Lava is here with a “new” phone, which as per the company is the “Real Fastest Phone in the Segment”. Keeping the marketing statement aside, this phone is a mere repackaging of the Lava Yuva 3 Pro at a slightly cheaper price. Anyhoo, let’s get into further details of the Lava O2 including its expected price in Nepal.

Lava O2 Overview

Design and Display

As I mentioned earlier, the Lava O2 is the same phone as the Lava Yuva 3 Pro. These two phones are similar down to the teeth. This stands true even in the phone’s design and colours. That being said, it comes in a flat design with the camera island covering the top corner on the back. Meanwhile, the back of this phone features an AG glass layering. The Lava O2 ships in Imperial Green, Majestic Purple, and Royal Gold colour options.

Moving on to the front, you get a 6.5-inch screen with an LCD panel. The display comes in HD+ resolution while offering a 90Hz refresh rate. Other than that, it is also capable of displaying 16 million colours.


Under the helm of Lava O2 is the UNISOC T616. This processor is over three years old at this point. Despite that, the company boasts that it outdoes the likes of the MediaTek Helio G36 and even the G85 by a respectable margin. However, AnTuTu scores don’t paint the entire picture. This is why you still cannot expect the phone to give you a great performance. Just enough to get you by, under normal usage.

Lava O2 Performance

Additional hardware on this phone includes an 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM. This is on the lower end by 2024 standards, which is why you get expandability options on the Lava O2. This means that you can virtually double the RAM while the storage can be expanded up to 512GB with a MicroSD card. On the software front, the phone boots on Android 13 with no ads or bloatware.

Camera and the rest

The Lava O2 houses two cameras on the back, the primary of which is a 50MP sensor. Meanwhile, you also get a measly auxiliary unit that the company just labels “AI”. This suggests that this lens is nothing but a decor. On the other end, you get an 8MP shooter that also doubles down as a face scanner.

In the tank, this phone packs a 5,000 mAh battery while supporting 18W fast charging. It comes with dedicated slots for two SIM cards while offering 4G connectivity. Additionally, you also get dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 support. The Lava O2 has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for further security. Lastly, it comes with the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack.
