Panasonic is continuing to strengthen its smartphone lineup with yet another launch. The latest device is called the P55 and is in the ever growing phablet category. Nobody could have envisaged that Phablets would become such a key category for all the major smartphone players but given the preference of Indian to own a device that can double as a tablet and a phone, you can see why the category has really taken off.
Launching the P55, Mr. Manish Sharma, Managing Director, Panasonic India said:
With technology constantly changing it allows our brand to push boundaries and create new and exciting products that are customized according to the needs and requirements of the Indian market. With continuous innovation as our baseline strategy, the new P55 gives our consumers the ability to operate their smartphone seamlessly while meeting the easily accessibility aspect.
The P55 is a midrange affordable phablet from Panasonic and will be available for Rs 10,290 in the first week of November. With a thickness of just 7.9 mm and an elegant and interesting tile patterned back cover, the P55 promises to be quite a looker. The device has a 5.5 inch IPS HD display which is powered by a Quadcore 1.2 GHz chipset at the heart of it. You have 1 GB of RAM but a very disappointing 4 GB of ROM, though you do have expansion via Micro SD slot in the device for the multimedia enthusiasts.
The front facing camera is 2 MP while you have an 8 MP rear camera on the device. The battery is 2500 mAh and the device supports dual active SIM slots. The device also has Light Sensor, Proximity sensor & Accelerometer among the sensors and your usual array of connectivities like Bluetooth, WiFi etc. You also have FM radio in there. The phone will be available in both black as well as white variants.
