Panasonic has launched a pair of new phones – the Panasonic Eluga A3 and A3 Pro. This adds two new phones to the Japanese manufacturer’s A-series lineup. Both of these phones feature the new Arbo Virtual Assistant as well.
Both the smartphones feature a 5.2-inch HD screen with Asahi Dragon Trail Glass protection. The A3 runs on a 1.25 GHz Quad-core MediaTek 6737 SoC with 3GB of RAM and 16GB storage. The A3 Pro, on the other hand, runs on a 1.3 GHz Quad-core 6753 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. There is a single 13MP rear camera with PDFA & flash and on the front is an 8MP sensor for selfies.
At the launch event, Pankaj Rana, the business head of mobility division of Panasonic India commented “Further to the positive response of Eluga Ray series, we are happy to introduce two more powerful smartphones in the Eluga portfolio – Eluga A3 and A3 Pro. With the new improved features and enhanced quality, the user will be able to do so much more. The Smartphones come in 3 stunning colors – Mocha Gold, Gold and Grey which define and complement consumer’s style quotient. Also, our AI Assistant – Arbo will track and understand all your activities and help you make a schedule so that you don’t miss out on anything from your daily routine.”
Software wise the phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Keeping the lights on is a huge 4000mAh battery. Pair that with a low-resolution screen, it will be enough for even the heavier users.
We believe our in-house developed artificial intelligence (AI)-based virtual assistant Arbo will be a differentiator
