Lava likely to launch second gen Android One phone on July 27

Earlier this month ET reported that Google is planning to introduce second gen of Android One smartphones. For this Google is partnering with Lava International.

Now, Lava has sent out invites for an event on July 27, where the brand is likely to launch the second gen Android One handset. The caption in the invite reads Witness the Power of the one that will never grow old, will respect your privacy, will keep you powered longer and will help you create memories

ET also reported that Lava's Android One phone will feature 5-inch display, MediaTek SoC and 2GB RAM. A Lava handset dubbed Iris X5 4G with same specs appeared on GFXbench, which is likely to be Lava's Android One handset. 

As per the listing the Iris X5 4G features 5-inch display, powered by 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor with Mali-T720 GPU and 2GB RAM, 16GB on-board storage, microSD card slot, 13MP/5MP cameras, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and 4G LTE support. 

One of the biggest change in second gen Android One handset is that OEMs like Lava will have complete say in deciding the hardware and software inside the phone. OEMs who are part of this initiative won't be forced to pick up devices from device makers in China and sell them as their own, resulting in greater control over hardware and software.

Lava's Android One handset is expected to be priced around Rs. 12,000.
