lava pixel v1

The first in line of the series of second-generation Android One smartphone was launched by Lava today. The Lava Pixel V1 was launched exclusively on Flipkart online along with offline store for the price of Rs 11,350. After the damp response to the first-generation devices, Google made some key changes to this year’s strategy for Android One 2.0. Here are the most significant ones.

Previous year’s Android One smartphones were available specifically online. Micromax Canvas A1, Spice Dream UNO, and the Karbonn Sparkle V were made available exclusively on Amazon India, Flipkart and Snapdeal respectively. In a bid to reach more audience, the company has gone beyond the online spectrum and launched the Lava Pixel V1in offline stores as well. This will help in reaching out to remote market, where Internet access may still be a luxury.

Price

While all the Android One smartphones were launched within Rs 6,500 last year, this year’s Lava Pixel V1 comes with a price tag of Rs 11,350. This is interesting because the core mission of Android One was to bring affordable handsets aimed at bringing the next one billion population to the Android operating system ecosystem. Although this price tag is in the affordable range and brings along better hardware, we can’t help but find last year’s price tag way more lucrative.

Display

The display of last year’s Android One smartphone was at 4.5-inch with 854 480 pixel resolution. In comparison, the Lava Pixel V1 comes with a 5.5-inch HD (1280 720 pixels) IPS display with Asahi Dragon Trail Glass protection.

Processor

This processor remains the same as both generation handsets are powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, but the RAM has been amped up to 2GB from 1GB that was seen last year.

Storage

The storage capacity has got a major boost. The Lava Pixel V1 offers 32GB on internal storage, while the base Android One variants offered only 4GB of internal storage. Both have expandable memory slots.

Camera

On the photography front, the Pixel V1 features an 13-megapixel camera at the back (compared to 5-megapixels seen on first-gen smartphones ), and an 8-megapixel front snapper (comapred to the 2-megapixel sensor seen in first-gen smartphones).

Battery

This new Android One smartphone gets more battery power at 2,650mAh with battery saving options. In comparison, the last year’s smartphones had only a 1,700mAh battery.

Software

All of last year’s smartphones ran on Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, but were later upgraded to Android Lollipop. The Lava Pixel V1 runs on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop with promise for future upgrades as well.
