Panasonic Wants to Take Over Europe, Prepares to Launch 4.3 inch OLED qHD Phone in March
Panasonic has just detailed its plans to reach the international market with its devices, after a good and long run in the local Japanese market. The company will released a yet unnamed smartphone in Europe in March and you can see the device below.
we’re dealing here with a 4.3 inch OLED that relies on an ultra slim D-shaped design, that reminds me a lot of the Samsung Omnia 7. This slim Android smartphone will have a very small bezel and it will come with qHD display resolution and NFC technology. Europe will be used as a first step to reach the global market and phones will come to the US as well. Panasonic wants to sel about 9 million units outside of Japan by the end of March 2016.
The company aims at selling 1.5 million phones in Europe in the next fiscal year. The lineup of the company will be expanded, as the brand gets ready to compete with fellow countrymen Sony, that will drop the Sony Ericsson branding and develop handsets simply known as Sony. Will Panasonic succeed in making a dent in the rivals’ Android market share? We’ll just have to wait and see…
