Lava has launched a slightly cheaper variant of its Iris X1 Atom
handset that was launched in April
this year, called the Iris X1 Atom S, at Rs. 4,149. The smartphone has been listed on the company site with price in Black and White colour variants, but Lava
has yet to detail exact availability - though we can expect it to hit markets soon.
The dual-SIM Lava Iris X1 Atom S
runs Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, and features 3G connectivity - the highlight of the smartphone at this price point. Sporting a 4-inch (480x800 pixel) TFT display, the smartphone is powered by a 1GHz single-core processor (unspecified chipset) coupled with 512MB of RAM.
