Panasonic has been slowly and steadily coming up with latest phones in the Indian market. Some might say their progress is slow, approach different compared to the online leaders. But the company is doing what it does best. Bringing out affordable devices at attractive prices in the offline market while also keeping itself competitive by releasing products in the online space.
The highlight of the latest products that Panasonic has launched i.e. the Eluga Ray X and Eluga Ray Max is an A.I powered assistant named Arbo. Panasonic asserts that Arbo is a self learning assistant which analyses and understands user behaviour in order to find patterns about the device.
The Panasonic Eluga Ray X and Eluga Ray Max were launched in India in March, they are available online on Flipkart. The Eluga Ray X retails for a price of INR 8,999 and the 32 gb version of Eluga Ray Max retails for INR 11,499, 64 GB one is available for INR 12,499 .
Both of these come pre-installed with the Arbo assistant and in case the unit you buy doesn’t have it the situation would soon be fixed via an ota update.
