Elephone have released the final press details and promotional video for their Elephone P7000 Pioneer flagship. Will it compete with the popular iOcean MT6752 and JiaYu S3?

Elephone are coming to the Mediatek flagship battle a little later in the game, but they are hoping that their added development time and attention to detail might give them the edge over the JiaYu S3 and iOcean MT6752 Rock phones that are already readily available.

Not much has changed from what leaks were offered a few months back to now with the upcoming official release of the phone. Good news for us as the Elephone P7000 Pioneer promised some of the better specs form the current flagship contenders.

Gizchina News of the week

As well as boasting an octacore, 64bit MT6752 chipset, the P7000 also gets 3GB RAM as standard, 5.5-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 display, rear mounted “Press Touch ID” fingerprint security, 13 mega-pixel Sony rear camera and large 3450mAh battery. Elephone have also continued their unique position on alternate ROM options, and for the Elephone P7000 will offer Android 5.0 Lollipop, MIUI, Flyme, Freeme OS, EMUI along with others.

All that remains now is the final release date and international pricing for the Elephone P7000. What do you think of this Mediatek flagship? Do the added features and ROM options swing you in favour of it or do you prefer phones from iOcean, JiaYu and Meizu?

    Looks surprisingly good! Also liking the narrow bezels and metal construction, wait and see reviews and price. I suppose the hardest part is deciding what ROM to use! lol

    looks gorgeous…especially the back …thanks to elephone for designing the back panel again………

    The renders look great, they seem to have got the specs right at last, but I would have preferred a home button fingerprint sensor.
    Hope you get a review model from Elephone soon Andi!
    Will the bezels be as thin as they look? Will the bigger battery have made it feel like a brick? Is it a metal back cover or plastic? Any chance they thought to put a gyroscope in it? We need to know!…

    Thanks got they managed to reduce the size of the side bezels!..but they did nothing with the up & down ones :/

    I see the cameras have been downgraded from 16&8mp to 13&5mp. Hope they’ve gone for quality! Like the name, maybe the “stereo” speakers will have Japanese HiFi sound!
    If price stays at $250 or less I think its good.
    Just need to see the real thing, but that could still be weeks away.

      If was 16MP you couldn’t expect real 16MP, just interpolated 13MP. So now, they are just plannning to be legit on specs. Hope this is a REAL Sony camera.

    Pioneer or Pionner make up your mind already lol.

    No glass protection like always right? heh.

    I don’t like Elephone, they proved more than once to sell new models and then forget about them. How could you even give credit to a company that can’t spell the name of their new phone right on their promotional video (Pioneer/Pionner)?

    That delicious 3450mAh battery is calling out to me. I need it.

    remove black bars top and bottom of the display and will become 6+.

    I was looking for this phone, but I can clearly see some photoshop in the promo video.
    look at my attached photo, you can see the OS screen is not fit well to the phone: it’s almost have no bezels on the top + button when it have later in the video, and the left bezel is diagonal due to bad photoshop.

    Sad, because I really wanted this phone. will wait for reviews.

      yeah….you are right……the user interface also is different

      after seeing the “real photos” of it, it proves to be even worse. slim bezels, yes. but with a huge black frame around the screen (which in my opinion should count as bezels, too, but doesn’t somehow). i find this to be disgustingly ugly to the eye, as it seems to be badly put together…

    Try to find Elephone, Jiayu and all those “second rate” chinese brands on Taobao. Surprise: you can find their phones, but no one is buying them (elephone 1-2 sold per model. Jiayu <50 sold per rmodel). ALso they don't have "official" tmall taobao brand stores and are not available on the regular phone resellers that sell well known chinese domestic market phones. These brands seem to exist for the sole purpose of selling phones outside of China, and with those foreign end customers hidden behind a layer of (usually shady) resellers like efox they won't have to worry too much about after sales service.

    Next try Xiaomi, Vivo, Meizu, Oppo, ZTE and Coolpad on Taobao. Thousands of units sold. If you sell those customers crap and they will complain on Taobao in the feedback section by the hundreds.

    I think companies need to feel the pain of their own bad products before they will really do their best to improve them.

      JiaYu makes awesome phones.

    • Lazar Prodanovic

      Jiayu is a top notch manufacturer with proven quality, much better than most of your top tier. Jiayu is present in EU. How about that you start reading some Amazon reviews?

    Nothing “pioneering” here and personally I prefer what I am seeing from the ASUS ZENFONE 2 and the KINGZONE Z1. Elephone need to get their customer service and support fixed before they can even be considered a credible option as a reliable telephone supplier. Anyone in any doubt about Elephone’s ability to support them should just take a quick look at their “support” forums here: http://bbs.elephone.hk/forum-157-1.html#.VP9f8ZNPltQ

    I consider myself a “smartphone dummy” – all I want is a phone I can turn on and it’ll make phone calls and wifi connections so I can access the WWW. Buy an Elephone and you really need to be something of a “phone tinkerer” – I can’t be bothered with that. Check out their forums and see whether you are up for the challenge.

    • Paul Sleight

      Perhaps you should consider an iPhone then! lol

    One of the most beautiful phones… if this bezels aren’t there. And, unfortunately, they are there. Elephone just use photoshop to deceive customers. A pity.

      Hope the device will be better than their Photoshop skill.

    With a Large Number of Different Top Notch Roms Like MIUI, Cyanogen. It is an amazing option. Xiaomi Does not offer such value for money in 5.5 inch screen real estate. It does look interesting. Will anxiously wait for reviews . . . !

    Very nice design but too thick

    Seeing this promotional video remembering me about UMI when they release promotional video for their ZERO. When on their video, UMI ZERO have 16GB RAM. LOL

    Recent rumours say that Elephone reached to an agreement to go official in Greece. Good move in my opinion since they are “ok” phones at an “ok” price.

    Elephone is one of the most exciting companies in the industry to follow during their pre-release but sadly the end product never quite lives up to the hype. It seems like every month they have a new phone being announced, some which never see the light of day (I’m looking at you P4000).

    Europe, we have a problem, our Euro is falling rapidly and the online shops are default on dollar :(((. Now for this phone you must pay 40 Euros more

      Not the right frequencies. Also looks more expensive.
