The launch of the Panasonic T50 also marks the debut of the brand’s Sail UI. The platform is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop and is similar to other forked versions of the OS put out by manufacturers.

Panasonic says its Sail UI integration even extends to the smartphone’s camera module. The setup consists of a 5MP main snapper with LED flash and a 2MP one for selfies and video calls. Users can take advantage of specialized options like Child Mode, Pose Mode and Watermark, in addition to free themes and special effects.
