Talking about budget or entry segment of smartphones, Lava, seems to understand what the sector of market wants. Not only Lava has been able to produce decent entry level smartphones, it has also been able to capture a decent customer base. The smartphones manufactured by Lava are sturdy and offer a decent performance. The company is expected to launch its “Lava A56” smartphone, which again would be an entry level smartphone. So, let’s see what this smartphone might offer to its users.
The device has a rectangular look with slightly curved bottom edge. Overall, the phone has a decent appearance and looks stylish. The phone is expected to come with 5.0 inches TFT Capacitive touch-screen with 16M colors and screen resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. The phone is supposedly having a dimension of 147 x 72.2 x 9.9 mm thus making it a rather handy smartphone. The phone is expected to support dual SIM, however would nay support 4G network connectivity. However, seeing the current specs, one can expect the phone to have decent display for day to day functions. However, the phone may have less brightness which is a problem with entry level smartphones. The viewing angles may suffer at times and sunlight legibility is expected to be decent.
The Lava A56 is rumored to run on the old Android OS version 4.4, i.e. KitKat. The phone will supposedly feature a 1.3 GHz Dual-core processor which would be backed by a 512MB of RAM. With the rumored specs, one can use the phone easily for performing general day to day functions, but one cannot expect to play heavy applications on this smartphone. The 512MB of RAM provided in the phone seems a little less when compared to the fact that 1 GB is becoming a standard for entry level smartphones. The Motorola Moto M is expected to come with 4 GB of internal storage while the internal storage could be extended up to 32 GB using the microSD card slot provided in the smartphone.
The primary camera is expected to come with 5MP camera with LED flashlight and HDR shooting mode. The primary camera does not feature optical image stabilization and so one has to keep their hands steady while capturing pics. A 0.3Mp primary camera is expected to come with this smartphone. Being an entry level smartphone one cannot expect the camera to take highly detailed images. The images snapped by the camera are workable but in no way impressive. A blue tint sometimes tend to creep into the images. The front shooter can only be used for emergency video calling and one can’t take decent images from it. The audio quality of the smartphone is okay, as the loudspeaker works fine. The phone is supposedly packed with one sensor i.e. accelerometer. The phone comes with a Vibration MP3 WAV ringtones and a 3.5mm jack.
The Lava A56 is expected to come with a removable Li-Ion Ion 1850mAh battery, which again could turn out to be impressive. With the current specs the battery could be expected to run for a day with moderate to heavy usage. The Lava A56 is expected to come with connectivity options such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth version 2.0 and microUSB 2.0.
