Lava Agni 2 5G Overview: India’s First MediaTek Dimensity 7050-Powered Beast!

The brand new Lava Agni 2 5G was recently unveiled and is already turning heads. The smartphone manufacturer is a proud member of the ‘Make in India’ brigade and it is out to reignite the passion for indigenous devices. As has always been the case with Lava’s smartphones, the phone is also out to offer excellent value. At the heart of the phone is the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 processor providing faster gaming and app experience. In fact, the Lava Agni 2 5G is the first smartphone to be powered by this processor and it lays the groundwork for all other amazing features of the smartphone.

Let’s take a look at some of the key features of the smartphone and what makes it such a compelling option for those looking for a new mid-range smartphone.

The power of MediaTek

At the heart of the Lava Agni 2 5G is the MediaTek Dimensity 7050. This chipset makes its debut in India with this smartphone and is all set to help the smartphone deliver solid and reliable performance. This is an octa-core chipset that is based on the 6nm process. So you get better performance as well as greater efficiency as compared to larger processes. A win-win situation!

The MediaTek Dimensity 7050 features two Cortex-A78 cores that are clocked all the way up to 2.6GHz. These are very handy when partaking in resource-intensive tasks such as gaming. For everyday tasks, the processor uses six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. This ensures greater power efficiency.

Large and curvy

The Lava Agni 2 5G features one of the largest screens in the segment thanks to the 6.78-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. However, that’s not its biggest highlight. The display is curved around the sides which not only looks premium but also offers a greater immersion. On top of this, the display offers a colour depth of 1.07 billion colours. It also supports HDR, HDR 10 and HDR 10+ and Widevine L1. This is made possible by MediaTek MiraVision HDR, the world’s 1st native, hardware-based HDR display engine for smartphones.

It should be noted that MediaTek Dimensity 7050 supports refresh rates of up to 120Hz in smartphones with a FHD+ display and the Agni 2 5G makes full use of this. The phone offers a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. This, combined with the MediaTek Intelligent Refresh Rate Display technology ensures all the benefits of the high refresh rate while also maximising power efficiency. On top of this, the display of the smartphone sports double reinforced German Engineered Schott Xensation α Glass screen for greater protection against accidental drops and scratches.

A joy to look at and hold

The Lava Agni 2 5G features a 3D Glass rear panel with a premium AG matte finish. Add to this the Viridian colour finish and you have a smartphone that turns turn heads wherever it goes. But it’s not just about great looks. The 3D Dual Curved design not only looks great, but it also makes it a joy to hold and use.

Picture this

The MediaTek Dimensity 7050 SoC offers support for up to 200MP primary cameras. So the 50MP Quad Camera setup on the Lava Agni 2 5G is in capable hands. The setup also includes a 1-micron pixel sensor which is a segment first. This means more light is received by the sensor, resulting in brighter images in low-light conditions.

The phone can also make use of the MediaTek APU 550 if needed. This APU is designed to help with AI-related enhancements to the camera for an improved photo and video experience.

Game on

Gaming on the Lava Agni 2 5G is all set to be quite an exhilarating experience. Not only is the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 more than powerful enough to take on the latest titles, but it also comes with a host of features that help with gaming. This includes 8GB of RAM that can be virtually expanded by up to 16GB. The phone also comes with the 3rd Gen 2900mm2 Vapour Chamber cooling technology. This should ensure that the phone does not heat up, even during intense gaming sessions. Further helping things along is the X-Axis Linear Motor Haptics that not only allows for a more immersive gaming experience but also improves the typing experience.

Of course, lest we forget. The MediaTek Dimensity 7050 also packs the Arm Mali-G68 GPU. This is specifically optimised to ensure smooth gaming experiences while providing exceptional power efficiency. This means users will be able to enjoy an improved gaming experience for longer periods of time!

Connected and charged

The Lava Agni 2 5G smartphone offers 5G connectivity thanks to the 5G modem inside the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chipset. In fact, the smartphone supports all 13 5G bands that comprise all Indian and major global 5G bands.

Not only this, but the MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology should ensure that 5G connectivity is not taking a toll on the large 4700mAh battery. Speaking of the battery, the Lava Agni 2 5G supports 66W fast charging. This is said to allow the device to charge up to 50% with less than 16 minutes of charging.

In a sea of mid-range smartphones, the Lava Agni 2 5G emerges as a remarkable device that encapsulates power, innovation, and connectivity. With the cutting-edge MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chipset at its core, it delivers solid and reliable performance while maximizing power efficiency. The smartphone is priced at Rs 21,999 and will be available via from May 24. As an added bonus, buyers will get a flat discount of Rs 2,000 on all major credit and debit cards, making the effective starting price just Rs 19,999.
