Smartphone companies tend to release or at least announce new phones with multiple configurations on the same day. But, this is not true for the Lava Blaze 5G which has just received its third configuration refresh. The 5G smartphone launched with 4GB RAM last year and received a 6GB RAM variant earlier this year. Now months later, Lava has announced a new variant that comes with 8GB RAM. It also brings more virtual RAM support and a new Android 13 software version.
Lava Blaze 5G 8GB RAM Variant Price and Availability
The Lava Blaze 5G 8GB RAM variant is priced at Rs 12,999 in India. However, as part of the launch price offer, it can be grabbed for Rs 12,499 for a limited time. There is an additional discount of up to Rs 1,000 on SBI credit cards and EMI transactions which brings its price to as low as Rs 11,499.
The newly announced variant will go on sale via Amazon today i.e. August 3 at 12 PM IST. If you are interested in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants of the phone, these are currently priced at Rs 10,999 and Rs 11,999 (excluding offers) respectively on Amazon.
Lava Blaze 5G 8GB RAM Variant Specifications and Features
The Lave Blaze 5G 8GB RAM variant is largely similar to the other two variants but there are a few noteworthy differences. The first one is obviously the 8GB RAM capacity but it also brings up to 8GB virtual RAM support. You get up to 3GB and 5GB virtual RAM with 4GB and 6GB RAM variants respectively.
The other major difference is that the new Lava Blaze 5G 8GB RAM variant will boot Android 13 out of the box. The previous two variants launched with Android 12 software experience. Apart from these differences, the rest of the specifications and features are unchanged.
The Lava Blaze 5G sports a 6.5-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) IPS display with 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it has an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor with 5G connectivity support. The phone features a 50MP AI triple camera setup on the back and an 8MP selfie camera with a screen flash.
The onboard storage capacity is 128GB and it also supports microSD cards up to 1TB. It is packed with a huge 5,000mAh battery along with 15W charging support. However, you get a 12W charger bundled with the box. Other features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, and Bluetooth 5.1.
In other news, Lave launched a new budget smartphone Lava Yuva 2 in India just yesterday. It is a phone with a 6.5-inch HD+ 90Hz display, a Unisoc T606 processor, 3GB RAM, 64GB storage, 13MP dual cameras, and Android 12.
