Lava International is still taking the fight to the Chinese rivals with new offerings. The company has launched the new Lava Agni 5G to compete in the mid-range segment.
Notably, it is the first 5G smartphone from the Indian brand and is also made in India. The smartphone comes with a massive 6.78-inch Full-HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Also, the front side has a hole-punch design.
Powering the device is the new Octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 810 processor that we have also seen on the recently launched Poco M4 Pro 5G. The processor is based on a 6 Nm manufacturing process and comes with a max clock speed of 2.4 GHz and has ARM Mali-G57 GPU. Lava has launched the smartphone in a single variant with 8GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
The smartphone boots the latest Android 11 Os from Google. For Photography, the smartphone comes with a 64 MP primary lens with an f/1.79 aperture.
There are three more cameras - a 5 MP wide-angle, 2 MP depth sensor, and 2 MP macro shooter.
Barring the main 64 MP camera, other cameras are just marketing gimmicks and it would have been better to offer one more decent ultra-wide camera than to add 3 useless lenses.
The company has also added the AI Mode, Super Night, and a Pro Mode. Furthermore, it comes with Dual 5G support and also has the modern USB Type-C port.
Since the smartphone lacks an AMOLED panel and comes with an IPS LCD panel, Lava has integrated a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The phone has a massive 5,000mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging and can charge from 0-100 in 90 minutes.
The Lava Agni 5G will go on sale starting 18th November and will be available for purchase online as well as offline.
The company is offering a Rs. 2000 discount on early purchases reducing the price from Rs. 19,990 to Rs. 17,990.

The Z2s Max is ideal for watching videos and reading considering the large size, also the massive battery can easily last 1.5 days or even more. People looking for a large screen smartphone can opt for the Lava Z2s Max.
