Panasonic on Wednesday widened its smartphone portfolio in India with the launch of the Eluga I9. The new smartphone with a price tag of Rs. 7,499 will be exclusively available in the country via Flipkart starting Friday, December 15. It sits against popular budget offerings, including the Xiaomi Redmi 5A and Nokia 2.

The dual-SIM Panasonic Eluga I9 runs Android 7.0 Nougat with the company’s own customisations atop, including the Arbo virtual assistant. It features a 5-inch IPS display with an HD (720×1280 pixels) resolution. Under the hood, the smartphone has a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 SoC coupled with 3GB of RAM. There is 32GB onboard storage that can be expanded via microSD (up to 128GB).

Panasonic has provided a 13-megapixel camera sensor on the back of the Eluga I9, paired with an LED flash module. A 5-megapixel camera sensor is available on the front with a diffused, selfie flash. Also, there are preloaded modes such as a watermark, panorama, burst mode, and a list of filters. The smartphone has 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, and Micro-USB on the connectivity front. It has a fingerprint sensor and comes with OTG support. Besides, the handset packs a 2500mAh battery that is claimed to deliver up to eight hours of video playback on a single charge and comes in Space Grey, Champagne Gold, and Blue colour options.

“The new generation smartphone Eluga I9 fits perfectly into the users hands and gives a good grip. It is a blend of great style, powerful performance, and quality entertainment experience,” said Pankaj Rana, business head – mobility division, Panasonic India, in a press statement.

Last month, Panasonic launched the Eluga C as its affordable bezel-less display-sporting smartphone in Taiwan. That handset included a dual camera setup and was debuted in the Taiwanese market with a price tag of TWD 6,000 (approximately Rs. 12,900).
