Mid-range handsets have always enjoyed success in the emerging markets. While the hardware on offer isn't always amazing, but more affordable pricing than those of high-end handsets have been a great value for your pocket.
And the Panasonic P31, a forthcoming handset, doesn't completely sets the stage on fire, but its rumored pricing would definitely attract Indian users.
For a while, Panasonic has been teasing a brand new handset for Indian users via social networking sites. The company has also sent a teaser image of Panasonic P31 to media. The handset will formally launch in India by next month.
In the meantime, the alleged specifications of Panasonic P31 have been leaked all over the place. According to the report from AndroidOS, Panasonic's forthcoming P31 handset will be an affordable handset, with respect to its internal spec sheet.
Just a day back, the same blog site spotted the P31 promo video on YouTube, which allegedly revealed features and specifications of the said device. The phone is expected to pack a 5-inch FWVGA display having a resolution of 854x480pixels.
It will be powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, while other core features are yet to be cracked. On the camera front, the phone is expected to have an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a front facing shooter.
On the connectivity front, the P31 is said to support 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. It is widely assumed that the Panasonic P31 will also support dual-SIM support, an essential feature found in the low-end devices.
Additionally, the Panasonic P31 will come pre-loaded with slew of apps including the likes of Evernote, Sony, India Today and Hungama.
As of now, Panasonic hasn't revealed the price of P31; however, it is expected to be priced under Rs. 10,000. The exact release date, however, is yet to be confirmed.
