How many times have you bought a smartphone to which, however, you personally would have added that little bit more to make it perfect for you, in short, a phone tailored to your needs and tech needs. Well, in a market where the largest OEMs battle it out with top of the range equipped with a thousand thousand photographic sensors, super resolute panels and God knows how much more the future awaits us, a small Indian company has come up with the idea of a smartphone created by the user, in which he will decide which hardware combinations to use in his device.
Lava MyZ is the first smartphone in the world to which you choose the components
Let's be clear, we are not talking about a modular smartphone like Google's Project Ara, in which each component can be replaced and changed at will by the user, but rather the company provides a panel with a series of specifications divided into 5 macros sections, thus combining the parameters that most interest the user, for a total of 66 different combinations.
The smartphone responds to the name of Lava MyZ and the image above speaks clearly: the buyer can select the amount of RAM starting from a base of 2 GB up to 6 GB, as well as the memory can be decided starting from a base of 32 GB, or 64 or 128 GB.
You can also decide the resolution of the selfie camera, choosing an 8 or 16 MP sensor as an option as well as the rear camera which will have a 13 + 2 MP or a trio of 13 + 5 + 2 MP sensors as a base. Finally, even the color can be chosen between a bright red and a blue. Basically, we don't have who knows what specifics, but the idea of Lava MyZ is truly brilliant, also considering the market it is aimed at, so certain specifications are more than valid.
But what if we regret the choice made? Lava MyZ can be updated within one year of purchase, as far as possible, so you can decide to upgrade RAM and ROM, naturally with installation by the company that will certainly know how to get their hands.
A beautiful idea those of Lava MyZ that avoids the waste of elements that are not needed by the user, thus saving him also some pennies, which do not hurt. However, the basic smartphone offers a 35-inch MediaTek G6,5 processor with IPS dispay in HD + resolution while the battery is a 5000 mAh unit. Lava MyZ relies on Android 10 (Go variant for the 2 GB RAM model) for a starting price of 6999 rupees, or about 77 euros which can reach 10699 in the "richer" model, which translates into poco less than 120 euros at the current exchange rate.
