Priced at Rs.4,249 and Rs.4,899, respectively, Iris Atom and Iris Atom 3 are designed to meet the needs of first time smartphone users who strive for a good-looking device with big display and a smooth android experience, a company statement said.

Key features of the phones include 1.3 GHz Quad Core Processor, 8GB internal memory further expandable up to 32GB, 512 MB RAM, Android Lollipop- 5.1 operating system, Smart Gesture Control, 5MP rear camera and powerful 1550 mAh Li-ion battery in Iris Atom and 2000 mAh Li-ion battery in Iris Atom 3

Iris Atom features a 10.16 cm display with WVGA 800X480 resolution, while Iris Atom 3 features a 12.7 cm display with FWVGA 854X480 resolution.

The 5MP rear camera in both devices is equipped with modes like panoramic capture and HDR that allows you to click pictures in High Definition. The front camera is 2MP in Iris Atom 3 and VGA in Iris Atom.

Both devices support smart gesture control features that allow a user to launch applications from locked screen.

Iris Atom 3 with its enhanced features offers a lot more. The video PIP feature allows users to multitask (web browsing, messaging) while playing a video in the background.
