Panasonic wants a share of the buzz at the Mobile World Congress with the announcement of their new flagship phone, the Eluga Power.
For starters, it has a wide 5 inch HD LCD display, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, and is running Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Eluga Power will sit comfortably in the hands of those capable of gripping an adult’s head and is a good alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note or the LG Optimus Vu. What separates the Eluga Power from the rest of the big-screen smartphones out there is its IP57 certification, which means it is capable of resisting dust and water.
Another impressive feat is its capability to reach 50% charge capacity in just 30 minutes with its 1,800mAh battery. Check out the full specs below.
