Lava Blaze 5G is the first 5G handset from the homegrown brand and it is currently on sale on e-commerce platform Amazon India. The device was unveiled by the handset maker a few weeks ago. Priced at Rs 10,999, the Lava Blaze 5G is claimed to be the cheapest-selling 5G smartphone. The Lava Blaze 5G competes with affordable 5G handsets such as Poco M4 5G, Redmi Note 11T 5G and Samsung Galaxy F23 5G. However, these models cost more than the Lava Blaze 5G.
The Lava Blaze 5G is being offered by Amazon India along with an instant discount of 10 per cent up to Rs 1,000 on the OneCard credit cards. Also, the e-commerce platform is offering a no-interest equated monthly instalment for Amazon Pay ICICI credit card users.
According to Lava, the company would provide “free service at home” service to the customer for a good after-sales experience. Customers can avail the service within the phone’s warranty period.
