Apart from this, the smartphone has a 'Tap to Capture' feature which apparently allows its users to focus and click images with a single tap.

The Lava Iris X1 Selfie smartphone also sports the smile detection feature for both front & rear camera and offers various modes such as HDR, Burst, Panorama and Image watermark. Full HD Video recording is also available on preview screen.

Coming to the other specifications of the smartphones, it features a 4.5 inch IPS display protected by Asahi Dragontrail Glass while being powered by a MediaTek MT6580 SoC which has a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor paired with 1 GB RAM.

On the storage front, you would be getting 8 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32 GB via the microSD card slot.

The smartphone runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system and draws power from a 2,000 mAH battery.
