Panasonic has launched a new phablet in India called the Eluga Note earlier today at a press event in New Delhi. The new Eluga Note is a dual-SIM smartphone and is 4G LTE compatible with support for VoLTE . Available in a single Champagne Gold colour option, the Panasonic Eluga Note has been priced at Rs 13,290.

As for other features, the Eluga Note comes equipped with a 5.5-inch Full HD LTPS display. Powering the handset is an octa-core MediaTek chipset with all eight cores clocked at 1.3GHz. Packing 3GB of RAM, the Eluga Note offers 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for further memory expansion.

The Eluga Note boots Panasonic’s FitHome UI atop an Android 6.0 Marshmallow core. The 4G LTE connectivity also brings in support for 4G VoLTE but we are not sure whether it will be available from day one. At the rear is a 16-megapixel camera with f/1.9 aperture,  6P lens and triple LED flash. At the front is a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, IR Blaster, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and HD Voice over 3G. To power the Eluga Note, Panasonic has added a 3,000mAh battery devoid of any fast charging capability.

Joining the crowded and competitive sub-Rs 15,000 segment, Panasonic’s Eluga Note will compete with the likes of the Moto G4 Plus, Lenovo Z1, LeEco Le 2, YU Yunicorn, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, and a bunch of other phones.
