Talk about cannibalizing the sales of your own device; Lava has just launched a smartphone named Pixel V2 which is obviously the successor to its Pixel V1 device that was launched not too long ago. While the predecessor was just a 3G device with Android One software, this one is a 4G device whose software is skinned with Star OS 2.0.
Moreover, the new Lava Pixel V2 has slightly updated specs as well; all at a cost of Rs 10399 that is lower than the launch price of the Android One handset. This is exactly what makes the launch seem like a funny one, especially because the two smartphones will definitely be disrupting each other’s sales.
Anyway, the new Lava device comes with a 5-inch 720p HD monitor which is 0.5 inches smaller than that of its predecessor‘s. Lava has blessed the handset with a 1.3GHz quad core Media MTK6735 processor that’s complemented by 2GB worth of RAM.
16GB worth of built-in storage has also been granted to it by its makers, apart from a microSD card slot supporting another 32GB. The camera setup of the Pixel V2 impresses with its 13MP rear snapper (1.4-micron pixel size) that’s accompanied by an f/2.0 aperture, a 5p Largan Lens and a dual-LED flash. An 8MP (1.4-micron pixel size) front shooter is there as well, alongside a wide 4p lens with LED flash.
A neat look at the key specs of the new Lava Pixel V2:
– Display: 5-inch, 720p HD
– OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop
– Processor: 1.3GHz quad core Media MTK6735
– Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB storage (expandable up to 32GB)

The Lava Pixel V2 is reportedly being sold via offline channels right now, while its online arrival has been dated for September 15.
