Lava has announced the new Iris X series of smartphones for India, which seems to feature the latest version as a selling point, as the first model - the Iris X1 - runs Android 4.4.2 Jelly Bean. The company has detailed few specifications of the Iris X1, though did say the sub-Rs. 8,000 smartphone is set to be released in the next few days.
So far, not too many details are known about the yet-to-be launched Lava Iris X1, which is one of the few domestic branded smartphones to feature a KitKat. Lava has also announced the Iris X1 features a 4.5-inch IPS display and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
