With the launch of Xiaomi and Motorola's low-end smartphones in India, most of the competitor brands including the domestic ones are already threatened. Thus, there are several brands moving from mid-range smartphone manufacturing to low-end or affordable devices.
One of the smartphone makers who is trying its hands on the entry level KitKat smartphone is apparently Panasonic. The company's latest entry-level smartphone in the T series is evidently now available via online retailer Indiatimes Shopping. The Panasonic T9 comes in black and white colors and is priced at Rs. 3,750.
Panasonic T9: Key Specifications
The affordable Panasonic T9 sports a 3.5-inch (320 x 480 pixels) capacitive touch screen display. Powering the handset is a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor coupled with a pretty challenging 512MB RAM. The smartphone, however, runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) OS.
In the imaging section, you will get to use a 2MP rear camera with LED flash and a 0.3MP (VGA) front-facing snapper to take selfies.
The smartphone houses 4GB of internal memory, which is further expandable up to 32GB via micro SD card.
The Dual SIM (GSM + GSM) smartphone with Dual Standby support also has other connectivity options like 2G (EDGE), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth with A2DP.
Measuring 179 x 63.7 x 10.1mm, the new Panasonic T9 comes powered by a 1300 mAh battery.
Although, given a fact that it is being offered in a price so low, the device is pretty much going to sustain in the market. However, one of the things that Panasonic should have added to make it better is the 3G support, which is direly needed in this generation phones. Thus, if the smartphone falls in the market, it would surely be because of the lack of the 3G connectivity.
