Panasonic has made an addition to its Eluga series, and it isn’t a successor to the current devices, but a mini version of a smartphone that is already in the market. The Panasonic Eluga S is what gets launched, and the price for that is Rs. 8990. The focus is not just on the size though, as the company still keeps the good 5-megapixel front facing camera for selfies.
The Eluga S Mini comes with a 4.7-inch HD IPS display, and the design is identical to the other Panasonic devices, with a frost-effect given on the back that is arc-shaped. Internally, the smartphone comes with a 1.4GHz octa-core processor (True Octa-core), and there is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM, along with a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion by 32GB. Not sure how well the multitasking will be supported on 1GB RAM, when quite a lot of competitors have better powered devices with 2GB RAM in the same price.
There is a 8-megapixel camera on the back, with LED flash and a 1080p video recording at 30 fps, while the selfie shooter on the front is a 5-megapixel one with Blink Play feature in the camera, that starts a countdown of three seconds when a group of faces is identified and someone prompts the capture with a blink of the eyes.
This is a Dual SIM smartphone with regional language support for 21 languages. The battery packed into the phone, has a capacity of 1980 mAh. While the Eluga S Mini from Panasonic goes on sale this week, there are two color options to be available – Frost White & Shadow Grey.
