Lava Mobiles has got a new definition of budget Android with the launch of their Iris 506q expanding the Iris series further ahead. After Lava Iris 504q, they have launched a new device in the market today on 18 September 2013 which will be called as the Lava Iris 506q.
Unlike the 504q, 506q also packs a MediaTek Chipset MT6589 with 4GB internal memory and 1GB RAM. Lava downgrades the camera to 5MP rear auto focus in Iris 506q which was 8MP on Iris 504q but supports 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth. It offers a great viewing experience with its 5 inch QHD IPS screen with OGS display technology. More specifications are detailed below.

Pricing and Availability
Lava Iris 506q is priced at Rs. 10,999 and will be available from online retailers and retail shops across the country. We think that this device could really sell well if what the users want is a decent Android performance. Camera on this handset is compromised for the cost. Lava Iris 504q should be considered as an option if the budget can be increased to 3k more because it packs a decent camera.
