Lava P7 Plus announced for India at Rs. 5,649
Way back in January, we learned of the Lava P7’s existence, and as we creep towards the end of the year, the company has just unveiled a variant. The Lava P7 Plus is headed to India, and it’s going to carry a price tag of Rs. 5,649.
The original P7 was an entry-level handset thanks to specs like a 5-inch FWVGA display and a lowly 8GB of RAM. The cameras were its saving grace in a sense as the 5MP/2MP camera combo had flashes on both sides. The follow-up or variant if you prefer, is the Lava P7 Plus and we’re pleased to say it actually lives up to the “Plus” moniker.
Lava opted for a 5-inch panel on the Lava P7 Plus, and the resolution has improved to 1,280 x 720. It has 2.5D glass this time around as well, and the processor has been bumped up to a 1.3GHz quad-core chip. That said, the RAM remains the same at 1GB as does the storage although you can kick the 8GB up to 64GB with a microSD card slot.
On the rear of the Lava P7 Plus, you will find a solid 8MP sensor with an LED flash, while the front-facing camera is listed at 5MP, also with an LED flash. Connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi, Dual-SIM, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and an FM radio. The Lava P7 Plus will pull its juice from a reasonably sized 2,500mAh battery and is listed with Android 6.0.
While it would have been nice to see a bit more under the hood with the RAM and storage, the Lava P7 Plus is a solid upgrade over the previous model. It’s still inexpensive as well at Rs. 5,649 and will be available to purchase later this week if you reside in the region.
