Lava Blaze 5G: Price in India and Availability
The Lava Blaze 5G has been launched at an introductory price of Rs 9,999 for the 4GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. This is the only storage configuration that Lava is offering for this phone. Do note that this is an introductory price which means that the original price will be increased after the first or second sale. The company is yet to announce the original price. It is available in two colours – Glass Blue and Glass Green.
The phone’s teaser is live on Amazon and on the official website, however, the sale date is yet to announce.

The Lava Blaze 5G features a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD screen with a screen resolution of 1600 × 720 pixels. It is a 2.5D curved display and supports a 90Hz screen refresh rate.
As mentioned above, the device is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset with up to 2.2GHz clock speed, and the chip is built on a 7nm fabrication process. It is a popular chipset that we have seen on the Redmi 11 Prime, Poco M4 5G, and more. The System-on chip (SoC) is paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS storage. It comes with Virtual RAM technology which means you can get a total of 7GB RAM by utilising its free storage. Further, the storage can be expanded by up to 256GB using an external micro-SD card.
Coming to the optics, the device flaunts a triple rear camera setup led by a 50MP (f/1.8) main camera, a depth, and a macro camera. There is an 8MP (f/2.0) selfie camera on the front for selfies.
The device packs a beefy 5,000mAh battery unit however, there is no word on fast charging yet. Charging happens here via a USB Type-C port. Lava claims that the Blaze 5G on a single charge can last 50 hours on talktime and 25 days on standby mode.
Other features of the device include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, multiple 5G bands, Bluetooth v5.1, GLONASS, 3.5mm audio jack, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac and GPRS.
