Panasonic P9

Panasonic has more budget smartphones in its inventory than any other category of smartphones, and that inventory has gotten bigger with the Panasonic P9 which was launched in the Panasonic P series some days ago in India.

Panasonic P9 Specifications, Review and Highlights

Design & Display

The Panasonic P9 (thankfully) has a metal body design, unlike many budget smartphones that are covered with plastic, driving home the budget tag on them.

It has a 5-inch FWVGA (854 * 480) display that is protected with Asahi Dragon Trail Glass. The smartphone weighs 144g and is 8.6mm thick.

Storage & Processor

The P9 comes with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB using an external microSD card.

It is powered by a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek MT6737M processor with a max speed of 1.1GHz, while its graphics processes are carried out by a Mali T720 GPU.

Camera

The smartphone sports an 8MP camera with a f/2.0 aperture and LED flash at the rear to handle main photography, and a 5MP camera is present at the front for taking selfies.

Battery & Connectivity

The Panasonic P9 packs a 2210mAh battery and comes with dual SIM slots which support 4G VoLTE. It is compatible with FM Radio and offers the regular connectivity options like Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.
