Panasonic Eluga A2 is the latest offering from the Japanese Electronic in the Indian smartphone market. It has been priced at Rs. 9,490 and comes with a 4000mAh large battery. It is offered in Gold and Silver color options. This is Panasonic’s fourth smartphone after Eluga Arc, Eluga I3 and Eluga I2 which has been launched in last few months. Panasonic is eyeing budget smartphone segment in India as most Chinese smartphones don’t really exist in tier 3 onwards cities and towns.
The Panasonic Eluga A2 is powered by an unspecified 1GHz quad-core chipset along with 3GB of RAM. It sports a 5-inch display with a running resolution of 720x 1280 pixel. Panasonic Eluga A2 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop layered with company’s FitHome UI. It comes with 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera up front.
The dual SIM smartphone comes with 16GB of on-board storage which can be bumped up to 128GB via microSD card. In terms of connectivity options, it is packed with 4G LTE support, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS with A-GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and FM radio.
“With ELUGA A2, we aim to deliver maximum experience to our customers with a phone packed with features. Our new smartphone is a 4G VoLTE device with 3GB RAM and 4,000 mAh battery, thus, providing a better solution to consumers who want long operational hours on a 4G VoLTE,” Pankaj Rana, business head (mobility division), Panasonic India, said in a statement.
The Panasonic Eluga A2 is targeted towards budget phone users, and it was quite evident to us when we had our hands on experience with Eluga A2 at the launch event. The USP of this smartphone is its 4000mAh battery. Clearly, Panasonic is pitching this smartphone against the likes of Asus Zenfone Max, which recently received an incremental upgrade in specs.
The hardware isn’t exactly mouth watering and neither is the software. The Eluga A2 takes the middle-road and you will be buying this for its capacious battery (or perhaps for the familiar brand tag).
