Panasonic is one of the world's largest TV manufacturers. The company also makes other gadgets, including smartphones, though no one would blame you if you haven't heard of any of its handsets. I mean, how many people ran out to buy this cordless phone? And who had the money to spend on a LUMIX CM1?

But Panasonic has produced and sold a few low-end smartphones priced below 5,000 rupees in India. Now it is launching a device costing 10,999 called the Eluga Icon, the latest entry in a line of handsets that began in 2012.


This phone slides in among other midrange handsets, like the Android One-powered Laval Pixel V1. It offers a 5.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1280 x 720. There's 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot. The sizable 13MP rear camera and beefy 3500mAh battery are decent perks to find on a budget device, though the inclusion of Android 4.4, in this day and age, is far less enticing.

The Eluga Icon will be exclusively available from Amazon India, which intends to start selling the phone on August 13th.
