Taking great pictures is something that people look for in a smartphone, and Lava thinks an even bigger focus should be on just how great your selfies come out. Lava decided to build a phone just for selfie lovers, and went all out with a 5MP front-facing camera along with an LED flash unit packaged with several beauty enhancing modes in an in-built Beauty-fi software and just so that you know what the phone is meant for, it went ahead and named it the Iris X1 Selfie. Featuring a 4.5-inch IPS display has a resolution of 854×480 pixels, the Iris X1 Selfie packs a Mediatek MT6580 SoC which has a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor paired with 1 GB RAM, all of which is powered by a 2,000mAh Li-polymer battery, and out of the box it will run Android Lolipop v5.1. Lava Iris X1 Selfie comes in three colours: Royal Black, Icy White and Purple.
Now let’s talk about camera. The Lava Iris X1 Selfie is aimed at selfie lovers and comes equipped with a 5MP front camera sensor with LED flash that gets you clear, beautifully-lit selfies. Now night-time or low light will never come between you and a dazzling selfie. The company has added Beauty-fi software to make the selfie photo look more beautiful. This means, it allows skin smoothening, skin whitening, teeth whitening, eye-enlargement, skin coloring and so on, before you press the shutter.
Made for group selfies to fit more of what you love into your selfie. More friends? More panorama? Not a problem with the expansive 84-degree wide-angle view.
With 5 MP front camera, Lava Iris X1 Selfie is capable of taking good images in bright light as well as indoors using the flash. The smartphone camera also supports gestures. Pictures can be clicked by making a “V” Gesture with front camera that helps capturing images with victory symbol “V”. Alternatively it also supports voice controlled photo capture methods which assist in clicking pictures by saying “Capture” or “Cheese”. Further, there is a ‘Tap to Capture’ feature which allows users to focus and click images with a single tap.
These photo enhancing options are also available for the rear snapper. The 8MP rear camera comes with a dual LED flash ensures some great images outdoors.
Firstly, the Lava Iris X1 Selfie is an extremely good-looking device. As the name goes, the highlight of the device is its 5MP front-facing camera with flash, which seems to be more interest for people like who like to take tons of selfies. At Rs 6,439, if your primary reason for buying a device is stylish looks and taking selfies, then this one fits the bill right.
