The other day we reported that a certain Panasonic P-02E was spotted in server logs, leading to speculation that this could be a 5” phablet of Panasonic’s own making. Well thanks to an FCC sighting, we now know that the device is indeed for real along with some of its confirmed specs. For starters the P-02E will feature a 5” 1080p Full HD display, a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor under the hood, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, wireless charging support, a microSD card slot for memory expansion, along with LTE and NFC support. Unfortunately it seems that even though the device was spotted at the FCC, chances are the Panasonic P-02E will be limited to the Japanese market.
Despite Panasonic expressing their interest in expanding beyond Japan and into Europe, those plans were soon cancelled and the Japanese company announced that come March 2013, they would be halting all sales of their smartphones in Europe. We guess while the Eluga did feature some decent specs, it wasn’t enough to make consumers go for it versus the competition, but what do you think about the P-02E? Is that a phone you could see yourself buying?
