lava-iris-pro-20

Earlier this year, Lava launched the Iris Pro 30, the first smartphone in its Iris Pro premium range of smartphones. Today the Indian smartphone vendor has launched the second device in this series called the Iris Pro 20 with a price tag of Rs 13,999.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Iris Pro 20 sports a 4.7-inch qHD (960×540 pixels), built using One Glass Solution (OGS) and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core SoC paired with 1GB of RAM. Also included is 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.

The smartphone also features an 8-megapixel camera at the back, supplemented by a VGA camera at the front, and a 2,000mAh battery that the company claims will survive 7.5 hours of talktime. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.

At this price segment, the Iris Pro 20 will be up against the likes of the Xolo Q900, Lenovo S820 and the Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini A200 among others. It has one big disadvantage though when compared to the competition — where other devices flaunt a 720p HD display, the Iris Pro 20 is stuck with a qHD display.

The Xolo Q900 is much cheaper with a price tag of Rs 10,199, yet it offers similar specifications as well as a 720p display and a better front camera (2-megapixel). The Lenovo S820 offers more internal storage (8GB) as well as a better set of cameras (12-megapixel/2-megapixel). And finally, the Canvas Turbo Mini A200 which too flaunts a 720p display, has a slightly better clock speed (1.3GHz), a much better front camera (5-megapixel) and is also a bit lighter on the pockets (Rs 12,599).
