Lava has announced its latest smartphone the Lava Z50 for India running Android Oreo 8.1 (Go Edition). Both camera modules are accompanied with an LED flash so it will be able to capture images even in poor lighting.

Vani Venkatesh, Chief Marketing Officer, Bharti Airtel, stated,"This partnership is a major milestone for the 'Mera Pehla Smartphone' initiative".

Airtel partnered with several handset makers to launch bundled 4G smartphones at budget-friendly prices through "Mera Pehla Smartphone" initiative, which was launched in October previous year. Google claims Go devices use 50% less space than Android devices that ship without the special edition software.
