The technology giant, Panasonic, rolled out its Eluga U smartphone in India, tagged at a price of Rs. 18,990, this week. This series of smartphones was first brought to the market in the year 2012, after which it soon got discontinued. With availability beginning from August 2014 in India, the smartphone sports an Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box with a layer of Panasonic Play Life UI, and dual-SIM with a Micro SIM support and is sought after to stand against the likes of Xiaomi Mi 3 and the Micromax Canvas Knight.
This flagship features a 5-inch IPS OGS display with 1280×720 pixel resolution, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and a trailing 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM which could make Eluga U struggle to catch the attention of a market saturated with options. Weighing 141 grams, the phone boasts its unibody design and will be available in black and white color variants.

In terms of storage it features an inbuilt 16GB which is expandable up to 32GB. Other features include a Kwik Lock double tap on the home screen to lock the phone, Fit Home UI for single hand operation, Pop I player, Music cafe and Gesture play. The smartphone launched with the idea of “Elegance for the new generation!” has specifications ranging from a 2500mAh battery; to connectivity options like 3G, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS/ A-GPS. While the battery backup may sound great, it seems to be grossly overpriced for the not so high end features seem to be as back dated as at least 2 years ago.
