Lava’s promotion of its made in India smartphone(s) is quite similar to the marketing approach taken by Micromax for its In series last year. The company is banking on the rising sentiment against Chinese brands in the country to market its upcoming Made in India smartphone(s). Lava recently launched an entry-level phone called BeU in India with dual cameras and Android 10 Go Edition to boot.
