Panasonic is going aggressive in the Indian smartphone market in recent times. The company recently unveiled the Artificial Intelligence Arbo powered Eluga Ray X and Eluga Ray Max smartphones in the mid-range category. And now, they are back with another smartphone called Panasonic Eluga I3 Mega, which will be available only via the Panasonic authorised retail stores across the country.
Priced at Rs. 11,490, the Eluga I3 Mega comes with mid-range specifications, and the highlight of the phone is the 4000mAh battery under-the-hood, which also has support for fast charging technology. This smartphone was spotted on the company’s website some days back and Panasonic today officially launched it along with the pricing.
The Panasonic Eluga I3 Mega comes with an unimetal body, which is another highlight of the phone. It sports a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. The display also has a 2.5D curved glass on top. At the heart of the Eluga I3 Mega is a MediaTek MT6737 SoC with a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, working in tandem with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The memory of the phone is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.
Speaking on the Panasonic Eluga I3 Mega, Pankaj Rana, Business Head, Mobility Division, Panasonic India said, “The full-metal body Eluga I3 Mega is designed to stand out in the crowd and is targeted towards the youth who like to keep it stylish. The powerful smartphone with 4000mAh battery and 5.5-inch display screen will solve the undying issue of college students and professionals who are always on the go.”
This dual-SIM smartphone comes laden with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Panasonic’ skin on top. Also, the Eluga I3 Mega misses out on the Arbo AI engine, which may be exclusive to the Eluga Ray series of phones.
The Eluga I3 Mega has a 13MP rear shooter with PDAF and a LED flash support. Frontal, there’s a 5MP shooter with no support for LED flash. The device has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and GLONASS. The I3 Mega measures 154.6x77x9.4mm and weigh 180 grams. The device will be available in two colour options- Champagne Gold and Silver.
