Lava launched the Agni 2 5G in India back in May of this year and it was quite the offering to consider, due to the value it provided for a reasonable price tag. It seems like Lava is planning to follow it up with a new Agni series device, which could be called the Lava Agni 2S. Here’s what it is expected to offer.
A report from 91Mobiles, suggests that the Lava Agni 2S is a smartphone that would be very similar to the Agni 2 5G. This suggests that the smartphones could share the same design and specifications. However, there will be one major difference between the two, and that will be the processor.
The Lava Agni 2 5G comes packed with the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor, and when we reviewed Agni 2 smartphone, we didn’t have any major issues with it. However, with a different chipset, things could take a turn for better or worse, depending on whether Lava plans to make the Agni 2S a better device than Agni 2 5G or an inferior one.
Whatever the case, a similar design could prove beneficial for the Indian brand, considering the Agni 2 5G was impressively built with a glass sandwich design. Aside from this, the report mentions that Lava Agni 2S will debut this month itself, so we can expect teasers or other announcements from the brand very soon.
If it does have similar specifications as the Agni 2 5G, with the Processor being the only differentiator, one can expect the Lava Agni 2S to fall in the same price bracket as its sibling. As Lava hasn’t officially confirmed anything, one should take this information with a pinch of salt.
