Panasonic has launched two new smartphones in India in their Eluga series – X1 and X1 Pro. These phones come with an IR Face Unlock which is being branded by AI Sense and the phones themselves are made up of metal with a 2.5D glass on the display. Both the Eluga X1 and X1 Pro come with a 6.18-inch full HD+ display which is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
In the imaging side, the phones have a dual camera setup with 16 MP + 5 MP configuration which supports portrait photos and more. The front has a 16 MP sensor with a Bokeh mode and this also supports Face Emoji and AI supported Beauty Mode.
The phones run on Android 8.1 Oreo and come with a USB Type-C port which will be used for charging, data syncing and audio. You do get a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio adapter inside the retail box. Coming to the AI Sense feature, this is a proprietary IR based face unlock that works even in dark environments.
The main difference between the Panasonic Eluga X1 and X1 Pro is the fact that the Eluga X1 comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage while the X1 Pro comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage and also wireless charging. Everything else remains the same in both of these phones.
