Indian smartphone manufacturer Lava has gone official with its latest V5 in India and priced it at Rs. 11,499. The smartphone will be available in both retail stores and on e-bay online store from Wednesday onwards.
Company is relying heavily on its camera to draw the sales. The Lava V5 features a 13-megapixel primary shooter which is packed with PDAF (phase detection autofocus), 5P Largen lens, f/2.0 aperture, and dual LED flash. On the other hand, the secondary camera has an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture and 84 degree wide angle lens coupled with LED flash.
To assist the hardware, complimentary camera app includes features like Pic Focus, Night Pro, Intelligent Selfie, Wide Selfie, GIF maker, and multi-angle view options.
