Earlier this year, the local brand Lava returned to India with the Z series models. It was a 4G-enabled smartphone that offered various configurations. But this company has higher goals and it is not going to limit itself with “outdated” models. After many months, the manufacturer launched the Lava Agni 5G in India. The latter is a classic mid-range smartphone, which costs less than Rs 20,000 ($270). This model ought to make a tough competition to the models such as the Realme 8 Pro 5G, Redmi Note 10 Pro series, Poco X3 Pro, iQOO Z3 5G, and other handsets that are priced identically. So it’s quite interesting to take look at its features and understand how it’s going to grab its piece of the pie.
