Photo Announcement. Lava Blaze 5G - oh, how cheap!

An inexpensive Lava Blaze 5G smartphone was announced in India. In fact, this device does not represent anything interesting. But here's the price... At launch, Lava Blaze 5G will sell for just ₹9999 (₽7540, $121). Just remember this amount. And now I'll tell you what a potential Indian buyer will get for it.

But first, two words about "relatives".

1. Oddly enough, most of all, the new smartphone is similar in its characteristics to the one sold in the Far Abroad Samsung Galaxy A13 5G. Appearance is completely different. But specialspecifications - screen, battery, cameras, chipset - everything is very similar here.

2. Lava Blaze 5G has two namesakes sold in the same place in India. These are Lava Blaze 4G and Lava Blaze Pro.

2.1. Blaze 4G - it's quite boring. For there is a braking quad-core chipset Helio A22. Moreover, the cameras are fundamentally weaker than those of the Blaze 5G. And less memory. Surprisingly, Blaze 4G is not much cheaper - ₹8699 (₽6560, $106). Indian pricing - it's weird, of course.

2.2. But Lava Blaze Pro is very close to Lava Blaze 5G. He only has two permanent memorytimes smaller (64 GB instead of 128 GB) and the chipset is weaker. Why, at the same time, Blaze Pro is now even a little more expensive - ₹10499 (₽7910, $127) - is a great mystery.

Finally, about chipsets. Lava Blaze 5G has MediaTek Dimensity 700. Which means that in AnTuTu we will get quite reasonable 300-350 thousand points. For comparison, Blaze Pro has Helio G37. So here you can’t even get to 150 thousand points.

Memory. Slightly greedy with RAM - it is only 4 GB. And with permanent memory, everything is fine - 128 GB. Plus, there is support for memory cards (a separate tray).

The screen is modest, but slightlyAnd increased - up to 90 Hz - refresh rate. Diagonal 6.52" (103 cm²). Low resolution, only 720x1600 (269 ppi).

The battery is standard good, 5000 mAh. But there is no fast charging.

The set of cameras is, of course, not chic. 8 MP front, triple camera rear. The main sensor has a resolution of 50 MP. What the two additional ones are is not specified.

There is dual-band Wi-Fi, Type-C, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. No NFC module.

The only thing, in my opinion, you can regret is that this miracle will be sold even�Exclusively in India.
