Lava Blaze Pro 5G: What we know so far
Lava Blaze Pro 5G launch was confirmed by Sunil Raina, Business Head at Lava. “This festive season we have lined up some amazing launches that will bring 5G smartphones within everybody’s reach”, he said in a post on X. Raina also thanked the fans as the Lava Blaze 5G was awarded as the Best Smartphone of the Year.
The smartphone’s key specifications also remain unknown at the moment. However, thanks to a leak from Abhishek Yadav, we know that the smartphone will come packed with the MediaTek Dimensity 6020 SoC. Moreover, he says that the smartphone will be priced under Rs 15,000.
As per the photo he shared, the handset seems to have a matte finish with a shiny gradient colour across the panel. It seems to have flat sides and two camera rings housing a 50MP main sensor, a secondary lens, and an LED flash unit. Yadav added that the Lava Blaze Pro 5G will launch in India by the end of this month.

It remains to be seen what the brand will have to offer with its new budget smartphone once the officially announcement takes place.
