Panasonic India keeps expanding its presence in the offline smartphone market in India with the latest entry-level device called Panasonic P85 Nxt. The device has basic specs, big 4,000 mAh battery and a price tag of INR6,999 ($95).
The phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 210 chipset that has a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz. The screen is 5” with a standard HD resolution, and there is Gorilla Glass on top for protecting the LCD and the capacitive keys. The memory combo is 2/16 GB with a slot that can carry up to 128 GB.
There is one camera on the back and one on the front of the device; both coupled with an LED flash. The sensors are respectively 8 MP and 5 MP, with the main one having 5P lens and AF. Biometric security options include Face Unlock and a fingerprint sensor on the back.
The P85 Nxt is dual SIM and comes with the dated Android Nougat OS and the pre-installed app Arbo Hub that brings news updates, cab rides, games without the need to download them, and even horoscope if you are into this kind of stuff.
One neat feature about the new phone is that it supports reverse charging - simply plug another device into the Panasonic P85 Nxt and it will start filling its battery (given you have the proper cables, of course). The phone is offered in Blue, Gold, and Black and is already available at “all leading retail outlets.”

Earlier this year I got a Cubot X18 Plus for 900 NOK (~108USD) and it's got a FHD+ 5.99* screen, 4GB RAM, same 4000 mAh battery and loads more internal storage (64GB) and a MT6750T octa core. Yes, one cannot except flagship internals at a $100, ...
It's not about Panasonic. Show my post to your boss, so he can inform you that you should read it carefully, in particular the second paragraph, before replying.
