While the HTC Droid DNA is the only official 1080p phone available in the United States right now, many new 1080p handsets are preparing for launch around the globe. Now it seems that Panasonic might be planning a 1080p smartphone of their own.

Panasonic certainly started out its new mobile European adventure with some bold goals, but things didn’t go down as the Japanese hoped. With just two pretty average high-end phones, which had trouble being released when they were still moderately attractive, it couldn’t have been any other way, but instead of trying to be better, Panasonic seems to have abandoned the fight altogether.
