Lava has launched a new budget phone in India, the Lava O2. The phone is priced at ₹8,499, and it is a rebranded Lava Yuva 3 Pro, launched in December at ₹8,999. So, there are only two differences – the name and the slightly lower price. Moreover, as a part of the special launch offer, Lava is offering a discount of ₹500, bringing the price down to ₹7,999, which sounds like a good deal, considering the specifications.
