Just recently, Lava unveiled a new budget handset dubbed Lava A93, that comes packed with an HD display and a 3000mAh battery for a price of Rs. 7,999.
Considering the price of the handset, we can all agree that it can compete against the likes of Redmi 4, Moto C Plus, and the recently released InFocus Turbo 5 even though it does not come with the 4G VoLTE support.
As per specifications, the dual-SIM Lava A93 runs on Android 6.0 and comes with a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280) display. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM, the handset packs an internal storage of 16GB, that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 32GB).
Talking about the handset’s design, it comes with a camera module and a speaker grille on the back tagged with antenna lines running along the top and bottom of the smartphone. On the right side lies the power button and volume controls.
Coming to the optics, the Lava A93 bears an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, both of which are tagged with LED flash.
The handset comes with connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS, USB 2.0, FM, and 3G.
Quite unfortunately, the Lava A93 doesn’t support 4G. It houses 3000mAh battery, measures 145×72.2×8.85mm and weighs 152 grams.
Given the fact many handsets from companies like Xiaomi and Motorola are offering quality phones in terms of design and specifications, including 4G VoLTE support at the same price point as the Lava A93, the company feels quite underwhelmed.
