India based smartphone manufacturer Lava has today introduced Pixel V2 at Rs.10,750. In July 2015 we witnessed its predecessor Lava Pixel V1 under Google’s Android One initiative but, unlike Pixel V1, Lava Pixel V2 does not relate to the Android One project. Comparing the price tags of both the smartphones, the Pixel V2 seems to be a little cheaper and at the same time, boasts better technical specifications, especially in the imaging section.
Based on camera specifications, the Lava Pixel V2 is quite an update over the Pixel V1. The handset carries the 13-megapxiel rear camera with 1.4-micron pixel size, f/2.0 aperture, 5p Largan Lens and Blue Glass Filter with dual-LED flash. Also, it comes with a wide-angle 8-megapixel front-facing camera with 1.4-micron pixel size, f/2.4 aperture, 4p lens and LED flash. Added up by a 1080p resolution video recording capability. The Pixel V2 operates on Android 5.1 Lollipop with the Star OS 2.0 skin, and sports a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) resolution IPS display layered by Asahi Dragontail Glass.
The phone carries almost the same hardware as its predecessor which is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Media MTK6735 (four Cortex A53 cores at 1.3GHz), paired with 2GB DDR3 RAM and Mali T720 GPU. Other than the standard connectivity options, the smartphone also supports Cat 4 4G LTE connectivity. Just like its launch price, Lava has made a cut in the volume of internal storage as well. The Lava Pixel V1 offered 32GB of internal memory but, the new Lava Pixel V2 offers only 16GB internal memory, both expandable up to 32GB.
The Lava Pixel V2 gets the charge from a 2500 mAh battery which is lesser than what was there in its predecessor, which proves reasonable with the reduction in screen size. The Phone weighs 128g and will be available in Icy White, Royal Black and Prism Blue variants. The phone is available for offline sales and is expected to retail online soon in September.
