Indian manufacturer Lava Mobiles is reportedly planning to launch Android handsets - Iris 402 and 356, in the market soon.
The new devices - Iris 402 and Iris 356, are listed on Lava's official page with price-tags ₹5,499 and ₹4,499, respectively. Details regarding the availability of these two handsets in the market are still under wraps.
Lava Iris 402 sports a WVGA multi-finger capacitive with 480x800p resolution and packs 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 256 RAM and 512 MB ROM which can be expanded by up to 32GB via microSD card. It houses a 3.0-megapixel camera with flash support on the front side and a VGA camera on the front side.
Apart from a smaller screen form and sub-par camera specifications, Iris 356 features similar internal components such as chipsets, RAM, storage and battery capacity as that of its expensive sibling, Iris 402.
One striking feature of these two devices is that they run on the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean OS out-of-the-box, which makes them one of the very few budget phones to feature the new mobile OS version. The only other device in the market to ship with this Android operating system version is Intex Cloud X3. It made its debut only a few days ago with a price-tag of ₹3,790.
