Panasonic India announced the Eluga X1 and Eluga X1 Pro, both are upper mid-range smartphones. The new phones comes with some decent specs, such as Helip P60 chipset, dual cameras, AI Face Unlock. The pro variant has more RAM and storage. Read on as you get to meet the Panasonic Eluga X1 and Eluga X1 Pro.
Panasonic Eluga X1 and Eluga X1 Pro Features
The Panasonic Eluga X1 and Eluga X1 Pro shares the same body as depicted in the image above. Just like I said earlier, the Panasonic Eluga X1 Pro came with a larger RAM and storage, which is 6GB and 128GB respectively. Both phone has an octa-core CPU running at 2GHz and a 6.19 inch screen with Full HD+ resolution and a notch on top. Both phones also has Gorilla Glass 3 protection both front and back, leaving the middle of the glass sandwich for the stainless steel frame.
The Panasonic Eluga X1 and the pro version have their rear camera placed at the upper left corner. The camera setup has a 16MP sensor and a 5MP secondary one with scene recognition and offers some background blur. The front-facing 16MP camera is tucked in the notch. At the back, you will also find a fingerprint sensor and an IR Face Unlock support that uses 236 recognition points in the dark.
The Panasonic Eluga X1 and Eluga X1 Pro, both came with Android Oreo out-of-the-box, and offers dual SIM support. The pro version came with 3000mAh battery with wireless charging support. The phone with a weight of 195 grams has a USB-C port but lacks a 3.5 mm audio jack. Panasonic salvages the situation with a dongle that arrives in the retail box.
