0 Marshmallow with Star OS v3.3 skin on top.
Both the smartphones come with ‘Power Saver mode’ and ‘Super Power Saver mode’ for longer battery life out of it.
Interestingly, both the phones have focused on optics and also come with “Bokeh” and “Night Pro” modes as well.
At least the Z25 is all equipped with optics to compete with the likes of Moto G5 Plus, Asus Zenfone 3S Max, which comes with 5000 mAH capacity battery and the Dual Rear camera Honor 6X.
It’ll be available from March 23rd, in Champagne Gold and Grey color variants. Whereas the Z10 is available only in Gold color option.
