Lava has launched its first Andrid 5.0 Lollipop running smartphone, dubbed as Iris Alfa L, though it won’t be running Lava’s proprietary Star OS, which debuted with the new company flagship, Lava Icon, a few weeks ago. Getting down from the Lollipop high horse, other specs are pretty standard stuff.

The phablet sized 5.5 Inch display features quarter HD 960 x 540 pixel resolution, which means it won’t be very sharp, owing to the low Pixel per inches. Lava is using fairly standard chipset with MT6582M quad core clocked at 1.3 GHz, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB expandable internal storage.

Dual SIM Iris Alfa L has an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and an elementary VGA front camera for selfies. A notable highlight is 3000 mAh battery under the hood, to drive large sized display and quad core chipset efficiently.

Iris Alfa L is neither slim nor light with a 9.35 mm chassis tipping the scale at 165 grams. Other features include 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.

The phone comes with trendy android flavor, but apart from that, carries on with the same trite hardware from last year smartphones. Lava Iris Alfa L has been priced at 8,000 INR and Lava will also be selling flip covers for another 399 INR. You can choose from White and Metallic grey color options.
