Panasonic has rolled out the Eluga l3 at a price of Rs 9290, the Android phone’s talking point being its 4G VoLTE support. At present, telecom companies in India offering 4G services, fall back on 3G or 2G waves to enable voice calls for customers. Voice over LTE changes the game by allowing for improved audio quality, faster connections, simplified networks and much more. Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel and Idea Cellular will be among the first carriers to deploy the technology in India on a commercial scale.
As for the new Panasonic Eluga l3, it doesn’t have its looks going for it. But it certainly is pegged at a reasonably rate for a 4G VoLTE smartphone. The device can hold two SIM cards inside; but it is capable of supporting only one VoLTE-compatible card at a time. It has made some other small improvements over its predecessor (Eluga l2) with its 5.5-inch HD screen, 2GB RAM and higher internal memory space of 16GB. Even its photography capabilities have been given a boost with its 13MP and 5MP camera combination.
Panasonic Eluga l3 specifications at a go:
– 5.5-inch 720 x 1280p IPS display
– FitHome UI based on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS
– 1.3GHz quad core processor
– 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, 32GB microSD card support

As mentioned above, the Panasonic Eluga l3 plays successor to the l2 which has a 5.5-inch qHD touchscreen, a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon chip, 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM and a 2MP/8MP camera setup. It carried a tag of Rs 9990 at release and delivers 4G connectivity as well as two SIM card slots.
