Panasonic India’s latest offering for Indian consumers, Panasonic Eluga Turbo, will retail on snapdeal for 10,999 INR. The company chooses to retail it via Flash sales model, and the pilot sales will be held on 27th Jan, 2016.
In last couple of weeks, the price band around Eluga Turbo has rapidly changed to a fierce battlefield where big-guns like Lenovo K4 Note, Le 1S, Honor 5X and Redmi Note 3 Shall compete for market share. It won’t be easy for Eluga Turbo to overshadow these offerings, particularly in online domain (Panasonic still has better consolidated offline distribution network).
Coming back to Eluga Turbo, Panasonic ensures that its glassy front and back body doesn’t lose its sheen easily by layering Gorilla Glass 3 on front and Ashai Dragontrail glass on the rear side. Also adding to the premium appeal is its 6.95 mm slim profile.
Talking of features and specifications, Eluga Turbo employs unspecified 1.5GHz octa-core chipset, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. You can add another 32Gigs of secondary MicroSD storage as well.
You can shoot 1080p videos from the 13MP rear camera and make use of the front 5MP snapper for selfies. Other notable features include 2350mAh Battery, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 4G LTE, dual SIM and GPS.
Announcing on the launch of the device, Mr. Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said, “India’s technology market in 2016 will be focusing on ‘Make in India’ and 4G enabled devices as an innovation-driven economy has led to the expansion of software and services.
