Panasonic has launched a new smartphone called as Eluga I2 Activ in the Indian market. The smartphone is launched in two variants with 1 GB Ram and 2 GB Ram.
The Panasonic Eluga I2 Activ with 1 GB Ram is priced at 7199 while the Eluga I2 Activ with 2 GB Ram is priced at Rs. 7,990. There are rarely any phones above 7k price which comes with 1 GB Ram which clearly shows a lack of market understanding by Panasonic product pricing team in India.
Though the new Panasonic Eluga I2 Activ looks good and comes with a metallic frame design. The smartphone will be available in 3 colour options – Gold, Rose Gold and Grey.
The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek 6737 Quad Core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz and comes with Mali 720 MP1 GPU. MediaTek 6737 is also not one of the fast processors in this budget.
The Panasonic Eluga I2 Activ comes with a 5.0 Inch IPS HD Display with 1280*720 pixels resolution. The mobile comes with an 8 Mega pixel rear camera and there is also a 5 Megapixel front facing selfie camera.
The Panasonic mobile runs on the Android Nougat 7.0 update along with their own custom UI.
The Panasonic Eluga I2 Activ comes with 16 GB of internal storage which can be further expanded to 128 GB using the micro-sd card slot. The smartphone comes with Dual Sim Support and also has latest connectivity options like 4G LTE as well as VOLTE.
The Panasonic Eluga I2 Activ is thin measuring 7.9 mm and also is quite light weight – just 133 grams. But the sleekness comes at the cost of smaller battery capacity, the Panasonic Eluga I2 Activ comes with just 2200 mAH capacity battery.
The smartphone also misses on Fingerprint scanner which is an essential feature these days. The Panasonic Eluga I2 Activ looks a bit pricey compared to the more affordable specs rich smartphones from rivals.
