Exclusive: Next Lava Smartphone to have Segment First Features, Launch in July

Lava is planning to launch another affordable smartphone in India with segment-first features by July 2024.

Lava is working on a new smartphone to expand its lineup in India. The device will be priced below Rs 20,000.

Sunil Raina, managing director of Lava International, told The Mobile Indian, “We are planning to release a smartphone with features that will set a new benchmark in its segment for less than Rs 20,000 sometime between June and July.” He didn’t share any other details.

However, sources familiar with the development said, “Lava’s new smartphone will play big on display and in its price segment and could be priced below Rs 15,000.”

Talking about Lava’s growth, Raina said, “As per a research report, Lava was the fastest-growing brand in the Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000 segment last year in India, and this year, we are poised to continue the growth momentum.”

Lava has been selling smartphones priced under Rs 20,000 for some time now. It seems the brand is focused on consolidating its position in this price segment before considering other segments. Having said that, Lava does have an aspiration to move to the next price segment. Raina said, “We plan to offer phones in the Rs 30,000 price segment in the near future, but as of now, I don’t have a confirmed timeline as the work is in progress.”

Android update roadmap for Lava smartphones

In addition, Raina revealed the Android 14 roadmap for the Lava Agni 2 5G and other Lava devices. The Lava Agni 2 5G will receive the Android 14 update in the next 2 to 3 weeks, i.e. 15 to 20 days. As for the other models, such as the Lava Blaze Curve 5G and those that are eligible for the Android 14 update, they will all be receiving it in the next 2 to 3 months, confirmed Raina.

Lava Smartwatches

The Prowatch ZN has a circular dial, while the Prowatch VN features a square dial. In its segment, the Prowatch ZN is the first smartwatch to offer Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the screen.
