There is no official word on the launch details of the Lava Iris 400Q; however, we expect that the company will announce the handset in coming days.
The Lava Iris 400Q features a 4-inch (480x800 pixels) WVGA TFT display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor that's coupled with 1GB of RAM. It comes with dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) support.
The smartphone features 4GB of built-in storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 32GB). It features a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Connectivity options on the Lava Iris 400Q include 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB, GPS/ A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and FM radio.
It is backed by a 1700mAh battery, which the HomeShop18 listing notes can deliver 9 hours of talk time and 153 hours of standby time. The Iris 400Q is available in Grey colour.
Lava's new budget Iris 400Q will be up against the likes of some popular smartphones in the sub-Rs. 8,000 category such as the Asus ZenFone 4 A450CG, which went on sale by August-end via online retail partner Flipkart, priced at Rs. 6,999, and the well-liked Moto E, priced at Rs. 6,999 that did sell in the market like hot-cakes.
Earlier this week, Lava in a bid to cash-in on the selfie-trend launched the Iris X5 at Rs. 8,799. It will be exclusively available to purchase on Amazon India.
