The device features a 5-inch FWVGA IPS LCD display, an 8-megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash, and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. The device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, thanks to a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage space, and a microSD card slot as well.
The device is a bigger sibling of the Lava Iris Fuel F1 mini, and will compete with the likes of the Micromax Canvas Juice 3, the Intex Aqua Power II, and the Karbonn Aura 9. All these competing smartphones have larger capacity batteries and lie largely in the same price category. In this day and age, it lacks 4G LTE connectivity, and a lot of consumers might skip buying this device for that reason.
