LAVA today announced the launch of LAVA Z50, one of the first smartphones to run on Android Oreo (Go edition). Z50 is designed to provide a great product experience, especially to the first time smartphone users. The device will be available at over 100,000 retail stores by mid March, 2018 in black and gold color options. The Price of LAVA Z50 in India is around ₹ 5,000.

Z50, standing tall in LAVA Z series, is born out of the company’s end-to-end control on entire product value chain – from design to manufacturing. The smartphone is thoughtfully designed to address the concerns of first-time smartphone users; powered by the Android Oreo (Go edition) configuration. LAVA Z50 equips users to overcome concerns such as – less storage space to download and store applications, slow opening of mobile applications, user interface and content designed in non-native languages, poor hardware quality and bundling of numerous redundant third party applications.

Mr. Gaurav Nigam, Head – Product, Lava International said  “With LAVA Z50, powered by Android Oreo (Go edition), we are giving our first time smart phone users an impeccable software designed for faster processing, more memory at hand vs. non – Android Oreo (Go edition) phones, and the possibility to get entertainment through YouTube Go, to help users control their data. The camera has been enhanced to give Dual Bokeh experience and an LED flash for night time video calling. I must say it is a great opportunity for both – consumers and the brand”.

Mr. Sagar Kamdar, Director of Product, Android said “Android’s mission has always been to bring the power of computing to everyone, and part of that is ensuring a great experience across a broad range of devices. Android Oreo (Go edition) is specifically optimized to bring the magic of Google and Android to smartphones with limited memory and processing power, and we’re excited to collaborate with Lava to take the next step on that mission by launching the Lava Z50.”
