The Panasonic P81 is powered by a 1.7GHz ‘True Octa-Core processor’ presumably from MediaTek. It comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of inbuilt storage, expandable by another 32GB via microSD card.
The P81 is powered by a 2500mAh battery and, rather disappointingly, runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Panasonic’s own Play Life UI on top. Panasonic is hoping software features like Multi Play and Smart Ringer will help soften the blow of running a dated Android version. While Multi Play lets users run multiple apps side-by-side, Smart Ringer makes it easier to answer calls with a single hand.
