Teaser sparks speculation among Twitter users
Raina’s tweet features two fire emojis followed by the word “Soon.”
Twitter users quickly speculated that this was a hint at the arrival of the Lava Agni 2 5G, which is expected to be a midrange handset priced between Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 25,000.
Specifications of the Lava Agni 2 5G
Previous reports have suggested that the Lava Agni 2 5G will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek chipset and feature a 90Hz refresh rate display.
The phone is also rumored to have a 5,000 mAh battery and 128GB of storage. It may feature a 6.5-inch AMOLED display.
Lava’s recent launches
Lava recently launched the Lava Yuva 2 Pro, a budget smartphone priced under Rs. 10,000.
The company has not yet confirmed plans to launch the Lava Blaze Pro 2 5G or another Lava Blaze smartphone in India.
The release of the Lava Agni 2 5G will mark another addition to the growing list of homegrown smartphone brands in India.
With its rumored midrange pricing and specifications, it will likely compete with other midrange smartphones in the Indian market.
Lava’s recent launches show that the company is focused on providing budget-friendly smartphones to Indian consumers.
As the smartphone market in India continues to grow, it will be interesting to see how Lava’s latest offering will fare against its competitors.
With Xiaomi’s recent launch of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra smartphone and Apple’s opening of its first stores in India, the competition in the Indian smartphone market is heating up.
