India-based smartphone vendor Lava has already released a couple of new handsets in the native market last month. Just few days back the company also released its Iris 406Q at Rs 6,999. Almost all the devices that the company has launched this year basically falls in low-to-mid-range price.
Yet again the company has started teasing another affordable device by the name of Iris X1. However, Lava has not revealed any specs of the device but has only teased the price of the Iris X1. The company has announced that it will be priced ‘under Rs 8,000′.
Obviously, Lava's new offering, which is yet to become official will come powered by Google's Android operating system. Moreover, there are rumors that Android KitKat 4.4.2 would be the version used in it. There are very less number of Indian smartphones, which comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS.
Other specs according to the online reports consist of 4.5-inch display and 8MP rear camera. Also a front facing camera would be present in the handset. Indian smartphone brands never forget to offer India's most liked feature- Dual SIM support in the device, thus you can expect a dual SIM support and a 3G support as well.
Since a number of handsets at the same price range are being launched in India, Lava might face bit of a problem in terms of competition. Nokia's recently announced Lumia 630 with a dual SIM support which comes at the price of Rs. 11,500 is not a bad deal. And Nokia is also offering the latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS in the handset. Even more competitive is what Motorola is launching in India today- the Moto E.
