Panasonic Relaunches in Nepal with Five New Budget Smartphones

Panasonic may not be a brand that comes to mind when people think about smartphones. It has been mostly absent in the Nepalese market and doesn’t have much of a presence in the International stage too. But it wants to change its status in Nepal by launching 5 new phones aimed at the budget market with a new official distributor, Global Biz Pvt. Ltd.

Though this is the most lucrative price segment in Nepal for manufacturers, the competition in the budget market is fierce. We’ll have to see how Panasonic Nepal fares with its competitors like Xiaomi, Colors, and others.

Panasonic P91

The Panasonic P91 is the cheapest offering from Panasonic among its new smartphones. It is powered by a 1.1 GHz quad-core Media Tek Processor inside and runs Android Nougat 7.0. Performance-wise you’ll get what you pay for. Its one GB of RAM is barely enough to complete basic tasks like calling and texting. As for the storage, Panasonic P91 comes with 16 GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 128GB using Micro-SD card.

In the camera department, it boasts an 8 MP sensor on the back equipped with a LED flash. On the front, a 5 MP camera adores the forehead of the phone. The screen has an HD resolution which is very welcomed at this price and all of this is powered by a 2500mAh battery.

It has an 8 MP primary camera and a 5 MP selfie camera which look similar in paper to the Panasonic P91. The OS is still Android 7.0 Nougat. So, what’s extra you say? Well, this phone has a fingerprint sensor just below the primary camera and a flash for the front camera. You can assign finger-print to unlock for individual apps too. But the battery capacity has decreased to 2200mAh which seems odd as more component and a faster processor has been added to the phone.

But you have to say goodbye to the front flash and the fingerprint sensor, What?, that you get in its cheaper sibling Panasonic P100. We don’t understand the exclusion, neither the trend of decreasing battery with the increasing price — Panasonic P99 has a 2000mAh battery.

The other internals is similar to the P100 though. You get 5″ IPS HD screen, a 1.25GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, Android 7.0 same old 8 MP camera on the back and 5 MP camera on the front. The internal storage is 16 GB which is expandable up to 128 GB using Micro-SD card.

The primary camera also gets a bump up to a 13 MP sensor from 8 MP. And finally, the trend of decreasing battery with increasing price breaks as the Eluga I9 includes 2500mAh battery which, though larger than some of other Panasonic phone, is still smaller than the ones included in the phones from Xiaomi and Huawei. But you can console yourself with the fact that fingerprint scanner is included in this phone.
