Lava has launched a new X-series smartphone in India, the X28. Priced at Rs. 7,349, the handset is now available to buy via retailers across the country.
The Lava X28 features a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) IPS display, with a pixel density of 267ppi. The smartphone sports a screen-to-body ratio of 67 percent. The dual-SIM X28 smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box and supports 4G, but only on one SIM card at a time. The Lava X28 supports 4G LTE bands in India - FDD-LTE Band 3 (1800MHz), Band 5, and TDD-LTE Band 40 (2300MHz). The smartphone also supports VoLTE (voice over LTE) with HD voice call compatibility, a highlight of the handset.
It sports an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. The Lava X28 packs 8GB of built-in storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 32GB).
Backed by a 2600mAh battery, the handset offers up to 14 hours of talk-time on 3G and up to 16 hours of talk time on 2G. Connectivity options on the Lava X28 include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot functionality, Bluetooth, FM radio, Micro-USB, and GPS.
The smartphone will be available in Gold and Silver colours. It measures 155x78x8.9mm and weighs 175 grams.
The domestic handset maker earlier this month ahead of the festive season announced a one-time screen-replacement offer valid for a duration of 365 days. The offer was announced for Lava mobiles purchased between September 15 and November 15 (both days inclusive) and was applicable to both smartphones and feature phones.
