Indian OEM Lava Mobiles is about to debut another affordable Android smartphone in India, the Lava Iris 450 Colour. The smartphone has yet to be officially introduced in the country, but the company has already listed the device on its website.
As Mobigyaan points out, the reason behind this smartphone’s name is the fact that it comes in multiple color options, such as Blue, Tan Brown, Raspberry Pink, Ivory White, and Pro Black.
There’s no word on price tag or exact release date, but we expect more details to emerge in the next couple of days, so stay tuned for more details on this one.
Specs-wise, the Lava Iris 450 is a low- to mid-range Android smartphone and is far from being impressive even for an affordable handset. In fact, the only way the mobile phone might stand out is thanks to its bright colors.
In this regard, Lava confirmed that its Iris 450 Colour comes equipped with a 1.3GHz dual-core processor, which is probably provided by MediaTek.
There are only 512MB of RAM inside and 4GB (2.43 GB for the user) of storage, but users will be able to further expand internal memory up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
Even though the 512MB of RAM are enough to run the Android operating system, there are lots of games and apps that require at least 1GB of RAM in order to run smoothly.
The large enough 4.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display only supports FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution, which is understandable for an affordable smartphone.
According to Lava, its affordable Android smartphone is powered by an 1800 mAh battery, which should provide up to 9 hours of talk time (8.5 hours in 3G mode).
Another interesting trait about the phone is the fact that it offers dual-SIM capability (dual standby). Other connectivity options available for Lava Iris 450 Colour include 3G and Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm audio jack, Wi-Fi, and microUSB.
Last but not least, Lava Iris 450 Colour has been confirmed to ship with the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box.
Obviously, the handset will never receive a major software update, so users will be stuck on this version of Android until the phone eventually gets discontinued.
