Panasonic Eluga A comes to India for Rs 9490, sports a 5-inch screen and quad core CPU

The Panasonic Eluga A Android smartphone which has been launched in India for a price of Rs 9490, comes with a 5-inch touchscreen and quad core Snapdragon processor to boot. This puts it in direct competition with the Asus ZenFone 5 that has been enjoying quite a run on Flipkart since it was released last month.

The introduction of Panasonic Eluga A handset comes just days after its beefier cousin called the Panasonic Eluga U was rolled out in the country. Comparatively, the Eluga A grabs slightly less impressive specs. Its 5-inch IPS display offers visuals in an FWGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels.

The Eluga A dual SIM smartphone runs the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS, quite plainly ignoring the trend among manufacturers to present buyers with the latest version of Google’s mobile OS. The Panasonic Eluga A is powered by a quad core Snapdragon 200 processor which is assisted by 1GB worth of RAM and an Adreno GPU.

Powering the handset from within is a 2000mAh battery which keeps it working between charges. The Eluga A features an 8MP camera on its rear surface, whereas a 1.3MP snapper sits on its front above the screen. Its 4GB of onboard storage is complemented by a microSD card slot for memory expansion.
