Lava Mobiles has bought forth another low cost dual SIM handset the Lava Iris 354e that comes powered by 1GHz dual core processor, sports a 3.5 inch touch screen and is priced at just Rs. 3,415. The handset is listed on flipkart with the price tag but not yet available.
The Lava Iris 354e is an upgraded version of the lava Iris 352e. In fact most of the specifications are the same; however the handset design is different. There are few improvements on the 354e handset, for example the 2GB internal storage as compared to 512MB on 352e.
The Iris 354e comes powered by 1GHz dual core processor probably with the same chipset as seen on the 352e i.e. 1GHz MT6572 with Mali 400 GPU. The handset sports a 3.5 inch screen with 480×320 pixels resolution (262K colors). Android 4.2 runs the show with 256MB RAM, 1.25GB internal storage of the 2GB ROM and external card support of up to 32GB.
It is a dual SIM handset with dual standby mode. A 0.3MP front camera and a 2MP rear camera is also included. It is mentioned that the handset can record 720p videos but I doubt if it can. This handset is 11.8mm thick and weight is 103 grams.
Key features are 2G (EDGE/GPRS), Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. There is built in FM radio receiver. A 1400 mAh battery gives talk time of up to 6 hours and standby time of up to a week.
Lava Iris 354e available for Rs. 3,415 is a better option than the 352e.
