Panasonic follows Eluga with Eluga Power handsetby Steven Mostyn - Mar 2 2012, 13:09
Following on from the recent unveiling of the Eluga, which is Panasonic’s first smartphone offering outside of Japan, the long-standing technology giant has now announced the Eluga Power handset.
Also set for availability beyond Panasonic’s home market, the Eluga Power joins the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Note and LG’s Optimus Vu in boasting a sprawling 5.0-inch OLED touchscreen (720p).
It also comes equipped with version 4.0 of Google Android (Ice Cream Sandwich), a snappy 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 processor, a rear-facing 8.0 mega-pixel camera, 1080p video recording, and a physical profile of 9.7mm.
The original Eluga runs on a 4.3-inch OLED screen, a 1GHz dual-core Texas Instruments processor, and a physical profile of 7.8mm.
Although not all the Power’s specs have been confirmed, we think it’s safe to assume it will include the same dustproof and waterproof protection seen on the Eluga, along with 1GB of RAM and at least 8GBs of data storage.
Panasonic has not yet said how much the Eluga Power will cost or when it will be available. Take a look at in action via the following hands-on video clip:
