Lava Iris Fuel series is known for the battery capacity, and Lava continues that as there are two devices launched in the Budget smartphone market in India – the Lava Iris Fuel 10, and Lava Iris Fuel 25. These two budget devices come with basic specs and the fact that they are in a series that is more about batteries, they both come with a 3000 mAh battery packed in.
According to Lava, the battery will be able to provide 14 hours of continuous 3G talk time, 6.5 hours video playback and 60 hours music playback time using earphones.

It is a BSI+ Sensor, and for the front camera, there is a dedicated selfie button on the back of the phone, while the gesture controls include voice controlled image capture.

While it is on KitKat version right now, the company says it will receive Android Lollipop update very soon. It is priced at Rs. 6541.

The internal storage is 4GB and it thankfully has a MicrOSD card slot for storage expansion, up to 32GB.
Even the Fuel 25 comes with Android 4.4 KitKat but there is no information about the future updates on this. The Fuel 25 is available for Rs. 5,666.
