Lava launches its first Android One smartphone Pixel V1

With a price tag of Rs. 11,350, Lava launched its first Android One smartphone, the Pixel V1, in India on Monday. It is said to be the first second-generation device from Google’s Android One series of smartphones. This new handset is exclusively available online via Flipkart from its launch date. Google will provide Lava Android updates for two years.
The main thing that differentiates the second-generation Android One smartphone from the first-generation is its screen size. The Pixel V1 comes with a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) IPS display, which is larger than the first-generation Android One phones that featured 4.5-inch (480x854 pixels) IPS FWVGA display.
Other features include are a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek (MT6582) processor and a 2GB of DDR3 RAM. It will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. It has 32GB built-in storage which can be expandable via microSD card.
Like the first-generation Android One phones, it also has dual-SIM support and the interesting thing is that both SIMs support 3G connectivity. The thing is that India now has many budget 4G smartphones which are cheaper than Lava Pixel V1. Its other connectivity options are Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, USB OTG, and Micro-USB. It has a 2650mAh battery that will provide long battery back up.
However, on it rear, it has a 13-megapixel camera with a BSI sensor, f/2.0 lens, blue glass filter, and LED flash, while there is an 8-megapixel front camera with an f/2.4 lens also on board.
