Lava Z50 Android Oreo (Go edition) smartphone announced at MWC

Lava Z50

Quite a lot of Android Go smartphones have been announced at the ongoing MWC in Barcelona. While the Alcatel 1X, ZTE Temp Go and Nokia 1 made it to the list of first few Android Go smartphones that would probably be available globally, India based phone maker, Lava today at the MWC 2018 unveiled its own Android Oreo Go Edition smartphone – the Lava Z50 that would be available probably only in India.

The Lava Z50 specs sheet points to the entry-level segment, so we are not expecting a device crammed with all modern day features. The highlights of the device are probably its rear and front-facing 5MP camera coupled with LED flash, as well a Bokeh mod.
