"Currently, Lava Iris X1 is one of the few devices in India and the first one from Lava that is built on the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box platform," Lava International said in a statement.

KitKat platform offers faster multi-tasking through optimized memory and improved touch responsiveness. It also comes with a bunch of new features like its phone application automatically prioritizes contacts based on the people a user talks to the most and its caller ID looks for matches from businesses with local listing on Google Maps.
"It is for the consumers who not only want a high performance device but also a beautiful design. We are confident that the latest hardware and software features coupled with its great design will surely deliver a rich experience to the consumers," Lava International Chairman and Managing Director Hari Om Rai said.
The 4.5 inch phone comes with 8 mega pixel camera, 4 GB of internal memory that is expandable up to 32 GB via micro-SD card, dual SIM with 3G connectivity and 1800 mAh battery.
The phone will be available online exclusively on Amazon.in from May 27 and also across national retail chain stores and multi-brand outlets pan India.
