Lava International, a famous smartphone manufacturer, has partnered with Doubtnut, a homegrown education technology startup. The partnership aims at providing access to quality education to students through smartphones.
Under the partnership, Lava’s upcoming smartphone will come pre-loaded with the Doubtnut app, providing a free subscription to quality education for students. In addition, students will also get access to Doubtnut’s instant doubt-solving platform.
