Lava Yuva Pro launched with Android 12 and a MicroSD slot, and a 3.5mm jack. In the wake of the launch of India’s first affordable 5G smartphone last week, Lava has announced the upcoming release of the Lava Yuva Pro for just 7,800 (about $95) or 7,900 (approximately €98). The comparable Lava Blaze from July cost $8,700, so this one is a steal at 6,500.
Even though the Yuva Pro isn’t the most cutting-edge smartphone, it has everything you’d need. It supports microSD cards up to 512GB in size and has two sim card slots. The phone’s hardware includes 32GB of storage space and 3GB of RAM. It runs Android 12 and uses a MediaTek Helio chipset that has yet to be revealed.
Front and center is a 6.52-inch IPS display with HD+ resolution (20:9). The quality isn’t excellent, but the screen is still relatively large. The 8-megapixel front-facing camera and the 13-megapixel rear-facing camera are both in a notch (and have two auxiliary modules).

There is silence on the topic of video recording, but we can only infer that the highest resolution it can support is 1080p. Unlike the Blaze Pro, which has the fingerprint reader on the rear, this one is on the side (it is slower, though, needing 0.65s to unlock the phone vs. 0.35s on the Blaze Pro).
The Yuva Pro has a powerful battery of 5,000mAh, allowing more than 5 hours of continuous YouTube playback. At 10W, charging the phone takes three hours. The 3.5mm headphone jack allows you to listen to local MP3s or the FM radio, so you’re not limited to streaming for your entertainment needs.
The mobile device may connect to a Wi-Fi 5 (ac) network or as a hotspot. The Lava Yuva Pro is sold via the company’s official webshop. Lava, by the way, provides a free screen replacement during the first 100 days of ownership.
