Earlier this month, Indian brand Lava had launched the Lava A9 feature phone. It featured a tri-colour inspired back panel as a part of Independence Day celebrations. Now the smartphone maker has announced a new feature phone called the Lava Pulse.
As the name suggests, the Lava Pulse is equipped with a built-in heart rate sensor and a blood pressure monitor. However, it’s worth noting that the phone isn’t substitute for a medical device. Let’s take a look at the Lava Pulse below.
Lava Pulse specifications and features
The Lava Pulse offers a 2.4-inch QVGA display and supports stereo sound. The device features a polycarbonate body with military-grade certification and can be availed in a Rose Gold colour option. The pulse scanner is located on the navigation button and users will have to place their thumb on it to detect the heart rate or blood pressure.
The results are displayed on the screen and can be saved as well as shared with others via SMS. Lava claims that the Pulse’s sensor readings have accuracy similar to current electronic heart rate and blood pressure monitors.
The Lava Pulse packs 32MB RAM and comes with expandable memory of up to 32GB. The device offers connectivity options like dual-SIM slots, micro-USB, 3.5mm audio jack, wireless FM and more. The feature phone also supports auto call recording function. It enables users to type in seven languages including English, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Gujarati and Punjabi.
Lava Pulse price in India
The Lava Pulse is priced at Rs 1,599 and is available for purchase on Amazon, Flipkart and across brick and mortar stores in India. Lava is also offering 1-year replacement service for the feature phone.
