Panasonic has launched the Eluga Note at an event in Delhi today. The Eluga Note is priced at Rs 13,290 and it does come with decent specifications. The Panasonic Eluga Note features a 5.5-inch FHD display and is powered by an octa-core processor MediaTek 6753 clocked at 1.3GHz and paired with 3GB of RAM. The smartphone weighs in at 142 gms and is pretty chunky at 8.1mm thickness.On the storage front, the Eluga Note offers 32GB of Internal memory and a microSD card slot that can further accommodate up to 32GB. The camera unit shapes up in the form of a 16-Megapixel primary sensor with triple LED flash, 6P Lens, and a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor. The Eluga Note runs on FiT Home UI based on the Android Marshmallow and the device comes backed with a battery pack of 3,000mAh alongside MediaTek PumpXpress fast charging. The Eluga Note also comes fitted with an IR sensor that will allow the users to control TV, AC and DVD players.
Panasonic has partnered with Google for corporate sales and will accordingly offer Android for work. The connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE connectivity, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 and also VoLTE. The Panasonic Eluga Note will be offered in Champagne Gold colour and the company stresses on the offline retail channels rather than the online ones. At Rs 13,290 the Panasonic Eluga stares at the possibility of losing out to its competitors like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Moto G4 Plus and also Lenovo K5 Note. Also the fact that Eluga misses out on features like Fingerprint sensor might be a deal breaker for some.
