Lava Blaze 5G Launched As India's Cheapest 5G Smartphone

Indian smartphone maker, Lava, has announced the prices of its Lava Blaze 5G smartphone in India. It comes at an introductory price of ₹9,999 and is the cheapest 5G smartphone in the country. For those not in the know, the smartphone was unveiled at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022 by minister Ashwini Vaishnav back in October. Lava has achieved a great feat by introducing India's cheapest 5G phone. But, does it pack the performance and features?


Does The Cheapest 5G Phone Offer Performance?

The Lava Blaze 5G may be an affordable offering, but it packs in the octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset built on the 7nm fabrication process. It comprises two ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The chipset also packs in the Arm Mali-G57 MC2 GPU.

In terms of optics, the Lava Blaze 5G is equipped with a triple rear camera setup. It gets a 50MP primary sensor, accompanied by depth and macro sensors. Selfies and video calling duties are handled by the 8MP front-facing shooter.


The Lava Blaze 5G supports eight 5G bands in India. It is equipped with 4GB RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage.
