With 20 inches of screen size, the Panasonic TOUGHPAD 4K UT-MB5 has a 4K resolution which showcases 3840 x 2560 pixels. If you need a moment to process this information, we would totally understand. For all of you who just heard about the 4K, this is the technology that movies and televisions normally have.

The graphics processor is courtesy of the NVIDIA GeForce 745M while RAM only comes in 4 GB. The Pro version of this tablet has 8 GB but it is also more expensive. The good thing is that its hard drive has 256 GB of capacity.

What Needs More Improvement

The Panasonic TOUGHPAD 4K UT-MB5 was unveiled for the first time in Berlin but the company only used a prototype method. This means that they are willing to accept reviews and there is still time to tweak the tablet further. To be specific, gadget experts are saying that Panasonic should incorporate a larger battery capacity than the 3180 mAh. Unfortunately, because of the massive screen size, the TOUGHPAD 4K UT-MB5 can only last for 2 hours of life for average use.
