A new Panasonic Eluga Icon smartphone is out in India now, and is being highlighted by the fact that it sports a large 3500mAh battery pack that’s capable of offering 19 hours of talktime. Moreover, it has also been blessed by its maker with 4G LTE support which has become somewhat of a necessity for new handsets being launched in the country to possess.
The Panasonic Eluga Icon costs Rs 10999, and is available for purchase now exclusively through Amazon India in the form of gold and slate color options. Apart from admirable hardware, this device also boasts of some interesting software features.
Panasonic has blessed it with a ‘double tap to wake’ functionality as well as the ability to click seflies by just blinking an eye. Since it runs on a MediaTek processor, support for NFC-like HotKnot file transfers is present in the device as well.
The dual SIM Eluga Icon runs the Android 4.4 KitKat OS, and carries onboard a 5.5-inch 720p HD monitor. Its operations are run by a 1.5GHz octa core processor that’s granted assistance in this department by 2GB worth of RAM. A 13MP main camera can be found sitting on its rear surface, while an 8MP front snapper can also be spotted on it.
