The launch of the LAVA R5 in the UAE and GCC comes at a time, when LAVA International is strengthening its position in India, Asia, Middle East and Africa’s growing mobile handset market. LAVA R5 is the latest handset with great improvement on its earlier product LAVA R3.


Running on the powerful Media Tek Helio P22, a 2.0GHz Octa-core processor, LAVA R5 provides more seamless operation and enjoyable game experience. According to AnTuTu Benchmark, the CPU and GPU performances of LAVA R5 are largely improved by 91.2 percent and 410.3 percent respectively compared to those of LAVA R3.


"Good at integrating the traditional technological product with the fashion elements, LAVA has more than 60 million passionate users around the world today, and we encourage them to embrace their self-expression and an energetic lifestyle." Eric Chen, Marketing Manager of LAVA International for the Gulf region. “With the launch of LAVA R5, we would like to extend our market share in the GCC and the UAE, where LAVA is a growing and popular brand.”


The latest flagship handset, LAVA R5 comes with a series of robust features with a competitive price of Dh899 apiece, making it stand out from the crowd in the competitive market.


Featuring the remarkable 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM, LAVA R5 brings an entirely new and pleasant experience to its users. The 6GB RAM, backed by the excellent LPDDR4X standard, ensures a faster operation and lower power consumption.


Compared to LAVA R3, the previous flagship model, the data processing speed of LAVA R5 is increased by 64 percent and the usage time is extended by 26 percent, greatly facilitating customers’ experience making it an effortless one. Additionally, the 128GB ROM guarantees users a much bigger storage space.


The LAVA R5 has a 6.22-inch IPS LCD HD+ display. R5 feels modern, thanks to the notch at the top.


Beyond that, LAVA R5 employs the industry-leading 10W fast-charging technique to its massive 3260mAh battery, ensuring a much longer usage time and faster charging speed to help users save their time.


In terms of cameras, LAVA R5 also makes significant improvements both on the hardware and software. The 16MP front camera, backed by an excellent 2.0µm-pixel image sensor to absorb more light, and integrated with the advanced portrait lighting mode, easily provides users with a studio-effect portrait.


The R5 comes with 13+5 MP f/2.0 dual rear cameras and a 16MP f/2.0 selfie shooter. The front camera supports the portrait lighting mode with 6 different options.
