The phone features a 13.9cm (5.5”) IPS HD display and is powered by a Quad Core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. There’s an 8MP auto-focus camera capable of Full HD capture and a 2MP front-facing camera . The device features a tile patterned back cover and with a thickness of just 7.9mm, the phone looks stylish as well.

The Panasonic P55 packs in ‘Tap Play’ feature which allows the phone to recognize touch while in sleep mode so that users can double tap to wake-up the phablet instead of reaching for the power button every time. There’s also ‘Gesture Play’, a gesture-based feature to launch apps directly from home screen and ‘Pop-i Player’ which lets you multi-task while playing videos.

“With technology constantly changing it allows our brand to push boundaries and create new and exciting products that are customized according to the needs and requirements of the Indian market. With continuous innovation as our baseline strategy, the new P55 gives our consumers the ability to operate their smartphone seamlessly while meeting the easily accessibility aspect.”

– Manish Sharma, Managing Director, Panasonic India

The Panasonic P55 will be available in India from the first week of November at a price of ₹10,290. It’s available in black and pearl white colours, and the box includes a flip cover and screen guard.
