Panasonic has come up with yet another smartphone under its Eluga series, named as the Panasonic Eluga Prim. The phone is priced at Rs. 10,290 and will be up for sale in Gold and Gun Metal Silver colour options.
Surprisingly, the Panasonic Eluga Prim bears a 5-inch HD IPS 2.5D curved Asahi Glass display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. At a price of over 10k, we wonder why Panasonic included just a 720p HD display when phones under the budget of 10k are coming with full HD 1080p displays. The Eluga Prim supports 4G with Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Commenting on the launch, Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said,“The Eluga Prim is a great example of the combination of style and security. We at Panasonic believe in not only great software and hardware but also quality and sturdy design of our phones. Fingerprint scanning has emerged as the most popular biometric technology to keep your data secure. The fast fingerprint scanner will be able to recognise your fingers and thumbs in a split second and also will act as a home button. The sleek Eluga Prim strikes a neat balance between the two.”
It is powered by a 1.25 GHz quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. The phone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with triple LED flash along with a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. There is a fingerprint sensor onboard, embedded into the Home button. Other connectivity options include Dual-SIM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. A 2500mAh battery backs the device.
