Panasonic Love T10, with a 3.5-inch display and 3G, will be available to consumers in India from the last week of July, 2015 in White & Black colors.
More phones in the Love series may be launched in the future.
The device is targeted at the youth who are looking at upgrading their 3G smartphones, especially in small towns and upcoming urban markets.
“With a growing number of users accessing internet on their smartphones today, the newly introduced device serves as a perfect smartphone to suit their needs and requirements,” Panasonic said.
“The Panasonic LOVE T10 is the first offering of the LOVE series of smartphones dedicated to the youth segment with complete connectivity suite covering Dual SIM 3G HSPA, Bluetooth 4.0 A2DP, Wi-Fi Hotspot at an attractive price,” the Japanese firm said.
It did not specify the RAM, but we expect it to be 512 MB. Any less, and the phone would be difficult to use.
The device is powered by 1GHz Dual Core processor and runs on Android™ 4.4.2(Kitkat) with 4GB internal memory support. The smart gadget sports 2MP camera & houses a battery capacity of 1400mAh. LOVE T10 supports 21 Indian regional languages for the diverse Indian consumers; the supported languages are Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Oriya, Bengali, Assamese, Marathi, Nepali, Bodo, Dogri, Konkani, Urdu, Maithili, Manipuri, Sanskrit, Sindhi & Santali.
Sharing his thoughts, Mr. Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said, “Smartphones today have overtaken personal computers and tablets to become the ultimate gateway for those who want to connect to the internet on-the-go. Due to a surge in mobile internet users outpacing the growth in the Indian market, we have an introduced this device which not only meets the affordability aspect but also supports vernacular languages for our consumers. Catering to the needs of masses as well as the classes, the LOVE T10 is a perfect device that offers a blend of technology and design making it a smart utility product.”
Intex and to some extent, brands like Karbonn and Micromax are the biggest players in the entry-level 3G market in India.
Panasonic’s launch of the Love T10 will make it a key player in this space as well.
