The Lava Mobiles game-changer event ended with four or more new phones. In fact, it’s a little more than that. It depends on the counting method, but it is less than that. These are all part of the Make in India program, but the Lava Z1 holds the clear title of the first smartphone designed in India.
Lava Z6 and Z4
These two are basically the same phone, so I’ll put them together. Both have a 6.51-inch display with a resolution of 720p or higher and run Android 10 on the MediaTek Helio G35 chipset.
The main difference is whether you need 4GB of RAM (get the Z4 next) or 6GB (get the Z6). In either case, you have more access to 64GB of storage with a microSD slot.
Both devices have a 5,000mAh battery and a charging speed of 3 hours and 15 minutes (at least running on USB-C). On the plus side, the capacity is enough for almost 13 hours of streaming YouTube video.
The camera section shows the triple rear camera – 13MP main (1.12 µm, f / 1.85), 5MP ultra wide and 2MP assistant. The selfie camera is equipped with the highest resolution sensor in the lot, 16MP (1.0 µm, f / 2.0). The maximum video recording is 1080p.
These are 4G phones that support VoLTE and also have a 3.5mm headphone jack and FM radio receiver.
The Lava Z6, Z4, and Z2 will be available starting January 11th. These can be found on the company’s official website, Amazon India, and in physical stores. The Z4 costs an INR of 9,000, while the Z6 goes up to an INR of 10,000.
The Lava Z2 is a “light” version of the two phones listed above. It has the same 6.57 inch 720p + display, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, the same Helio G35 chipset, and the same 5,000mAh battery.
The only difference is the memory, but the only available configurations are 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (also with a microSD slot) and a camera.
The Z2 gets a 13MP main camera and a 2MP helper, but loses the ultra-wide module. Also, the selfie camera will be demoted to 8MP. Video recording is still the best at 1080p.
With these concessions, the Lava Z2 will be yours for Rs 7,000.
Lava has started the Zup program. This allows you to replace your phone with the same model with more RAM and storage at a lower cost. This applies only to the first year of ownership of Z2 to Z6 phones (and myZ phones, details within 1 minute).
The Lava Z1 claims to be the first smartphone designed in India. That aside, I don’t write much about this. This is a basic phone with a 5 inch 480 x 854-pixel display (note the Gorilla Glass 3) and a single 5MP camera on the front and back (limited to 720p video capture). ).
The smartphone runs Android 10 but is limited by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. And this time there is no MicroSD slot. The MediaTek Helio A20 chipset is also a 12nm part with four Cortex-A53 cores (1.8 GHz) and a PowerVR GE8300 GPU.
The phone is powered by a 3,100mAh battery charged via microUSB. It offers a 3.5mm headphone jack with Wi-Fi b / g / n, GPS / GLONASS, and FM radio receiver in addition to 4G connectivity.
The Lava Z1 will cost Rs 5,500 when launched on January 26th.
Don’t you like any of those configurations? Lava has launched the myZ program. This allows you to customize your unit by choosing from five categories of options: rear camera, front camera, RAM, ROM, and color.
Sounds exciting, but in reality this is like a gimmick. The options are quite limited. For example, for a rear camera, you can choose between 13MP + 5MP + 2MP or 13MP + 2MP. And it limits the choices you have later.

The top-spec configuration is the same as the Lava Z6, except that it costs Rs 10,700. However, it comes with 128GB of storage, which is twice as much as the Z6 (more than 700 Indian Rupees).
If you’re not aiming for the top, you have more flexibility. You can configure a Z2-like phone with 6/128 GB memory and / or a 16MP front camera. Alternatively, you can drop it into 2GB of RAM. This will switch the OS to Android Go.
However, the price never goes well (for example, a 2 / 32GB Android Go phone costs Rs 7,000). Unless you choose the top specs in all categories, you can get a Z 6 with more storage for a little more money.
