Highlights

    • New 16GB storage variant of Panasonic P77 launched
    • The device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop software
    • The phone is priced at Rs 5,299 in the Indian market

Panasonic on Tuesday launched an upgraded variant of its last year’s Panasonic P77 in India. The only difference is more internal storage while rest of the specifications remain unchanged. When the Panasonic P77 was announced last year in September, it offered 8GB of internal storage. The new model, however, offers 16GB of internal storage. Specifications on paper aren’t much to be excited about the latest Panasonic P77, which despite being on par with most of the entry-level handsets available out there, brings nothing “new” to the table. In fact, the device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out-of-the-box in 2017, which is ridiculously astonishing.
