Panasonic has just gone and launched another smartphone in stores in India.
“Another?” You may ask.
Yes – Despite having little market impact against the big guns like Samsung and Apple over here, Panasonic is still making smartphones which in fact have been selling well enough in South East Asia that it warrants another release. This one is the latest addition to the Eluga range – the 5.5-inch Eluga Note costing Rs. 13,290 (just under £150 GBP)
The Panasonic Eluga Note is handy and affordable phablet that offers a generous touchscreen area displaying a full HD resolution at 1080×1920 pixels. Processing is handled by an octa-core CPU clocked at 1.3GHz and the OS of choice is an up-to-date Android 6.0 Marshmallow topped with FitHome UI. The handset comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can be doubled with MicroSD support for a further 32GB.
Another notable feature is the Eluga Note’s mobile data and voice-over-4G connectivity (VoLTE) which is useful for those in the country of release, since 4G/LTE data coverage is starting to really boom over there. 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and an infrared sensor to control other IR compatible devices is also at hand – an interesting addition.
The handset features a pair of cameras, including 16-megapixel rear camera with triple-LED flash and is joined by 5-megapixel front-facing camera and the handset will go the distance thanks to 3000mAh battery.
So, yes – Panasonic is still out there, still making quality affordable smartphones. You might just have to go further afield to find them.
