Lava has pulled the wraps off the Pixel V2, successor to the Pixel V1, at an event held in Mumbai. Priced slightly lower than its predecessor, the Pixel V2 will cost Rs 10,399.
Unlike the V1, the V2 doesn’t fall into the allegedly failed Android One category. The device will run Android 5.1 along with a layer of the company’s Star OS 2.0. In terms of specifications, the Pixel V2 sports a smaller 5inch HD display compared to 5.5-inch display found on the V1. It comes powered by a 64-bit quad-core Mediatek processor. It also includes 2GB of RAM.
On the storage, the company has announced 16GB of internal storage. A 2500mAh battery completes the package. The Pixel V2 comes equipped with a 13MP rear snapper with 5 element Largan lens and f/2.0 aperture. For selfie lovers, it offers an 8MP front camera with f/2.4 4-element lens.
Commenting on the launch Navin Chawla, Senior Vice President & Head Product, LAVA International said, “The smartphone segment in India is growing exponentially, driven primarily by youth. With smartphones becoming an indispensable part of their lives, camera becomes so much more important. The youth today wants to capture special moments in their life and share them instantly in their social circle. To enable them to capture those moments perfectly, we are delighted to announce the second variant in the Pixel Series with the best in class camera hardware & software features. With this device, we aim to further build a strong portfolio of smartphones in the 10k range and deliver on our mission of empowering people to do more and be more.”
With the V2 priced around Rs 10k, Lava will be competing with devices from Xiaomi, Micromax and Motorola that fall in the same price bracket.
