Panasonic is intensifying the budget smartphone war with its latest device in India. The smartphone, Panasonic P75, offers a marathon battery at a very affordable cost. It features a 5,000mAh battery, but weighs only 157 grams, making it extremely reliable for long usage with great ease. But one of the most attractive details regarding the smartphone would be its Rs. 5,990 price tag, which makes it a true low-cost smartphone competitor.

In India, the demand for affordable smartphones is on the rise. Companies like Lenovo, Xiaomi, Meizu, Coolpad and others have taken good advatange of the demand and they continue to launch new devices. Lenovo Vibe K5 was recently launched at Rs. 6,999, a price that was shared by the likes of Coolpad Note 3 Lite and Swipe Elite Plus smartphones. Panasonic P75 disrupts the already cheap smartphone segment.

In terms of specifications, Panasonic P75 features a 5-inch HD IPS display, an 8MP primary camera with LED flash and a 5MP front snapper. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6580 processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable storage. The handset's 5,000mAh battery is a non-removable one and the company claims it can deliver more than 10 hours of talk time.

"With the increased usage of smart phones nowadays, we offer our consumers a long lasting 5000mAH battery smart phone capable of turn-by-turn navigation as well, thereby assisting our consumers on the go," Pankaj Rana, business head of mobility division at Panasonic India, said in a statement, according to The Mobile Indian.

Panasonic P75 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and offers standard connectivity options, including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a microUSB 2.0 port. It also supports dual SIM, but there is no mention of 4G LTE band, which is pretty much a standard in every budget smartphone.

Panasonic will sell the P75 on both online and offline stores. The handset comes in champagne gold and sand black colours.
