The Lava Pixel V2 has been unveiled and is now available in offline shops priced at Rs 10750, lesser than its Android One predecessor. This handset is independent of that initiative and has gone through a pretty significant overhaul in terms of specs.
The most significant shift has happened in its camera department. The Lava Pixel V2 now has a 13MP rear snapper and an 8MP front-facing one. The former has been equipped with an aperture of f/2.0, 5P Largan Lens, a 1.4-micron pixel size and dual-LED flash. The latter is accompanied by an aperture of f/2.4, an 84-degree wide-angle lens and LED flash.
The Pixel V2 has been downgraded slightly when it comes to other features. It now contains 16GB of internal storage, which is lesser than the 32GB its previous variantsported. It further has a smaller 5-inch 720p screen, compared to its predecessor’s 5.5-inch display. Both phones are protected by Asahi Dragontrail Glass.
Moving on to its other specifications, the dual-SIM smartphone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Star OS 2.0 and a 2500mAh battery. The powerhouse is supposed to last up to roughly 24 hours on 2G and approximately 9 hours on 3G. Lava has blessed the phone with 4G LTE connectivity this time round, ensuring the phone is future-ready.
