Panasonic India targets tier-II and tier-III cities with the launch of Eluga Tapp – an affordable 4G VoLTE smartphone with a fingerprint sensor. The handset will be available in Champagne Gold & Silver Gray color options for 8,990 INR.
The Panasonic Eluga Tapp includes a compact 5-inch display with 720p HD resolution and is powered by an unspecified quad-core CPU clocked at 1.25GHz. The smartphone offers 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. Panasonic has also added a dedicated MicroSD card slot, which means you will be able to add up to 32GB of secondary storage without compromising on dual SIM card privilege.
The Panasonic Eluga Tapp further includes an 8MP rear and 5MP front camera. It’s running Android Marshmallow out of the box, integrated with ‘Android for Work’ that lets you manage a separate and secure work profile. Apps under work profile can communicate with personal apps as well. Talking of security, the handset also includes a fingerprint sensor integrated with the home button for secure unlocking.
Other hardware features include Bluetooth™ 4.0, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, Global Positioning System (A-GPS), FM with RDS, and a 2800mAh battery.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said, “As we store more and more information on our phones and share it in ever more riskier ways, Fingerprint scanning has emerged as the most popular biometric technology. Much of the time, our personal information and details are protected by just the few hastily thought-out numbers in our passwords which we store in our phone. The new lightning fast front fingerprint sensor in Panasonic Eluga Tapp gives you a convenient way to unlock your device and secure your personal data. The scanner will be able to recognize your fingers and thumbs in a split second, topped with Android-for-work integration.”
