There has been a lot of new devices launching in the budget segment, and many Indian, as well as Chinese companies, have started to focus on the segment to target the mass market. Panasonic is one such company that has huge plans for the country and has been consistently launching smartphones for the budget price range. The latest one to join the collection is the Panasonic Eluga Note.
The term ‘Note’ was made popular by Samsung with their note series smartphone that paved a way for the new category of phablets. Going the similar lines, Panasonic announced their Eluga Note with 5.5-inch display on the front that has a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with FitHome UI on top.
An octa-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz powers the Panasonic Eluga Note; the exact make of the processor is unknown. The device comes with 3 GB of RAM capacity and 32 GB of internal storage, which is further expandable up to 32 GB using a microSD card. It is a dual SIM device with 4G connectivity and VoLTE. The phone also has an infrared sensor, besides other connectivity options.
A 16 MP sensor sits on the back and has a unique triple LED flash. The sensor houses 6P lens and has an aperture of f/1.9 to ensure better low light photos and can record 1080p videos. The front camera is of 5 MP and has 4P lens. The battery capacity of the device is 3000 mAh, that seems optimum going by today’s standards.
It will be available only in champagne gold colour at a price of Rs. 13,290 from all the retail channels in India.
