Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of chatter about the Panasonic Eluga U2 that will be the company's first ever 64-bit device. It has now been officially revealed in Taiwan.
Panasonic today announced their first 64-bit smartphone. It's not a new flagship device; the first 64-bit Smartphone from Japan's most successful electronics company is a mid-end phone.
The Panasonic Eluga E2 - the legitimate successor of the Eluga U- is priced at affordable $254 (Rs. 16,002) for Taiwan. Availability for other countries is yet to be detailed, notes GSMArena.

The Eluga U2 comes with a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixel resolution and offers a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, alongside 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
On the camera front, it comes with a 13MP (rear) and a 5MP (front) shooter. The handset is backed up by a 2500 mAh battery and also offers LTE connectivity. The software side of things is handled by Android 4.4 KitKat.
