As an avid user of the many apps available on Android based smartphones today, one thing that irks most of us greatly is the frequent need to recharge the battery our phone; only to see it lose power within a few hours of operation. We desperately need a phone with a longer battery life, to spare us the need to have a charger on hand every day. That does not sound too bad until you consider the prospect of attempting to find a charging station in a public place (not a ccd – who even goes there these days?). What irritates us even more is that the smartphone makers know this – but are yet to introduce a phone with a larger battery.
Well, looks like someone listened to the impassioned pleas of consumers around the country. Lava is introducing its new Iris Fuel 50 line of smartphones with a massive 3000mAh battery! The company claims it gives around 13 hours of talk time and 360 hours on standby on standard 3G networks. It comes equipped with 1.3 GHz quad core processor (with an unspecified chipset at the time of this writing), 1GB of RAM, and 8 GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 32 GB via a microSD card. It can accommodate two sim cards (GSM+GSM) and the display seems to be a standard 5 inch (480 X 854 pixels) FWVGA IPS display with scratch resistant Asahi Dragon-trail glass. To take those gorgeous selfies the Fuel comes packed with an 8 MP rear-facing camera with dual LED flash, and a front facing 2 MP one. The phone runs on Android 4.4 ‘KitKat’.
While this is all great to thinking – how much is this going to set our bank accounts back? Will the company be abe to offer the device for a retail of Rs. 7799 only! So what are you waiting for? The Lava Iris Fuel 50 launches on Friday for the Indian market, and is available only in black at the moment.
