Panasonic today unveiled a new smartphone for its Indian customers; Panasonic Eluga I7. The smartphone is priced at Rs. 6,499 and will be available exclusively on Flipkart starting from 24th April 2018.

The Panasonic Eluga I7 comes with a 5.45-inch Big View HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D curved glass on top. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a quad-core MTK6737H processor running at 1.3GHz.
