Commenting on the launch, Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said:
“As we store more and more information on our phones and share it in ever more riskier ways, Fingerprint scanning has emerged as the most popular biometric technology. Much of the time, our personal information and details are protected by just the few hastily thought-out numbers in our passwords which we store in our phone. The new lightning fast front fingerprint sensor in Panasonic Eluga Tapp gives you a convenient way to unlock your device and secure your personal data. The scanner will be able to recognize your fingers and thumbs in a split second, topped with Android-for-work integration.”
“Panasonic Eluga Tapp makes a mark in the affordable range for a diverse market like India. By introducing Panasonic Eluga Tapp we plan to make a presence in the tier II and tier III cities. This phone comes with top-end features but at an affordable price tag.
