Panasonic today launched two new smartphones in their flagship lineup. The Eluga X1 and X1 Pro come with a glass back design and a host of AI features. Along with this, there is an IR based Face Unlock and wireless charging which is a first in this price bracket.

Panasonic Eluga X1 and X1 Pro feature a 6.18-inch full-HD+ (1080×2246 pixels) display with notch and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Both the modes come with the proprietary function called ‘AI Sense’ that is said to unlock the smartphone using their face in less than half a second even in low-light conditions. This is being achieved using an IR emitter and IR camera.
