A couple of weeks back, Lava revealed that it would be launching its first selfie smartphone. Today, the Indian smartphone vendor has launched the Iris X5 with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone priced at Rs 8,799 is available on Amazon India as well as retail stores across the country.

The Iris X5’s USP is its 5-megapixel BSI+ Auto Focus front-facing camera with a wide angle lens and an LED flash. At the back, it has an 8-megapixel primary camera.

The smartphone also features a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Also included is 8GB internal storage that can be further expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card, and a 2,100mAh battery.

Connectivity options include dual-SIM connectivity, 3G support, Bluetooth 3.0, and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.

This trend of smartphones with 5-megapixel front-facing camera has seen Karbonn launching the Titanium S19 selfie smartphone in India for Rs 8,999. Microsoft is expected to unveil the Lumia 730 Windows Phone smartphone, and Xiaomi too will soon be launching the Redmi Note phablet, which is priced at Rs 9,999.
