The Panasonic T44 and T30 have been launched in India, with the brand hoping to attract buyers from Tier-II and Tier-III cities. The former can be snapped up at Rs 4290, while the latter has been slapped with a Rs 3290 price tag.
Both the Panasonic T44 and T30 are being sold bundled with a protective screen guard worth Rs 299. The former is set apart from its competitors in the entry-level marketplace by virtue of running Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the gate.
Most affordable handsets opt for Lollipop and never get updated nowadays. It’s possible the Panasonic phone may appeal to people who want to enjoy the benefits of Google’s latest OS without having to venture outside the affordable market segment.
As for its specs, the T44 sports a 4-inch WVGA screen and gets its juice from a 2400mAh battery. Photography hounds can shoot videos and photos through its 5MP rear camera equipped with LED flash. There’s also a 2MP front-facing snapper for selfies and video calls.
In terms of memory, Panasonic has stuffed it with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal space. Users who run out of space quickly can add up to 32GB of additional memory via a microSD card slot. The dual-SIM handset gets things done with the help of a 1.3GHz processor of unknown origin.
As for the Panasonic T30, the handset is very similar to the T44 in terms of features. However, there are a few notable differences between the two such as the former’s Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, and 1400mAh battery.
