The release of the Panasonic Eluga S in India has made it clear that the recently observed trend of manufacturers coming up with selfie phones is in full swing now. Although the official price of this handset happens to be Rs 11190, it is being sold by Snapdeal at just Rs 10990.

What places the Panasonic Eluga S in the selfie phone territory is the fact that it plays home to a 5MP front-facing camera. In contrast, its rear surface kicks in an 8MP unit which is given company by an LED flash. The manufacturer has infused this device with a Blink Play feature which lets you click pictures by just blinking at the front camera.
