Indian smartphone manufacturer Lava has launched a new smartphone in the Indian market, called as 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 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 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.
The Z60 also 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.
