Lava, the budget Indian smartphone manufacturer, has just launched the Iris Icon smartphone in India for Rs. 11,990 (MRP). The device has a 5-inch HD display and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. It is probably from the stable of MediaTek like majority of the budget smartphones.

It has a 13-megapixel rear camera with a dual-LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front camera. It comes with support for a lot of gestures, which lets users draw over the lock-screen as shortcuts to open pre-set apps. It is available from Snapdeal for Rs. 11,499 (MOP), and comes with a free selfie stick for the first 500 customers.
