Lava International Ltd. unveiled today a new member to its “Iris X” series priced at Rs 8,999 and pitted directly to face the fire power of Redmi Note and Yu Yureka. While it will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart from 9th Feb, it will also be available on offline stores across India.
Key Features of Lava Iris X8
- 5-inch IPS display
- 720 x 1280 pixel resolution
- Asahi glass protection
- 1.4GHz octa-core MediaTek (MT6592M) processor
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB Internal storage; expandable
- Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, upgradable to Lolipop
- 8 megapixel rear camera with Dual LED flash, Auto focus and BSI-III sensor
- 3-MP front camera
- 2500mAh battery
The Lava Iris X8 measures 143.4×70.9×8.6mm, weighs 160 grams, and will be available in Black and White colour. It houses sensors such as accelerometer, ambient light sensor, magnetometer, and proximity sensor. The camera features include full HD Video recording and digital zoom with built in auto-focus, panorama, HDR mode, face detection, smile shot and voice capture.
The Iris X8 also comes with a smart flip cover that allows users to access certain apps like music, camera, calling, messaging and few other functions directly without the need to get into the homescreen.
X8 faces tough challenges from the likes of Redmi Note 4G and Yu Yureka, both available in the similar price point but offers 4G connectivity which the X8 doesn’t support. It is exciting time for Indian buyers who are spoilt for choice in the sub-10,000 segment.
