Japan’s Panasonic announced Eluga I3 Mega, a mid-range smartphone that comes with a bigger battery, updated OS and more memory compared to its predecessor the Eluga I3, that was launched in April last year.

The new Eluga comes with quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz and 3 GB RAM. The internal storage is 16 GB with an option of expanding it up to 128 GB through a microSD slot. The device has a 5.5” display of HD resolution and 2.5D curved screen, and it runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0. The Eluga I3 Mega also has Android-For-Work security for better data protection.

The phone has a 13 MP camera ata the back, while at the front we find a 5 MP sensor. The battery is non-removable and has 4000 mAh capacity, which is way bigger that the 2700 mAh battery in the Eluga I3.

The phone comes in either Champagne Gold or Silver and costs INR11,490 or about $177.
