Panasonic’s Eluga series has been dormant since 2012, but the company is looking to revive the range through a new Android smartphone for the Indian market. The Japanese giant has started to tease the upcoming device through its Twitter account in the country, but hasn’t mentioned the phone’s exact branding or when we can expect to see it go official.
One of the teaser images read ‘elegance for a new generation’ which could mean that the phone will have a stylish design. The second picture gives us a slight glimpse at the upcoming Panasonic Eluga handset, but only of its rear panel which has textured design and probably a glass coating like the Optimus G from LG. That’s about all of the information we can gather from the teaser images.

Additionally, PhoneArena points out that the upcoming device could be the Eluga U which was spotted in GFXBench. The benchmark website has provided a good deal of information on the handset which will be marketed as a mid-range release. The phone is expected to have a 5-inch 720p HD display with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. It will most likely come with a quad core Snapdragon 400 SOC accompanied by 2GB of RAM. Dual cameras will also be onboard, 13MP rear and 2MP front.

The teaser images for the upcoming Panasonic Eluga handset state that the device is coming soon. We expect it to go official by the end of this week or the next. The Japanese company currently has a small portfolio of devices in India consisting of seven handsets, none priced over Rs 20,000.
