Panasonic P31 launched in India for Rs 11,990

By March 8th, 2014 AT 2:21 AM

Panasonic has quietly introduced a budget quad core offering in the country, the P31 for Rs 11,999 which comes with a slew of software functionalities which you don’t usually find in the budget quad core devices. Let us take a look at its specifications:

Panasonic-P31

  • 5 inch capacitive display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels
  • 1.3 GHz quad core Mediatek processor which powers almost every other budget device in the country
  • 8GB internal memory which can be expanded via a microSD card by another 32GB
  • 1GB RAM
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • Play Life interface which gets Gesture Play, Draw-to-unlock, Pop-i Player which lets you multitask while watching videos, Music café and Ultimate Saver which helps improve battery life. You get Heat-Sink functionality too which reduces the temperature of the device courtesy of controlled heat dissipation.
  • 8MP rear camera with support for 1080p videos which gets coupled with a VGA front camera
  • Dual SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS
  • White and Dark Blue colours
  • Rs 11,990

Panasonic is offering a slew of freebies with the device which total up to worth Rs 10,390 and will go on sale starting next week. Panasonic would have nailed it completely with a 720p screen but the slew of software functionalities and freebies make up for that. It will surely prove to be a worthy competitor in the sub Rs 15,000 budget quad core arena.

Panasonic P51 is a good smartphone which I am using. I purchased it presuming it to be Japanese manufactured. Later on I found on the the net that it is a rebranded smartphone manufactured by Alcatel model ‘OneTouch HD’ made in China. Feel very cheated by Panasonic. Now they have launched P31, God knows who is the original manufacturer!!!!

@ranjith *I dont find anything wrong in that,even local companies like Micromax,Karbonn,Lava Xolo etc all are re-branders and none of them have their own factories or R and D labs to produce or make smartphones. *Most of the local companies buy products from China,rebrand them and sell it as their own. *Panasonics stratergy makes sense from an economical point of view too. *See setting up a manufacturing firm,investing in R and D etc,paying workers,enigneers requires a hell lot of money. *The smartphone market is already ultra-competitive and Panasonic cannot risk setting up a factory,R and D lab and make smartphones… Read more »

Thanks Rama agree with you …local brands have some r&d ..it may be true ..but quality wise its good for what we actually pay for it …common people don’t consider the facts which you pointed out there . ..I saw some people they don’t even no what is mega pixel ..and the market is so wide …may premium consumer can afford apple or HTC (high end models ) .. Do check iris pro 30 , canvas 4, xolo q1100 etc ..which were sell under 15k ..but this kind of models seems to be of well built and good quality when… Read more »
