On Friday, Lava International launched the Yuva 3 in India. The phone has a 6.5-inch HD+ screen, a 5,000 mAh battery, and three rather vibrant colors. It will be available to purchase from Amazon and the company’s official website in a few days.
Lava Yuva 3 Design
The Yuva 3 comes in three colors: Eclipse Black, Cosmic Lavendar, and Galaxy White. Users get nearly symmetrical bezels on the front on three sides and a thicker chin at the bottom. There’s a punch-hole camera in the center as well.
Users get the power button and volume rockers on the right, while the left panel houses the SIM tray. The USB-C port, along with the speaker and the primary microphone, are on the bottom frame.
The side frame and the back panel have a metallic and matte finish, respectively, which gives the smartphone a premium look.
Lava Yuva 3 Specifications
The Lava Yuva 3 has a 6.5-inch HD+ screen that supports a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the smartphone runs on the Unisoc T606 octa-core processor. The processor runs alongside 4GB of physical RAM and 4GB of virtual RAM. In terms of storage, users can pick from either 64GB or 128GB variants; both feature UFS 2.2 storage.
Regarding optics, the smartphone has a 13MP primary sensor. The official press release mentions something about a “13MP Triple AI rear camera,” but the resolution and nature of the other two cameras aren’t mentioned. On the front, users get a 5MP selfie shooter. Powering the smartphone is a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 18W wired charging.
Fortunately, the phone supports charging via a USB-C port, not a micro USB port. Other features of the smartphone include face unlock, two years of assured security updates, a guaranteed update to Android 14, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Out of the box, the phone ships with Android 13. Considering the price we’ll discuss next, the Lava Yuva 3 seems to be a decent smartphone.
Another unique selling point for the smartphone is the company’s promise to provide free home service for phones under warranty. This is a great convenience, considering users must take the phones to the service center and get them repaired for a fee.
