The device has been designed to address most of the concerns that a new smartphone user faces and tries to resolve them.
The Lava Z50 comes with Android Oreo Go edition that addresses issues of storage space, the slow functioning of applications and a cluttered user interface.

The device is powered by a MediaTek MT6737m Processor that runs at 1.1GHz on four cores. This is aided by the 1GB RAM that the device comes with and the internal storage on the device is 8GB of which 5.5GB is available for the user to use. The software has been optimized to reduce the wastage of storage and also optimizes the RAM usage.
Lava Z50 has a 5MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera with Flash to enhance low light images with higher sharpness. The camera app in the device offers Bokeh mode with both, the front, as well as the rear camera and thereby, allows for capturing of moments emphasizing the object over the background. The device supports searching in 10 major Indian languages along with Image search which helps make the device more accessible to the rural areas.
The device comes with 2-year warranty and is bundled with attractive cashback offers from Airtel offering as much as Rs 2000 cashback on the purchase of the device. The company has also announced a special one-time screen replacement offer that allows the consumers to avail a screen replacement within 1 year from the date of purchase.
