Following the recent unveiling of the Eluga, Panasonic is back on the smartphone scene outing the Panasonic Eluga Power at Mobile World Congress

 

Panasonic have announced that their Panasonic Eluga Power will be landing in Japan on 29 March while the handset will be getting a European release date of April.

Featuring a bevy of high-end innards the Eluga Power will land as the Japanese manufacturer’s new flagship handset with a dual-core processor and ultra fast charging times seeing the device live up to its ‘Power’ billing.

“The Eluga power is a real landmark for us as it redefines everything a modern smartphone should be,” said Toshiya Matsumura, General Manager, Head of Mobile Communications, Panasonic System Communications Europe. “For too long, smartphones have either compromised on looks to embrace new features or dropped functionality in the pursuit of the perfect form.  The Eluga power marks a true turning point – delivering both high performance and high-end style.”

Landing on the larger side of the smartphone bracket, the Eluga Power is to touch down sporting a 5-inch 1280 x 720p HD LCD display with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 dual-core processor providing the grunt for the device that lines up just 9.6mm thick and 133g in weight.

Able to reach a 50 per cent charge following just 30 minutes connected to the mains, the Power’s 1800mAh battery is complemented on the entertainment front by an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and 8GB of internal storage.

Like a number of MWC 2012 unveiled handsets, the Eluga Power will land running Google’s latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS with NFC technology and a water and dustproof coating also included.

Panasonic had originally planned on releasing the Eluga into Europe in March but according to new information via the Verge it appears as though we'll have to wait until April to get our hands on this 'lifeproof' smartphone.
