Lava's next-gen Android One phone could be unveiled this week; here are the latest rumored specs
Last week, we told you to be prepared for the unveiling on Monday, of the first second-generation Android One model from India's Lava International. Now, we understand that this introduction will take place on July 29th. At the time we told you about Lava's new handset, we had only a tiny bit of information about the device. Now, some more information has leaked giving us a better idea of the bump in specs that we will find with the new Android One models. Remember though, the idea behind the Android One handsets is to give consumers in emerging markets their first taste of being a smartphone owner. 

We now know the name of the device, the Lava Pixel V1. And while initial reports had the device equipped with a 5-inch screen, today's leak says the handset will feature a 5.5-inch LCD display with a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. The glass will be protected from scratches by DragonTrail Glass by Asahi.

Powering the Lava Pixel V1 will be a 64-bit Snapdragon chipset carrying a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of internal storage that can be doubled thanks to the 32GB capacity microSD slot. A 13MP camera (with an aperture of f/2.0) can be found on the back of the unit while a 5MP snapper adorns the front of the handset. Keeping the lights on is a 2650mAh battery, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. Buyers of the phone are promised updates for the next two years, and because they come directly from Google, there is no slowdown or delay for carrier testing.

The Pixel V1 supports 3G HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS connectivity, and is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $177 USD. We should find out more about the phone, including the precise launch date, when Lava officially unveils the handset later this coming week.

Wow.. top and bottom bezel look minimal and I'm lovin' it. If it's a 5" then only 132 mm tall (143 mm for a 5.5" screen) (if it's a proper or correct size image, no stretch) Makes me wonder why no Mfr. beside Sharp could do it!

It may not be the cheapest budget phone, but at least the design looks above average to me.

That's a nice looking phone for the price and the specs are decent. Not sure what phones you folks are buying, but anything cheaper is probably Chinese without a quality warranty and loaded with spyware.

Pretty decent effort. A good balance of design, price and spec. A Google Nexus experience with a MicroSD slot, priceless.

This new LAVA Pixel V1 is so gonna rock, trust me! I just read about it and can’t get over it’s amazing specs, they literally amazed me man. I’m so gonna buy this because of its big screen and such a fast 2GB ram. I’m definitely willing to spend more than 15k on this but to my surprise it is only12k, so cool right?
