Lava has just announced a new handset for India with the Lava Iris X1 Atom S. It is another device in the ever expanding X lineup, and the Lava Iris X1 Atom S price puts it in squarely in the mid range sector. The Lava Iris X1 Atom S is the follow-up to a device of the same name that was released earlier this year sans the S. That extra digit generally means an upgrade, but that’s not the case with the X1 Atom S as it is a slightly dumbed down version of the previous handset.




The dual-SIM Lava Iris X1 Atom S runs Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, and features 3G connectivity the highlight of the smartphone at this price point. Sporting a 4 inch 480×800 pixel TFT display, the smartphone is powered by a 1GHz single-core processor unspecified chipset coupled with 512MB of RAM.

The comparison to the Lava Iris X1 Atom that came before it, the Lava Iris X1 Atom S has a weaker processor and slightly smaller battery. Everything else is largely the same aside from the Lava Iris X1 Atom S price. It’s a bit cheaper than the previous version at Rs. 4,149, and it’s available in Black or White if you’re looking to pick one up.
