Lava MyZ Program Unveiled the World First Customizable Smartphone

Alongside the new Z -series, Lava also launched the MyZ program. The company boasts that it now offers the “world’s first customizable smartphone.” This allows you to customize the internal specifications of the smartphone to your liking. You can customize your unit by selecting from options in five categories: rear camera, front camera, RAM, ROM and color.

It sounds exciting, but the reality is that this is more of a gimmick. You get pretty limited options, e.g. for the rear camera you can choose between 13MP + 5MP + 2MP or 13MP + 2MP. And that limits the choices you have after.

The top-specced configuration is identical to the Lava Z6, except it costs INR 10,700. That comes with 128GB of storage, though, double what the Z6 gets.

You also get some additional flexibility if you’re not aiming for the top. You can configure a Z2-like phone with 6/128 GB memory or a 16MP front camera (or both). Or you can drop to 2GB of RAM, which also switches the OS to Android Go.
