Lava has unveiled its new X-series smartphone in India, the X41+. Priced at Rs. 8,999, the handset is now listed on the company's site and can be expected to be available via retail channels soon.
The Lava X41+ features a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for protection and a pixel density of 294ppi.
The dual-SIM smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box and supports 4G, but only on one SIM card at a time. It supports 4G LTE bands in India - FDD-LTE Band 3 (1800MHz), Band 5, and TDD-LTE Band 40 (2300MHz). Lava claims that the X41+ supports LTE Cat. 4 with download speeds of up to 150Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50Mbps. The smartphone also supports VoLTE (voice over LTE) with HD voice call compatibility, a highlight of the handset.
It sports an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, and also a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. The Lava X41+ packs 32GB of built-in storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 32GB).
Backed by a 2500mAh battery, the handset offers connectivity options including GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot functionality, Bluetooth, FM radio, Micro-USB, and GPS. The smartphone will be available in Black and Gold. It measures 145x71.2x8.8mm and weighs 154 grams.
