Panasonic P-02E Android smartphone is real, clears the FCC on its way to Japan
So, it turns out that the Panasonic P-02E exists not only in the realm of speculations. The smartphone has been given the green light by the FCC, and a few more details about it can be extracted from its filing. As expected, the device is headed to Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo. In addition to the usual connectivity features like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, there's also support for LTE, NFC, and mobile TV (yup, it has a retractable antenna). Interestingly, the handset also has wireless charging capabilities, which is always nice.

The Panasonic P-02E leaked not long ago, along with several of its hardware features, revealed by a server log. It is clearly a high-end Android device, judging by the fact that it has a 1920 by 1080 pixel display, presumably around 5 inches in size. It is also known that it runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but that's pretty much all for now in terms of specifications. Like many other smartphones sold in Japan, the Panasonic P-02E will probably be waterproof, but that's just a guess.

Since Panasonic will retain its focus solely on its homeland market in order to trim down its losses, we aren't expecting the P-02E, or any of the company's phones, for that matter, to be released in the U.S. or Europe. That's why even though the device now has the FCC's seal of approval, you'll probably never see it on a retailer's shelve near you.

on paper, japanese phones looks awesome. but once they are release in the international market and get reviewed, they disappoint big time.

They're made specifically for the network, so can't really be for international market.

Cool. Full HD on the phone it is cool. But it takes a lot of memory space. Probably DLNA would be right for this phone. Where you can watch video stored on other device. I prefer ArkMC program for this task.
