It’s not every day that we get to see a beautiful looking smartphone like the Lava Icon go official, especially one that doesn’t break the bank. The new launch has quite the stunning design and it will not cost you a premium as the official retail price is just Rs 11990.
The Indian OEM has revealed some pretty attractive smartphones over the months, the Iris X8 and Iris X1 to name a few, but none come close to the sleek look on the Lava Icon. According to the company, the handset features a complete metallic design and it looks like the front and back panel have both been coated with a glass finish.
And while the majority of the body is sprayed in black, the side trims flaunt a golden shade. The Lava smartphone is just 7.7mm thick and it tips the scales back by 143 grams. Where hardware is concerned, the handset is a mid-range option at its best. The biggest downside here is that it comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and there’s no mention of whether it will receive an update to Lollipop.
The usual 1.3GHz quad core MediaTek processor powers up the Icon smartphone and memory provisions are pretty good with 16GB of internal storage and 2GB RAM. The handset also has a 2500mAh battery which can deliver nearly 9 hours of 3G talk time.
