Panasonic Launches Eluga Tapp with Front Fingerprint Scanner


Expanding its mid-budget offering this festive season, Panasonic India Pvt. Ltd, has added another gadget to its secure smartphone range, the Eluga Tapp available at a best buy price of INR 8,990.

The Eluga Tapp comes with a front fingerprint scanner which allows you to unlock your phone quickly and securely, adding essential security to your data. This smartphone gives users the flexibility to view content comfortably in any work or leisure scenario, and particularly in the confined areas often encountered during commuting or business travel. The One touch security ensures that only you can access the data on your phone.

The phone comes with an add-on security feature ‘Android for Work’ that allows the user to segregate the business apps from personal apps and also protects user’s personal data. Android for Work features what’s known as a work profile on a device — a segregated, managed environment. To prevent data leakage, apps in the work profile can’t communicate with users’ personal apps, and corporate accounts.

The smartphone supports 4G VoLTE and features a stylish 5 inch full-HD (12.7 cm) IPS display and is powered by Quad-core processor clocked at 1.25GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM. On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0.There is 16GB of inbuilt storage and the handset supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 32GB).

Furthermore, the phone sports an 8 MP rear camera with auto focus for clear pictures and a 5MP front camera for selfie addicts. The phone weighs in at 138 gm and is quite light weight. The Eluga Tapp holds a powerful battery capacity of 2800mAh ensuring longer operation, where Lithium-Polymer gel based battery cells are safer, reliable & provide longer durability.

The smartphone will be available in Champagne Gold & Silver Grey. Also on offer with the smartphone is a protective screen guard. The Eluga Tapp provides a premium look complementing the brand Panasonic. The phone is loaded with state of the art connectivity features including GPS, Wi-Fi and Dual SIM (4G/3G+2G) maximizing your connectivity with the world.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said, “As we store more and more information on our phones and share it in ever more riskier ways, Fingerprint scanning has emerged as the most popular biometric technology. Much of the time, our personal information and details are protected by just the few hastily thought-out numbers in our passwords which we store in our phone. The new lightning fast front fingerprint sensor in Panasonic Eluga Tapp gives you a convenient way to unlock your device and secure your personal data. The scanner will be able to recognize your fingers and thumbs in a split second, topped with Android-for-work integration.”

He added, “Panasonic Eluga Tapp makes a mark in the affordable range for a diverse market like India. By introducing Panasonic Eluga Tapp we plan to make a presence in the tier II and tier III cities. This phone comes with top-end features but at an affordable price tag. The HD display, faster processing power and powerful battery empowers the consumer to perform all their task at ease and ensures longer operations. For Panasonic India, it is a step towards making the lives of the consumers easier and their data secure.”
