Ecoo’s E04 Aurora is arguably the company’s best designed phone. It comes with the very powerful MediaTek MT6752 64-bit, octa-core processor, and has 2GB of RAM to go with the impressive design. What should sound like music to your ears is the fact that the phone now has a ‘Plus’ variant — Ecoo E04 Aurora Plus — which packs in the much needed 3GB RAM.
The rest of the phone remains the same — there’s the same 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display sitting on top of the frame, 16GB of on-board storage, and 16 mega-pixel / 8 mega-pixel front and rear cameras besides a 3000mAh battery. Basically, its just the amount of RAM — and the model name — that has changed.
The price too stays at the same sub-$200 point. Comparing it to the Galaxy S6 is somewhat a far-fetched thing to do, but we here at GizChina have a soft corner for Chinese phones. Resellers such as Geekbuying have listed the phone for the same US$190 as the 2GB RAM version, which should mean that Ecoo are replacing the initial model with this one rather than offering a higher-end option alongside it.
