Lava Agni 5G launched: 5 features that make the 5G phone impressive

Lava Agni 5G is the latest smartphone from the Indian brand, which was launched only a couple of days ago. This is its first 5G smartphone and is an excellent product with an even better price tag. The phone is priced at just Rs 19,999, which makes it an affordable 5G phone, but with mid-range features. The phone stands apart from other similarly priced devices thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset. Lava has been MIA from the smartphone business for a while now, but has made a nice comeback with the launch of the Agni 5G. Since this is a 5G phone, let’s take a look at some of its 5G features. 

5G Dual SIM Support

While most affordable 5G smartphones, and some mid-range 5G phones, offer only single 5G SIM support, the Lava Agni 5G features 5G Dual SIM support. This is thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset, which enables this feature. Users can use two 5G SIM cards with the Agni 5G smartphone, making it easy to switch between 5G networks. With similarly priced devices, you only get dual SIM (5G+4G) support, which is where the Lava Agni 5G stands apart from the competition. 

5G Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDA) 

Lava Agni 5G - 5G capabilities

The Agni 5G from Lava also comes with the 5G DSDA feature. This technology allows you to use both the 5G SIMs seamlessly and connect to both networks simultaneously. Normally, with phones that don’t support 5G DSDA technology, only one 5G network will remain active. Even if the smartphone supports dual 5G SIM cards, it can only use one SIM at a time. Therefore, 5G DSDA is an excellent feature that’s included in the Lava Agni 5G. It also means that the phone is future-ready. 

5G UltraSave Technology

The MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset in the Lava Agni 5G smartphone comes with 5G UltraSave technology. It offers several power-saving features that make the smartphone more efficient. The chipset can automatically manage the integrated 5G modem’s operating mode for best efficiency, in real-time. It features an intelligent algorithm that dynamically adjusts the power and operating frequency of the modem based on the network environment and data transmission quality. Since 5G smartphones are usually more power-hungry than 4G phones, the UltraSave technology makes sure the 5,000mAh battery on the Agni 5G lasts long. 

Dual Network Acceleration

Another feature present in the new Lava Agni 5G is Dual Network Acceleration. This allows for the phone to automatically switch to a faster 5G network in case the Wi-Fi connection is slow or unsteady. This can come in handy when you’re on a Zoom call or something important, where you don’t want any lag in data transmission. With this feature, the phone will immediately switch to the faster 5G connection when the Wi-Fi is bad. 

Call and Data Concurrency on 5G

While you are gaming, with MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset, the phone can simply defer calls without the 5G data connection dropping. Considering how this feature allows for uninterrupted gaming, Agni 5G definitely has the potential to be a popular choice among gamers.


Lava did an excellent job with the Agni 5G smartphone. These 5G features, especially 5G Dual SIM and DSDA support, will ensure that the phone is ready for the future. The 5G infrastructure in India isn’t ready yet, but when everything is set up and ready for consumer use, the Lava Agni 5G will already be prepared. 

The Agni 5G is also a well-specced mid-range smartphone. It comes with a large 6.78-inch LCD display with FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone offers up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, while also featuring a microSD card slot for expansion. It house a 5,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging support, runs Android 11 with a custom UI on top, and has a quad-rear camera setup with a primary 64-megapixel sensor. A side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 16-megapixel front camera is also available on the phone.
