Panasonic's new P-02E Android "phablet" has been confirmed by a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) entry, which will allow the Japanese company to officially start selling the device. However, the device is unlikely to be sold in the U.S. and is likely to be a Japan-exclusive sold by the country's NTT Docomo telecom company.

Panasonic is not a big player in the smartphone or tablet market, which is why its new high-end device began turning heads when it was first rumored. Check out the features and specifications of the P-02E phabet below.

Processor

The Web site, Ubergizmo, which saw the FCC listing for the device, reports that the P-02E packs in a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked. As one of the most powerful chipsets available for mobile devices today, this makes the Panasonic P-02E at par with other high-end devices built by mobile industry key players such as Samsung, HTC, and even Apple.

Display

At a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, the display of Panasonic's new handset is speculated to be 5 inches, putting it in the realm of a "phablet" and among the biggest devices of its kind on the market.

Operating System

FCC requires smartphones to use the latest software available during production, which means the P-02E will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Connectivity

The device will come with standards like Wi-iFi, Bluetooth, and will also support LTE and NFC. The FCC filing says that it will feature wireless charging in Japan, but not in the U.S. if it ever makes it to the region. Curiously, the device also features a TV antenna for mobile TV.

No details regarding the device's release date is currently available.
