Panasonic to launch new Android smartphones in Europe
Panasonic have officially announced that they will start selling Android smartphones from March 2012 with their first global model coming with some impressive specs to boot.
While it’s not known what the final product will look like Panasonic have unveiled some screenshots of what they’re calling their Global Model concept, a rough design that will form the basis of the models we can expect to see.
What is known however is that the phone will sport a 4.3 OLED qHD screen, it’ll also feature a super-slim D-shaped design which is definitely in keeping with the current trends as demonstrated by the slinky Samsung Galaxy S2.
That super-slim design will also be dustproof and waterproof making it certainly more ‘life-proof’, finally it’s confirmed that it’ll be running Android and while Panasonic haven’t confirmed which OS it’s an almost dead-cert that it’ll be Ice Cream Sandwich.
No word on hardware yet but this could certainly be something that’ll be making an appearance at Mobile World Congress 2012. What do you think, can Panasonic compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple?
