While Lava may not exactly a household name, they still hold a sizable mark in the smartphone market. And the same brand has recently launched two new smartphones in the Nepal market, namely Lava R5 and Lava R3 Note. Both of the smartphones are flagship devices in Lava’s smartphone lineup and accordingly packs some decent specs.

Lava R5

The Lava R5 comes with a host of features including a huge 6.22″ 19:9 HD+ display with a notch. Internals include the MediaTek Helio P22 Octa-Core SoC paired with the PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Besides, for an HD+ display, the GPU should have no problems. Furthermore, it comes equipped with 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB storage.

The smartphone has a 13+5MP dual rear camera setup on the back and the equally important dual LED flash. Talking about the selfie shooter, the front boasts a 13MP snapper, which looks enthralling when peeked into the hardware details. The selfie shooter is fitted with a wide f/2.0 lens. That’s not all, the most impressive feature here is the giant pixel size of 2.0μm. With large pixel size, each pixel gathers an abundant amount of light so the selfies look bright and vibrant. And this is surely one of the reasons why the Lava R5 is one of best budget camera smartphones available in Nepal in today’s date.

Talking about the selfie camera, this front snapper is also capable of capturing portrait selfies. So if you want your background blurred while taking selfies, the Lava R5 gets you all covered. The same front camera will be in charge of unlocking the smartphone as well. You also get a fingerprint reader to go with the face unlock.

The smartphone comes equipped with a headphone jack and a charger beside the speaker at the bottom. It runs on StarOS 5.1 with Android 8.1 on top. More importantly, it gets a 3260mAh battery with 10W fast charging. Lava claims the smartphone charges from 0 to 80% in 77 minutes and 100% in 102 minutes.
