Lava, the renowned Indian smartphone manufacturer, initially introduced the Lava Blaze 2 4G in April, and now, as promised, they have unveiled the upgraded 5G version in an exclusive online event for the Indian market. The Lava Blaze 2 5G is powered by the robust Dimensity 6020 SoC and is available in two configurations: 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB, featuring UFS 2.2 storage that can be expanded by up to 1TB using a microSD card, with the convenience of a dedicated microSD card slot.
The Lava Blaze 2 5G arrives with a pristine, ad-free, and bloatware-free Android 13 out of the box, promising two years of quarterly security updates and an upgrade to Android 14. Additionally, it boasts an innovative anonymous and auto-call recording feature, enhancing user convenience.
The smartphone boasts a 6.56-inch HD+ display with a fast 90Hz refresh rate, a 180Hz touch sampling rate, and a peak brightness of 450 nits. The screen includes a centered punch-hole for the 8MP selfie camera.
On the back, the Blaze 2 5G features a glass panel housing a circular island containing two cameras – a 50MP primary camera and a VGA camera. Notably, this island also houses an LED flash and an exceptional circular Ring Light, a standout feature of this device. The Ring Light blinks in blue to offer notifications for apps, incoming calls, and battery charging status. Its brightness is adjustable, though the color remains constant.
Powering the device is a substantial 5,000mAh battery, which can be charged via the USB-C port at up to 18W. Additional features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM 5G support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Hi-Res Audio support for the speaker.
The Lava Blaze 2 5G is available in three appealing colors – Glass Lavender, Glass Black, and Glass Blue. The 4GB/64GB model is attractively priced at INR 9,999 ($120/€113), while the 6GB/128GB version comes at INR 10,999 ($132/€125). Sales are scheduled to commence on November 9 in India through Lava’s official website, their retail network, and Amazon.in.
As an added bonus, Lava is offering Free Home Service to its customers, ensuring that smartphone users won’t need to visit service centers. This service will be provided at the customer’s doorstep, free of charge, as long as the product is within the warranty period.
