Lava has today launched a new budget Android phone – The Lava Iris X1 Atom, running Android 4.4 KitKat and priced at just 4,444 INR.
Lava might not be grabbing all the headlines, but in tier 2 circles, the domestic manufacturer is raking in good numbers thanks to its pocket friendly iris series smartphones for first time android users, looking for basic smartphone functionality.
Specs are fairly standard ones. There is a 4 Inch WVGA (800 x 480) pixel display with 1.2 GHz quad core chipset (MT6589?) with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage. You can also plugin 32 GB MicroSD card slot and click images from 5 MP rear shooter or front VGA camera.
Other features include 3G, dual-SIM, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi and 1750 mAh battery. Before you netizens reject and label it a blast from 2013, there is more. Lava has guaranteed Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Iris X1 Atom.
Hardware seems good enough for the price tag, but by spending a tad bit more, you can also grab one of the tried and tested Android One smartphone. Design is similar to what we are used to seeing on other Iris series devices launched in past few months.
