After creating its space in the entry-level and mid-price segment, Panasonic is geared up to launch two Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled premium smartphones in the Indian market on October 4.

The flagship devices will hit the shelves next month as the festive season inches closer, industry sources told IANS on Monday.


The devices sporting stainless steel body will have features like wireless charging and other top-of-the-line specifications.

The Japanese technology company’s foray into the mid-price and premium segment comes on the heels of strengthening its distribution network that takes care of 80 per cent of its smartphone business in India.

In a recent interview with IANS, Pankaj Rana, Business Head, Mobility Division, Panasonic India, had aspired to to be in the top 10 brands in India.

“Distribution is our core strength and currently 80 per cent of the business comes from our distribution channel network and 20 per cent from the online channel. Going forward, we believe online will grow up to 30 percent,” Rana had anticipated.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.
