Panasonic ELUGA Power steps in, sports 5-inch display, Snapdragon S4 processor
And just like that, the Panasonic ELUGA Power has been made official becoming the second Android smartphone in the company's ELUGA lineup. Just like recent rumors suggested, it is a premium Android handset, and by the looks of it, the ELUGA Power will rival devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note and the LG Optimus Vu. That is because its front is occupied by a massive 5-inch display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. Inside it we see a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, so performance is expected to be top notch. And that is not bad for a device with a waistline of just 9.6 millimeters.

The 8-megapixel camera on the back of the Panasonic ELUGA Power does not carry a LUMIX branding like previously speculated, but that doesn't mean that its photos and videos will look bad. We will get to judge the device's photographic capabilities once we get to take it for a spin. Providing the juice is a 1,800mAh battery that can quick-charge up to 50 percent in only 30 minutes, according to Panasonic. Last but not least, NFC support is in tow, and the device's 8 gigabytes of on-board storage can be expanded by up to 32 additional gigs thanks to its microSD card slot. Running the show is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which comes out of the box. Yes, folks, no need to wait for an update.

Pricing and availability of the Panasonic ELUGA Power are yet to be announced, but we will inform you on these details as soon as we have more information.

Not sure I'm digging the hard edges and sharp corners.. or I'm just used to my GNX. I think I prefer softer corners, and I don't like that the front facing camera is so visible. The battery is a bit of a let down too.. why not add a mm to the thickness and get the battery over 2k mah??
