- The Eluga Ray 800 takes on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 in India
- The smartphone offers a 4000mAh battery and a Full HD display
Japanese smartphone maker, Panasonic, today introduced a new smartphone in the Indian market. The Panasonic Eluga Ray 800 is the newest member in the Eluga lineup of phones which is Panasonic’s entry-level and budget series. The Eluga Ray 800 offers decent specifications, but they not on par with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 which will go on sale tomorrow. Panasonic on Tuesday refreshed its Eluga series in India with the Eluga Ray 800 for Rs 9,999. The device is powered by a 1.8GHz octa=core processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory which is expandable up to 128GB.
“The Eluga Ray 800 bundles a number of exciting features such as stylish looks, extended battery life and AI Arbo Hub – our one-stop app to make life easier at an extremely affordable price,” Panasonic India Business Head-Mobility Division Pankaj Rana said in a statement.
A big 4000mAh battery powers the phone that has a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top. The smartphone sports a 13MP Auto Focus (AF) rear camera and an 8MP front camera with flash.
The device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system (OS) and supports features such as the multi-window function. Connectivity options include dual SIM slots (non-hybrid), direct Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Eluga Ray 800 lacks Dual 4G feature which is underwhelming.
