Alongside the Celkon Campus Mini A350, another budget smartphone went official in India yesterday, the Lava Iris 360 Music.
The Lava Iris series is best known for the Iris X1, a quad-core smartphone that enjoyed an extensive TVC campaign. The Iris 360 isn’t nearly as powerful, but costs about half the amount.
The Iris 360 is launched for 3,849 INR, or $63 making it about as affordable as the Campus Mini A350. The Iris 360, however, does not feature Android KitKat, and also comes with a slower processor – a 1GHz dual-core, versus the 1.3GHz dual-core on the Campus MIni A350.
- 3.5-inch 320 x 480p display
- 1GHz dual-core CPU
- 512MB RAM
- 4GB expandable ROM
- 3 mega-pixel rear camera
- VGA front camera
- 1400mAh battery
- Android v4.2 Jelly Bean
It borrows a bit of its styling from the 10x (or more) costlier HTC One M8, a smartphone that’s inspired more local vendors than we can remember. What’s good is that Lava have also imitated the dual front speakers, which we aren’t sure are stereo or not.
The 3,849 INR or $63 worth Lava Iris 360 Music can be had in Black, Grey and White colours.
