Panasonic has just a new smartphone in India, the Eluga I5. The Panasonic Eluga I5 is a direct successor to the Eluga I4, and it follows the announcement of the Eluga A4 which had arrived to the country earlier this month. The Panasonic Eluga I5 is a budget smartphone, it's really affordable, and yet its specifications are not all that bad at all, having the phone's price point in mind. The Panasonic Eluga I5 is made out of metal, it sports a fingerprint scanner on its back, and all of its physical keys are located on the right. This phone comes with one camera on its back, and its speaker is placed on the back as well.
The Panasonic Eluga I5 does not exactly sport the thinnest bezels around, but you cannot really expect more at this price point. The Panasonic Eluga is quite compact, thanks to the size of its display, this phone sports a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display with a 2.5D curved glass on top of it, and the display is protected by the Asahi Dragon Trail Glass. The device is fueled by the MediaTek MT6737 64-bit quad-core SoC, while the Mali-T720 GPU is also included on this chipset. The phone packs in 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage, while a 2,500mAh non-removable battery is also included in this package. A 13-megapixel snapper is placed on the back of the Panasonic Eluga I5, and so is an LED flash. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on this smartphone, and the phone comes with a dual SIM setup (2x nano SIM) as well. You will find two SIM card slots on the inside, while you can use the second SIM card slot in order to expand the phone's internal storage via a microSD card.
