We get a hands-on look at the Panasonic’s new smartphones the Eluga and Eluga Power at MWC 2012.
Panasonic Eluga and Eluga Power First Look video review
We saw the Panasonic Eluga last week in Hamburg but Panasonic has already announced a more powerful version of the handset, the Eluga Power.
The Power includes a 1.5GHz dual-core processor – compared to the Eluga’s 1GHz version – and also has a larger 5-inch touchscreen with a 1280x720p resolution.
The large screen means the Power is straying close to being more of a tablet than a phone, but the device is still only 9.6mm thick and, like the Eluga, is water and dust proof.
Unlike the Eluga the Power comes loaded with the latest version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich. This delivers improved multi-tasking and a nicer user interface.
A generous 1,800mAh battery is included to keep everything powered – although keeping such a large screen illuminated may drain it fairly quickly.
An 8Mp camera is included for taking still photos and this can also record video at full HD 1080p resolution.
