Indian smartphone vendor Lava has announced the launch of a new smartphone in its iris Fuel line-up today. Dubbed as Lava iris Fuel 20, the smartphone sports a massive 4400 mAh battery, which the company claims will provide around 42 hours of talk-time. The phone has been priced at INR 5,399 and will go on sale in the coming days.
“At Lava, it is our effort to constantly understand and deliver as per our customer needs. The Lava iris Fuel 20 is designed to meet the needs of users who are heavy smartphone users and are looking for a device with astounding battery life that lets them utilize the phone through the day and more. Iris Fuel 20 is a competitively priced 2G phone that is designed to give buyers a delightful smartphone experience,” said Navin Chawla, Vice President & Head Product, Lava International.
Other specifications of the Lava iris Fuel 20 include 5-inch FWVGA display, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. In addition, the phone packs 5MP shooter on the back, VGA on the front and dual-SIM support.
Fuel 20 runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and features 2G EDGE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity options. There is however no 3G support in the smartphone.
We need phones with great battery capacity and it is a shame that despite providing that, Lava iris Fuel 20 falls short by not offering 3G support.
