Panasonic Reveals Eluga Name for European Android

Back in December, Panasonic was talking about how it wanted to start expanding the reach of its smartphones out to the global market, and would begin by targeting Europe with the release of a new handset this spring. We got a few details on the Android at the time, and today company continues to fill-in the gaps, announcing the smartphone as the Panasonic Eluga.

We learn a little more about the Eluga today, though largely we’re just seeing previously-mentioned specs confirmed. Those include the presence of a 4.3-inch qHD display, which has been referred to as being an AMOLED component, the presence of an NFC transceiver, and environmental resistance to dust and water. Today Panasonic added the note that handset will weigh a mere 103g, which is pretty darn impressive for a 4.3-inch phone; we just wonder if battery size was forced to take a hit in order to get that low number.

As an electronics company with interests outside smartphones, Panasonic will see to it that media can be easily shared between its products with the Smart Viera app on the Eluga. Beyond that, there’s still plenty we need to learn about the phone; with a release scheduled for sometime this spring (making it sound like Panasonic may not hit its original March target), we’ll hopefully be seeing more of the handset soon.
