Lava says that it is coming late to the party as it wanted to bring a high quality, high specification product to market. The phone is likely to be slightly more expensive than similar devices from Micromax and Spice.
The phone is likely to feature the latest version of Android. It is to have a capacitive touchscreen and good music capability. Sunil Raina, director of marketing, Lava Mobile, told 'The Mobile Indian', "We are late as we wanted to bring a high quality specification-rich Android phone to the market. We are more or less ready with the product and we will soon launch it."
Although he refused to divulge the details, he said music will be one of the strong points of this phone. Lava Mobile has tied up with SRS Labs, which is an industry leader in surround sound, audio and voice technologies. Lava mobile phones will likely feature SRS WOW HD technology.
On the pricing front, Sunil informed us that the phone will be slightly more expensive than the current crop of Indian Android phones owing to better quality and features, but the price difference won't be significant.
We expect this phone to have at least a 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen, 800 MHz processor, and probably the latest version of Android, 2.3.
However, no details of the devices are available yet.
Post the upgrade, consumers will be able to enjoy a lot more benefits such as improved battery life, easy accessibility to app information, smoother and enhanced smartphone experience and many more.
