Panasonic has launched another budget smartphone in India priced at Rs. 6499. The key highlight of the smartphone is its affordable price and large 4000 mAH battery capacity.
The smartphone has gone on sale recently, available at Flipkart for Rs 6499. It is available in only one colour – gold and white.
The Panasonic P85 also comes with 4G VOLTE support to work seamlessly with the Reliance JIO and other telecom operators. The smartphone comes with a basic, neat poly-plastic design with a white front panel and a golden rear cover.
The Dual Sim smartphone has got a hybrid sim tray to house the second sim or micro-sd card. There is 5-inch IPS LCD Display which comes with HD resolution (1280*720) pixels and 283 Ppi. The smartphone has no 2.5D curved glass or any protective glass from Corning.
The Panasonic P85 is powered by Mediatek 6735 Quad Core Processor clocked at 1.0 GHz. There is 2 GB of Ram, and the device runs on the Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS. It is not the latest OS from Google, and there are some budget phones which are recently launched in India running Android Nougat.
The P85 comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash and modes like HDR, Face Beauty, Panorama, gestures. There is also a basic 2 Megapixel front facing camera for video calls.
The smartphone has 9.2 mm thickness which is passable considering the large battery size of 4000 mAH and a smaller screen.

The device competes with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 4, Nubia N2 Lite and Xolo ERA X2. Panasonic has previously launched the P55 Max.
