Lava Z60s device is new and released from the stable of Lava Mobile. It is one of the affordable mobile smartphones unveiled in the month of August 2018. One of the main thrust of the device is that it is operating on Android Go Edition software but is able to get an upgrade to Android 9.
Display and Design
The Lava Z60s sports a 5-inch IPS HD display with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The IPS capacitive touch-screen comes with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution and is multi-touch capable.
The Lava Z60s is considerably light-weight. It weighs just 136 grams, having 144.3 x 71.44 x 8.5 mm in dimension. The device comes in two colors; black, gold.
Lava Z60s is equipped with an autofocus camera, which means it is able to fine-tune the camera’s focus, bringing out certain main aspects of images or photos.
The selfie camera to the front is 5 MP and the one to the rear is also 5 MP. Don’t expect much from this budget smartphone. The rear camera has 2592 x 1944 in pixels. The front and rear cameras are also equipped with LED flash capacities.
Network and Connectivity
Lava Z60s is a dynamic smartphone. This smartphone has a built-in GPS receiver that enables a satellite-based navigation system meant to guide you in different directions or locations.
The smartphone has an FM radio receiver. For the network and SIM, Lava Z60s is a GSM phone making use of 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile networks with Bluetooth v4.0, WLAN, Wi-Fi, micro USB 2.0 and an audio 3.5 mm headphone jack. SIM type on Lava Z60s is dual Nano.
As briefly touched on above, Lava Z60s runs on Android operating system v8.1 Go Edition Oreo, out-of-the-box software but for Lava Z60s, the firmware can be upgraded to a newer version of Android.
The chipset which runs on the device is Mediatek MT6739, while the CPU is Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53, powered by PowerVR GE8100.
Lava Z60s is empowered by a 2500 mAh non-removable battery. This makes sense because it is a low maintenance battery. Simply do the charging at random. The battery available on Lava Z60s is a good one because as stated by the manufacturer, it doesn’t require any discharge.
Storage Capacity Information
The Lava Z60s has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The internal storage is able to increase up to 64GB through a microSD card. This means that Lava Z60s is okay for storing up a reasonable amount of information, but not for downloading heavy and demanding games from the internet.
Lava Z60s Protection Features
Lava Z60s is able to measure physical quantities and transmit them to the application processor. There’s the accelerometer which is able to measure tilt and motion.
There’s also the proximity sensor that detects when someone is holding the phone close to his or her face during a call. This is able to prevent keypad press and unnecessary battery usage or consumption during the call.
Price and Availability
The Lava Z60s is priced starting at Rs 4,799 at the time of release. The mobile phone is available on Amazon, Flipkart, Shopclues and other online smartphone stores.
By the end of September, as we expect, most offline shops will also have Lave Z60 in stock for customers.
