Keeping its promise of launching smartphones under Rs. 15,000, the company has launched a new smartphone in the country, dubbed as Panasonic Eluga A4. Priced at Rs 12,490, the Eluga A4 is an offline-only model and customers can purchase the device in Panasonic authorised retail stores across the country starting today.
The highlight of the Panasonic Eluga A4 is the 5000mAh battery under the hood. In recent times, Panasonic has been launching smartphones with different USPs such as dual cameras and the Eluga A4 is a battery-centric smartphone joining the likes of Eluga Ray 700. That said, the Eluga A4 is the successor to Eluga A3 (first impressions), which the company launched earlier this year.
Coming to other specifications of the Eluga A4, it comes with a 5.2-inch HD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. At the heart of the phone, there's a quad-core chipset with a clock speed of 1.25GHz. The chipset is mated to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card slot.
Cameras in the Panasonic Eluga A4 include a 13MP rear camera, coupled with an LED flash. Up front, Panasonic has added a 5MP sensor for selfies and video calls. The Eluga A4 comes with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and it also comes with Panasonic's ARBO personal assistant.
Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, micro USB port for charging and data transfer, and a USB OTG.
Panasonic has launched a slew of smartphones in recent times. Back in August 2017, Panasonic has stated that it will launch 15 smartphones below Rs. 15,000. At the same time, Panasonic also expanded its retail presence in the country by partnering with more retail store partners. The Panasonic Eluga A4 has a real competitor in the form of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Motorola Moto G5S and both the phones offer better specifications than the Eluga A4.
