Panasonic launches Eluga A4 with 5000 mAh battery and Android 7 - Will it be the next Redmi Note 4?

Xiaomi has ruled over India for a long period, all thanks to its budget-oriented smartphones that pack tons of feature. Under a decent price category, Redmi Note 4, one of the flagship devices launched by Xiaomi has looted the hearts of many Indian fans and have swapped their not so smart devices. Will there be any smartphone that will turn the tables against Xiaomi? Maybe yes, and here we will discuss some of its unique features.

Panasonic, a well-known Japanese Electronics manufacturer company, has been long trying to capture Indian smartphone market by their budget oriented Eluga series. Recently the tech giant has launched a smartphone named Eluga A4 and the tech enthusiasts believe that now is the time when Panasonic has offered something which will work on its way to success.

Powered by a 5000 mAh battery, Panasonic Eluga A4 is a stunning mobile phone which also comes with an AI virtual assistant named Arbo. The phone has some unique features like fingerprint gestures and the spilt-screen feature that allows working on two different applications at the same time. Costing only Rs 12,490, the following are what the smartphone has to offer -

The device has a rectangular design and is in a metallic case. Its dimensions are 149.5 x 74 x 8.95 mm with a screen size of 5.2 inches. Featuring 2.5 D IPS curved screen, the smartphone offers a 1280 x 720 HD resolution which promises to provide a stunning viewing experience. It is available in Marine Blue, Champagne Gold and Mocha Gold color variants which are displayed in the following image.


Processor is the area where the smartphone lacks a bit compared to the likes of Xiaomi. It has a MediaTek Quad Core 6737 processor that clocks at 1.25 GHz speed with max up to 1.5 GHz. Compared to Snapdragon 430 processors, that features on most of the Xiaomi devices, the MediaTex 6737 falls far short on both specifications as well as performance. The Snapdragon 430 is an octa-core 1.4 GHz power efficient processor that even has a powerful Adreno GPU. Its power efficient technology is the key to the long battery life of Xiaomi devices. Though Mediatek is not as efficient as Snapdragon, maybe that’s the reason why Eluga is provided with a 5000 mAh battery to manage that trade-off. Apart from this, the processor of Eluga A4 is backed by a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM which is further expandable up to 128 GB via microSD.

Camera features, however, are pretty decent unlike its processor as it has 13 MP auto-focus rear camera with 5 MP front shooter selfie camera. The phone has finger gesture feature that allows capturing quick selfies and images using the soft touch vibration technology.

Connectivity options include but are not limited to 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB tethering, etc. The phone has dual hybrid nano SIM slots and features OTG and 3.5 mm audio jack compatibility. The only downside its is USB 2.0 which could be to USB 3.0 as its pretty outdated.

Nevertheless, the smartphone has well-packed sensors under the hood. Some of them being - Ambient light sensor, Proximity, Fingerprint sensor and Accelerometer. Overall, it seems that Panasonic has made a powerful smartphone with decent specs at a mid-range price.

Hence, at Rs 12,490, a 5000 mAh battery with quick charging support, 13 MP autofocus camera, and a decent display is what the smartphone has mainly to offer. Do you think it has enough to uproot Xiaomi and replace it to become the next Note 4? Share your views in the comments below.
