With Android One now official, things are really heating up in the Indian market and Panasonic is trying hard to woo customer with its latest T40 handset. The device is priced at Rs 5990 and it carries specs akin to what you’d find on the Google-backed handsets.
And while Android One device come sans any customizations and proprietary software, Panasonic has thrown in some of its exclusive features as an incentive. The phone runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the Gesture Play+ tool which allows users to launch any application directly from the locks screen with simply swipes.
Then there’s the Pop-i player which can be re-sized and moved around the screen, and Music Cafe. As you’d expect at this price, the phone is an entry-level one and it has a display spanning 4 inches wide with WVGA resolution. We wouldn’t expect much in internal hardware either as there’s 1GB of RAM and a 1.3GHz quad core processor at work.
For storage, 8GB of internal memory is pretty decent and there’s also a 32GB compatible microSD card slot. Panasonic has thrown in dual cameras, a front snapper (probably VGA) and a 5MP shooter on the rear with LED flash. Appearance-wise, the T40 looks quite attractive and comes in shades of white, black and red.
