Panasonic Launches ELUGA: Stylish and Slim Android smartphone in Europe

  • 01ELUGAWATER.jpg

Say hello to Panasonic's new smartphone - the ELUGA - an ultra-slim, high specification waterproof smartphone for the style conscious in Europe.

The ELUGA - whose name stems from the phrase 'elegant user-oriented gateway' - weighs in at just 103g, making it the lightest Android™ smartphone in Europe. As well as being waterproof, the ELUGA packs one of the largest screen ratio on the market - with a display comprising 66% of the phone's body, thanks to its super-thin frame.

With a 7.8mm profile along the entire length of the phone, the ultra-slim D shape is designed not to ruin the line of clothes - even the ELUGA's high quality 8MP camera lens lies flat against the phone's chassis.

Its unique specifications include:

  • International standard IP57 water and dustproofing. Protected for up to a depth of 1 metre for up to 30 minutes in water, and protected against dust (75 micrometers or less in diameter/no harmful deposit) if left near or in it for eight hours or less.
  • Near-field communication (NFC) technology, meaning the phone is ready for 'no touch' interactions, including contactless payments.
  • Swipe and Share, letting users wirelessly 'throw' pictures from their phone to a TV or cloud service, or stream movies from their phone to a TV. The VieraRemote app also enables the phone to be used as a remote control for other electronic devices in the home (such as a Viera TV, DIGA Blu-ray player and recorder, home cinema system, or digital still camera).

The ELUGA will also feature 'eco mode', Panasonic's unique power-saving technology which provides significant environmental benefit by shutting down non-essential features when the phone is running low on battery power.
