Smartphones with thick bezels are slowly becoming a thing of the past as brand new device from the like of Xiaomi, Oppo and even Apple slowly hit the market. Panasonic is now the next OEM to jump on this trend with the Panasonic Eluga C, a phone that’s bezeless on three of its sides.
The phone has a 5.5” screen with a screen to body ratio of 84.6%. The resolution isn’t great – 720p – but the brightness is pretty good – 450 nits. Below the screen is a fingerprint reader (0.3s unlock time) and an 8MP selfie camera.
The MediaTek MT6750T chipset runs the show of this mid-range affair, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage backing it up. Expandable memory is also an option, which is fantastic to see. Around the back there’s a dual 13MP + 5MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture.
The design of the device isn’t particularly unique, though it’s quite a decent looking one. The rear looks quite a bit like the Mi Mix, and it covers the device’s modest 3000mAh battery. Overall. this is a clearly mid-range attempt at a bezeless device, and we’re curious to see how it turns out for Panasonic.
