The last smartphone to launch in the P series was the Panasonic P77 in September, priced at Rs. 6,990.

As for the optics, the Panasonic P71 sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash and a 2-megapixel front camera for selfies and video chats. The smartphone packs a 2000mAh battery that supports optimised power management software that ensures the best possible use of the battery to keep the lights on a little bit longer.
