Indian tech vendor Lava International will soon launch a smartphone with gesture based features. The soon to be announced handset will be a part of popular Iris range. The device is expected to be officially launched in the third week of June.
According to Lava mobiles, users have to use handset front facing camera to operate the phone. Well, few days back the South Korean giant announced Galaxy S4 which comes with Air Gesture feature. The response so far has been phenomenal. However, many critics panned Samsung's attempt by saying ‘Cheap gimmick ‘.
The company didn't mention what exactly goes inside the device in terms of specifications. It is said to be powered by the latest version of Android mobile OS. Recently, Lava announced India's first Android 4.2 Jelly Bean based tablet.
So, the forthcoming handset should be powered by Android 4.2 Jelly bean. Further, the upcoming Lava Iris smartphone will likely to use OGS technology. It's the same display technology used to manufacture handsets under XOLO brand. Lava remained tight lipped on the pricing.
Lava recently launched a budget centric quad-core phone called Iris 458 q. It packs a 4.5-inch FWVGA display , 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, an 8MP rear camera, VGA quality front facing camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 3G, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth 3.0 , and a 2000mAh battery inside. It has been priced at Rs. 8999 in the Indian market.
