Domestic smartphone maker Lava has launched a new smartphone, the Iris Fuel 20 featuring a massive 4400mAh battery, which is the second largest smartphone battery in the country after Gionee Marathon M3 comes with a 5000mAh battery.
The company says, “This is the second biggest smartphone battery available in the country today.” The Lava Iris Fuel 20 has been priced at Rs. 5,399 and will be available to buy starting next week in Metallic Grey and White color via retail stores and e-commerce websites.
The Lava Iris Fuel 20 comes with dual-SIM support, runs Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box and features a 5-inch (480×854 pixels) FWVGA display.
The handset is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core (unspecified chipset) processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. It bears 4GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB) and sports a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash along with a secondary 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
Unfortunately, the Lava Iris Fuel 20 doesn’t supports 3G connectivity, which might be the biggest let-down of the handset, other connectivity options on include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB, and Bluetooth.
Commenting at the launch, Navin Chawla, Vice President and Head Product, Lava International Ltd. said, “The Lava Iris Fuel 20 is designed to meet the needs of users who are heavy smartphone users and are looking for a device with astounding battery life that lets them utilize the phone through the day and more.
