On top of all that is a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for screen protection. Overall, the device weighs 141 grams and measures at 7.9mm thickness. There are only two colour options here which are Black/Gold and Black/Blue.

Hardware and Software

Doing all the the heavy work on the inside is the Mediatek Helio A22 chipset with Quad-Core processors which clocks speeds of up to 2.0GHz. This is paired with either a 2GB or 3GB of RAM. Regardless of the RAM option, it only comes with one storage option of 32GB which can be expanded via an onboard MicroSD card slot up to 128GB. The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

Camera, Battery & Connectivity

The Lava Z81 has only two cameras, one at the front and one at the back. The rear facing camera is a 13MP camera with f/2.2 aperture while the front facing camera is also a 13MP camera but with f/2.0 aperture. One of the best feature of both cameras is that it has an AI (Artificial intelligence) based studio mode which makes it possible for the single cameras (both the front facing and rear camera) to take portrait mode photo as well as applying lighting effects like splash, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and more. Both cameras also have LED flash to light up those low light photos.

Keeping the device up and running is a 3000mAh battery. Other connectivities includes 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS + GLONASS, WiFi and USB On The Go.
