After the Lava A97 smartphone launch, the Indian smartphone company has launched yet another budget device in the market. The Lava X50+ is an upgraded variant of the Lava X50 launched in July, and is priced at Rs. 9,199.
The Lava X50+ is listed on the company website, but no official word on availability has been announced. The smartphone sports the same design as its predecessor, and the only real difference between the two is increased inbuilt storage and introduction of support for VoLTE. Furthermore, the Lava X50+ supports new features like time-lapse videos, and several gesture shortcuts like ‘flip to mute’ and ‘swipe to capture’. It also supports 12 Indian languages, and comes with a ‘one hand mode’ that reduces the display screen size to be able to navigate with a single hand.
The Lava X50+ dons a metallic body with curved edges at the back. The volume and power buttons are both housed on the right edge of the smartphone, and the navigation buttons at the bottom of the display are capacitive in nature. Just to recap, the Lava X50 was launched for Rs. 8,699.
As for the specifications, the Lava X50+ features a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS On-Cell display. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone offers 32GB of inbuilt storage with the option to expand further using a microSD card slot (up to 32GB).
As for the optics, the Lava X50+ sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, autofocus, and 1080p video support. At the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash for low-light selfies and video chats. It packs a 2800mAh battery, supports dual-SIM slots, and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, and a 3.5mm audio jack. It will be made available in Blue and White-Gold colour options.
