The launch of Helium 14 is an important milestone in the journey of Lava as a major Indian smartphone brand. It reiterates our commitment to continued innovation and is a testimony to the fact that we understand consumer needs. It is a handy device for smart business owners, young professionals, and students, enabling them to become more productive while being lighter on the pocket.- Gaurav Nigam, Product Head, Lava International
The Helium 14 will be facing stiff competition from the iBall CompBook and Micromax Ignite or Neo Notebook.That being said 2GB RAM on a Windows 10 powered device is not such a good idea and Lava should have at least offered 4GB as an optional. Design wise the Lava Helium 14 looks premium and is also pretty light at 1.4 kilograms.
