The Lava Z10 3GB of RAM variant costs Rs. 11,500 and for the asking price, the device will compete with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Huawei Honor 6X, and various other budget smartphones. The Lava Z10 has a 5-inch HD display, with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels, which is also curved by a 2.5D glass.
