Lava Mobiles may soon launch the Iris X5 handset in India. This dual SIM handset with a 5 inch screen could be priced at under Rs. 8000. The latest import data by Zauba reveals some units were imported on 14th August.
Lava imported about 20 Lava Iris X5 units most likely for internal testing. The import data however reveals limited info – like the screen which is of 5 inches and internal storage of 8GB. It is a dual SIM handset (GSM+GSM).
The current trend for budget friendly smartphones is dual core / quad core with 5 inch screen (or less) and running KitKat out of the box. Let us wait and see what the Iris X5 is about. It could take few days to weeks, probably month or two for it to unveil.
For now in the under Rs. 10,000 price range the Asus Zenfone 5, Moto G, Moto E, Iris X1, Colours 2 and Unite 2 are doing pretty well. The Moto G however is a little pricy though. Many users were waiting for my review on the zenfone 5, I have ordered one and will get it by Friday, and you can expect the review on Monday.
