According to recent rumours flying around the tech inclined blogosphere, Panasonic is planning to re-enter the European smartphone market with the Eluga model in April.
The launch has been delayed by a month due to yet unknown reasons. The Panasonic Eluga is advertised as the perfect smartphone for the urban jungle thanks to its slick design and waterproof/dustproof features.
Future users are even teased to take Eluga on an underwater test. The design has a curved edge to fit in the user's palm perfectly and also comes with a 7.8mm slim and light body weighing in at only 103g. The 4.3 inch display also has a QHD resolution.
The tech specifications sheet mentions a 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and an 8MP camera.
The smartphone will be released in the European and Japanese markets with Android Gingerbread, but the company announced that an update to Ice Cream Sandwich will be available in the summer. The Japanese customers will be the first to get the new device, as a release on this market has been announced on March 29th.
