New Lava IRIS smartphones now available in India

Lava has started selling three new smartphones in the country recently. Part of the company’s IRIS series, these smartphones are IRIS 356, 402, and 349+. All three smartphones are now available at online retailer Flipkart.

Talking about the specific smartphones, Lava IRIS 356 features 3.5-inch HVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.2 and dual-SIM support. Other specifications of the phone include 1.3MP rear camera, 256MB RAM and 512MB of internal storage. IRIS 356 has been priced at INR 4,199.


On the other hand, Lava IRIS 402 comes with 4-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.2 and 3MP rear camera. The phone also features 256MB RAM, 512MB of internal storage, and 1500 mAh battery. IRIS 402 is being sold at INR 5,199.

Coming to Lava IRIS 349+, the smartphone sports a 3.5-inch HVGA display, 1GHz processor, 256MB of RAM and Android 2.3. The phone also comes with 1,400 mAh battery, dual-SIM support and 256MB of RAM and 2MP rear camera. IRIS 349+ has got a price-tag of INR 3,499.

Lava seems to be banking a lot of the budget smartphone segment, especially on the first time smartphone buyers. While, the specifications of the new smartphones seem fine on paper, just 256MB of RAM looks worrisome and is likely to create performance issues.
