Indian smartphone maker Lava has listed a new entry-level smartphone on its official website. Dubbed as the Iris 401, the latest entry-level smartphone in the Iris series is quite uncompetitive, in terms of specs.
Although, the Lava Iris 401 comes in Black and Blue color variants and are listed on the official site, the company has not revealed the pricing and availability of the device at the moment.
Lava Iris 401: Key Specifications
The Lava Iris 401 comes with a 4-inch capacitive touch screen display offering a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor coupled with 256MB RAM. It runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).
The latest offering from Lava is a low-end device which houses 512MB of internal memory, which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.
The Dual SIM smartphone with dual standby mode also uses a 3MP camera with LED flash to take pictures and a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing shooter to take selfies.
The Lava Iris 401 which measures 126x65x10.35 mm in dimension also employs 2G (EDGE) , WiFi 802.11 b/g/n nad Bluetooth with A2DP as connectivity options and is powered by a 1450 mAh battery.
There are several things that Lava has not offered in this phone. Especially, the most important things that are missing in the phone are the 3G connectivity and Android KitKat support. The device also comes with a very less RAM, internal memory and the operating system i.e. Android is also an older version of Jelly Bean.
Thus, the new smartphone from Lava will have to face a bit of difficulty in the Indian market. Anyway, Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
