Here’s yet another phone from India, this time the Lava Iris X1 Atom model, a quad core device with Android 4.4 KitKat on board. Its main draw is certainly the price, that’s a mere $71.
The product is an entry level offering, especially considering that 4 inch diagonal. Don’t be bummed out by the presence of KitKat by the way, since Lava has promised to deliver Lollipop to this unit in the coming months. The handset offers a 480 x 800 pixel resolution, a 1.2 GHz quad core processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 1750 mAh battery and 4 GB of storage.
There’s also a microSD card slot in the mix, with support for up to 32 GB extra storage, plus a 5 MP rear camera with a PureCel sensor and an LED flash. Upfront we find a VGA snapper and as far as connectivity is concerned, we’ve got dual SIM slots, 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1. GPS is also here and the X1 Atom brings Smart Swipe gestures, including the likes of Smart View, double tap to wake and Active Shot. The product comes in white silver, black silver and black gold.
