The domestic handset maker has announced that the Lava Iris 504Q+ follows its predecessor and features gesture controls. The gesture motion feature on the Lava Iris 504Q+ allows users to interact with the phone with just a swipe of the hand in the air for clicking pictures using the voice command feature, changing tracks on the music player and video player, switching between screens, tuning FM channels and browsing entertainment gallery on the smartphone.
The company notes that the Iris 504Q+ comes with a free bundled flip cover in the box. Perhaps the highlight of the device is a 10-megapixel autofocus rear camera, which features an Exmor R sensor with sensor size of 1/3.2 inch and 5P lens module, along with a 1.4 micron pixel size. It also packs a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Lava Iris 504Q+ is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device with dual standby. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box. It comes with a 5-inch (720x1280 pixels) HD IPS OGS (One Glass Solution) display and offers a pixel density of 294ppi.
Much like the Iris 504Q, the Iris 504Q+ is also powered by a quad-core processor (unspecified chipset) though it clocks at a higher speed of 1.3GHz alongside Mali 400 MP2 and 1GB of RAM. The Iris 504Q+ comes with 8GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable up to 32GB via microSD.

It packs a 2000mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 732 hours of standby time, with no word on talk time. The Iris 504Q+ smartphone comes with dimensions 146.7x72.5x7.9mm and weighs 149 grams. It will be available in Grey and Silver colours.
Commenting on the launch Hari Om Rai, Chairman and Managing Director, Lava International Ltd, said, "Iris 504Q+ was developed with an insight based understanding that we got from our consumers after the launch of our popular smartphone Iris 504Q mid last year. We have enhanced the highly popular gesture motion functionality of Iris 504Q by bringing in advanced voice and command control apart from major upgrades in internal memory and camera. Bringing one of the most popular mobile messaging services BBM on our smartphones is yet another effort to expand the ambit of messaging services for our consumers to connect and communicate seamlessly with their loved ones."
