Last month, Lava revealed the Blaze 5G handset at the India Mobile Congress. The announcement makes the device the country’s most affordable 5G smartphone. The brand has confirmed to bring the smartphone for sale starting in early November.
The major highlight of this new smartphone from an Indian brand includes a MediaTek Dimensity 5G chipset. The display comes with a high-refresh-rate panel and a water-drop notch to accommodate a selfie camera.
The back of the smartphone features a triple rear camera setup and a glass back design which is quite rare for a given price point. Let’s look at the full specifications, features, pricing, and availability of the Lava Blaze 5G.
Lava Blaze 5G Specifications
A 6.5-inches HD display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels covers the front of the Blaze 5G handset. The display features 2.5D curved glass and comes with an aspect ratio of 20:9. The screen supports a high refresh rate of 90Hz for a smooth UI experience. Under the hood, an octa-core 7nm MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset paired with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU powers the device.
The camera module of the device features a triple camera setup housing a 50-megapixel primary wide sensor with Auto Focus. The secondary sensor on the setup comes with a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and the tertiary sensor features a VGA sensor. On the other hand, the front-facing camera in the water-drop notch comes with an 8-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling.
The connectivity options of the latest handset from Lava include 5G, 4G VoLTE, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac. Bluetooth 5.0 support, GPS, FM Radio, a 3.5 mm audio jack, and a USB Type-C port. The sensor array on the device includes a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, accelerometer, and proximity. The battery pack provided with the smartphone comes with a 5000mAh cell that supports regular charging speeds.
Price and Availability
The Lava Blaze 5G is priced at around Rs. 10,000, where many contenders bring their entry-level 4G devices in the current times. The brand will bring the device in two colors: Blue and Green, with a single storage version of 4GB RAM and 128 GB ROM.
However, the Blaze 5G will be officially available for sale from November 5 on the e-commerce website Amazon in India. Previously, the brand launched the 4G variant of the Blaze smartphone that featured an Helio chipset and similar design aesthetics. The pricing of the 4G version of Blaze is slightly lesser than the newer 5G version at Rs. 8,699.00.
