Blazing past the competition

Bringing the heat to the competition in the budget arena, Lava has launched the new Blaxe NXT. Equipped with an octa-core MediaTek Helio G37 chipset with clock speed of up to 2.3 Ghz, it packs in quite the power for its price. The device runs on Android 12.

Sporting a 6.5in display, the real attention must be given to the glass back with a rear fingerprint sensor. The glass backs come in Blue, Green and Red variants. Under the hood, the octa-core processor is paired with 4GB of RAM (expandable to 7GB) and 64GB of ROM. The device is backed by a 5000mAh battery which claims to offer up to 32 hours of battery life.

On the camera front, you get a 13MP + 2MP AI camera with a VGA coupled with LED Flash. On the front you get an 8MP selfie camera. Expect the works in terms of modes on the camera with features like document intelligent scanning, slow motion videos, GIFs, and time lapse photography.

For connectivity, the phone has a USB Type-C charging port, Bluetooth V5.0, 3.5mm audio jack and 4G connectivity. All this neatly wrapped up in under ₹10,000. The smartphone will be available from 2nd December.
