December 11, 2021 by No Comments

Lava Mobiles is back in the news with its first 5G smartphone in India, the Lava Agni 5G. This new model has been launched in the sub-Rs. 20,000 segment, which is now bustling with 5G smartphones. From the looks of it, the Lava Agni 5G does seem well spec’d. It is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC and sports a quad camera setup. It also packs in a 5,000mAh battery and supports 30W fast charging. With such powerful hardware, can the Agni 5G set the market on fire? I put the Lava Agni 5G to the test to find out.

Lava Agni 5G price in India

The Lava Agni 5G is priced at Rs. 19,999 in India for its lone 8GB RAM, 128GB storage configuration. It’s available in only one colour called Fiery Blue.

Lava Agni 5G design

The Lava Agni 5G is a big smartphone, packing in a 6.78-inch display with a holepunch for the selfie camera. This hole is noticeable and can be distracting. I found the bezels around the display to be sleek, with only the chin being comparatively thicker. The phone has a plastic body, and the frame has a glossy blue finish that shines when light reflects off it. Lava has curved the sides of the frame which makes this phone comfortable to hold. The top and bottom are flat.

The power and volume buttons are on either side, positioned towards the middle of the frame, making them easy to reach. The power button on the right has an integrated capacitive fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone with. Above the volume buttons on the left side is the slot for the hybrid dual-SIM tray. The Lava Agni 5G has a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and loudspeaker at the bottom, while the top only has the secondary microphone.

Lava has gone with a quad-camera setup at the back, and the module does protrude. It has a two-step design with the dual-LED flash and a single camera sensor in the first step, and the other three camera sensors raised a bit further. The back panel has a glossy finish and picks up smudges rather easily. You get a case in the box, along with a 30W fast charger. The phone weighs 204g, which is noticeable when using it.

Lava Agni 5G specifications and software

The Lava Agni 5G has a 6.78-inch IPS LCD display with a full-HD+ resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. The Agni 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC, which is also found in the Realme 8s 5G and the recently launched Redmi Note 11T 5G. This processor is matched with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. You can expand storage using a microSD card, but that comes at the cost of the second Nano-SIM because of the hybrid slot.

The Lava Agni 5G houses a 5,000mAh battery and comes with a 30W charger in the box for fast charging. It supports Bluetooth 5.1, dual-band Wi-Fi, dual 5G, and 4G VoLTE connectivity.
