Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Panasonic P31 sports a 5-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, so it’s obvious that it’s not targeted at users who are looking for advanced features. The handset is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6582M processor clocked at 1.3GHz. It further comes with an 8MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support (up to 32GB), and a 2,000 mAh battery (there’s an Ultimate Saver feature that helps you save battery life). Connectivity-wise, the P31 offers HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The Panasonic P31 will be launched in India next week for about $196, coming in two color versions: white and “bluish black.” We don’t know if the new smartphone is going to be released anywhere else.
