It’s not every day you get to see a good looking phone with solid specs and a price below $200. This is the case of the Panasonic Eluga Note, that debuted in India this week, with Android 6.0 Marshmallow in tow and 4G LTE.
It also has VoLTE support and it costs merely $197. The product has applied on top of Marshmallow a custom UI called FitHome, with thumb flick gestures used to quickly access apps from the homescreen. Panasonic Eluga Note also brings an infrared blaster, used to control TV sets, ACs, set top boxes and more. The smartphone packs a 5.5 inch Full HD IPS display and relies on an octa core MediaTek MT6753 CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz.
There’s also 3 GB of RAM in the mix, 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot too. At the back we find a 16 megapixel camera, with a very good F/1.9 aperture and a triple LED flash. The battery has a 3000 mAh capacity and there’s a 5 MP selfie camera upfront. Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and dual SIM slots are also here.
