Elephone P6000 gets listed with Android 5.0 Lollipop as standard


elephone p6000

Elephone have updated their website to include their new Elephone P6000 64bit phone that will ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

As far as we know, there are exactly 0 Chinese smartphones that you can buy right now which come with Android 5.0 Lollipop loaded on them out of the box. There are ROMS for the Xiaomi Mi3 and OPO that give them Lollipop, but nothing direct from the manufacturer yet.

With that in mind the Elephone P6000 begins to look more attractive by the second! Already the phone has been confirmed to get a quad-core 64bit Mediatek chipset, with 2GB RAM, and now the official product page for the phone shows Android 5.0 Lollipop too!

Elephone still need to advice fans on the official launch date of the P6000, however pricing has been rumoured to be around $170! Darn cheap for a 64bit, 2GB, LTE phone running the latest version of Android.

Looking back over Elephone’s year we hope the P6000 has a little added attention to quality and build materials. Elephone have already proven they can do affordable, not they need to boost build.

    So build quality is poor with this brand?

      Not poor, but it’s not good, the place where they get their OEM’s doesn’t seems to care that much about the build quality, just the specs and price.

        That is not the case at all. Most Elephone’s are made by Shenzen KVD who also makes (and owns) the brand Doogee. Doogee Phones are excellent quality. Elephone is probably buying cheaper and lesser quality parts. The OEMs don’t control what parts the company uses they just put them together.

      Hi Saor; I purchased 2 Elephone P8’s within the past 12 months. I “loved them” until 1 month ago. The “charger / USB port” carries a circuit for the phone’s speaker. The circuit board that contains that USB port has snapped (presumably after repeated charging); rendering the “ring tones; notifications, music and message received” sounds totally inaudible. I won’t buy another ELEPHONE.

    Small Mistake man…….
    ELEPHONE not going to ship P6000 with Android 5.0……..
    they are going to shit ship it with 4.4.4…….
    5.0 only through OTA update……
    but not they mentioned when they going to update

      Yup, we spotted that today after checking the specs page. They should really add a disclaimer to the main P6000 page as many are going to look at that (as we did) and believe 5.0 comes as standard! Added a new post today

    The problem with Elephone is they announces phones and then don’t release them for months if ever. The P4000 still hasn’t be released despite all 3 of its sister phoens (Doogee Hitman, Zeaplus 4 and No. 1 Mi4) all being available.
