Meet Panasonic's first 64-bit, Android Lollipop smartphone: the Eluga U2
Not long ago, Panasonic surprised us with the Lumix CM1, a unique Android smartphone that packs a 1-inch camera sensor. While the CM1 is a high-end, expensive device (it will be released this summer in the US, possibly for around $1,000), Panasonic also has a new affordable smartphone. Called Eluga U2, the affordable handset that we're talking about was released this week in Taiwan.

Priced at around $254 (unlocked), the Panasonic Eluga U2 is the Japanese company's first smartphone to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, as well as the first to be powered by a 64-bit, quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor.

The new handset sports a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and has LTE connectivity. Other features include a 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. The U2 measures 141.5 x 71 x 7.95 mm, weighs 131 grams, and comes with a 2500 mAh battery. Overall, this seems to be a very nice device for its price, wouldn't you agree?

We don't know if Panasonic is planning to launch the Eluga U2 outside of Asia, but we will let you know when we find out.
