#GTUMWC2018: Lava is going to release their first Android Go smartphone, dubbed as the Lava Z50. This will make Lava the first Indian smartphone brand to create an Android Go smartphone. Earlier, Micromax had revealed that it is working on an Android Go edition smartphone called Bharat Go, but nothing much has been revealed since then about that smartphone.
The Lava Z50 Android Go edition smartphone will be available to buy in March in India. Lava has confirmed that this smartphone is eligible for Airtel’s “Mera Pehla Smartphone” cashback offer with one-time screen replacement. The price of the smartphone has not been revealed but we know that it will be priced in the budget segment.
