Remember Lava IRIS X1, the Lava smartphone, which was released with much fanfare in May to take on Motorola’s Moto E smartphone. Within three months of launching the phone, Lava has released a refreshed version of the smartphone to solve the internal storage woes.
The new version is still known as IRIS X1 but comes with 8GB of internal storage, instead of 4GB present in the original variant. The company has also kept the pricing same – INR 7,999.
To remind you, IRIS X1 features a 4.5-inch FWVGA display, 1.2GHz quad-core Broadcom processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.4. The phone also packs 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, and microSD card slot. In addition, Lava has included dual-SIM support, 3G and other usual connectivity options on the phone.
Lava notes that IRIS X1 has been a big seller for the company and has been accounting for 30 percent of the company’s smartphone sales since the release. While more storage surely makes the phone more enticing, the upcoming availability of Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone will surely cut into the X1 sales.
