Lava today launched Pixel V2, the successor of Pixel V1, at Rs 10,750. The Lava Pixel V2 is said to be available offline at this point of time but will hit the online stores on September 15. Curiously the older Lava Pixel V1 is still available for a higher price tag of above Rs 11,000.
The Lava Pixel V2 has a 5 inch touchscreen with high definition (720p) resolution and Asahi Dragontail Glass that should protect it from scratches. The smartphone is powered by a 64 bit MediaTek quad core processor and 2GB DDR3 RAM. The device has 16 GB internal storage that is expandable up to 32 GB. Curiously, the phone has a custom user interface called Star OS 2.0 which is based on Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system.
The Lava Pixel V2 has dual SIM slot offering 4G connectivity (one 4G slot running at a time) and dual standby. It packs a 2500 mAh Li-Po battery. But most importantly, the V2 has a 13 megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash and an 8 megapixel ‘selfie’ camera which too comes with an LED flash. The smartphone promises to capture images like none other in its category and that’s because of the 1.4 micron large pixel size, F2.0 and F2.4 aperture of the rear and front camera, respectively.
“The 1.4 micron large pixel size allows enhanced light intake per pixel helping in capturing brighter, clearer images with great detail. The aperture gives depth of field, better focus and great images in low light. The camera comes with 5 layer Largan lens in rear camera and 4 layer LarganTM lens in front camera along with Blue Glass Filter that cuts off infrared light to help the sensor reproduce true life-like colours,â€ claimed Lava in a press release.
Additionally, the camera offers various features through a software called MagicPix with features like wide angle Selfie (enables group selfies), night Mode (brighter pictures in low light), Pic Focus (focuses on the image and blurs the background), Face Beauty (for face sliming, smoothing, eye widening and whitening), Intelligent Mode and GIF maker.
The smartphone will be available in Icy White and Royal Black colours.
