    The handset is primarily a selfie-focused smartphone and is looking to take on all other in the market that are also looking to tap into the trend. Going through the specs of it once more, the new Lava Iris X5 sports a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen IPS display offering a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
