Lava debuted today the Icon handset, a 5 inch HD screen device running Android KitKat with a customization called Star OS. The device is priced at $192 and bring some pretty solid specs. Star OS allows users to trigger a variety of functions and apps by using gestures and drawing patterns or letters on the screen.

The phone relies on a 1.3 GHz quad core processor and also comes with 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. There’s a 13 MP main cam at the back with Sony Exmor sensor and dual LED flash, plus F/2.4 aperture.

We’ve got a 5 MP selfie camera with Omni Vision sensor, F/2.4 aperture and BSI II sensor, as well as functions like Face Beauty, Smile Shot and others. This one is a dual SUM unit, with 3G connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 2500 mAh battery, that should deliver 9 hours of talk time.
