Lava Launches Iris Icon, A Mid-Range Phone with 5 Inch Display & 13 MP Rear Camera At Rs 11,499

Lava has just announced a new Android smartphone in mid budget range with some decent hardware configuration. Keeping up with their legacy of Iris series,  Iris Icon houses a 5 inch 720P display, 229 PPI protected by ASAHI Dragontrail Glass material to safeguard from scratches.  What I really liked about the phone is its thin 7.7 mm metallic finish which makes it look premium and fits for its name.

A lot of OEMs are not adopting many other processors apart from Snapdragon and Lava has done the same with the Icon. It is powered by  Quad core ARM Mali 400 MP2 processor. To make sure you have enough memory to do what you want,  the phone includes  2GB RAM.

Those who love to take pictures, camera MP has been ever increasing. This phone holds a 13MP Sony EXMOR image sensor rear camera, aperture of f2.0.. The phone has a DUAL LED Flash. Those love to take selfies, it includes a 5 MP front camera. To make sure your photos don’t need a SD card, the phone comes with 16 GB of internal storage.  Both the features here are attractive.

Lolipop is still miles away for all Android phones, and its no surprise that this phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat.  It is a dual SIM phone with 3 G Support. Those who want to get a 4G phone, I am sure by the time you will be ready to buy a new phone.

This 2500 mAh powered phone costs 11,499 making it very close to Lumia 640. Lava is also trying to attract consumers by adding a Selfie Stick which works over bluetooth but is only available for first 500 consumers. You can grab this offer at Snapdeal.
