Exclusive: Elephone P8000 full specs revealed, to offer MT6753 plus 4200mAh battery


Elephone have this knack of making some good looking phones, but in the end delaying production for some reason. While that may be true for a majority of their products, I’m sincerely hoping the upcoming P8000 doesn’t live the same fate, for the phone looks pretty darn good from the outset.

Our sources have confirmed most part of the specifications of the upcoming Elephone P8000. The phone will have not the MT6752, but the next-gen MediaTek MT6753 64-bit SoC, which is essentially a member of the MT6752 family, but will reportedly be a knocked down version of the same with a clock rate between 1.3-1.5GHz through the eight Cortex-A53 cores.

Earlier leaks of the phone pointed at a 13 mega-pixel rear camera that the phone might have, but it turns out that the P8000 might get a 16 mega-pixel shooter upgrade on the carbon-fiber textured back. Looks wise, the P8000 certainly is one of the best looking Elephone devices till date, despite the conspicuous bezels.

Elephone P8000 Specifications

  • 5.5-inch display
  • MediaTek MT6753 SoC
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB ROM
  • 13/16 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 8 mega-pixel front camera
  • 4200mAh battery
  • MediaTek’s WorldMode 4G LTE
  • Fingerprint sensor

Display specifications aren’t fully confirmed yet… resolution wise. But what’s known for certain is that the panel will be a 5.5-inch once.

According to rumours, the phone will also get Android Lollipop very soon. We’ve seen in the past that Elephone are pretty serious about getting 3rd party ROMs working on their devices, so an official Lollipop update should certainly be a possibility for the phone… but at the same time, the timeline of the delivery is as important.

4200mAh battery

A 4200mAh battery will power the P8000, which is something I’m liking very much. It isn’t clear as yet if it’ll be a built-in cell or a removable battery, but it may well be possible that its non-removable simply to keep thickness at a minimum.

Elephone have previously shown they love big batteries; the P5000, for instance, had a 5350mAh cell. The upcoming P4000 too is expected to have something around that range!

Also seen on the rear is the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 style fingerprint sensor on the rear, which hopefully will be a ‘touch’ and not a ‘swipe’ type of a sensor.

Coolicool already have a listing up for the device, but it doesn’t seem to be very accurate at the time of writing this article. Nonetheless, if you’re very keen, you can take a look at the listing here.

    So this is unlikely to be better than the p7000, just different. Perhaps made by a different manufacturer for Elephone. Where’s the rumoured mt6795 phone with 2k screen? Will that be the P9000?
    Still living in hope…

    Small and white physical bazels with the large and black virtual bazels on the screen 🙂 Work harder Elephone!

    Seriously, who comes up with these CPU naming conventions? So let me get this straight: It’s faster when you go from MT6592 to MT6595, and likewise from MT6732 to MT6752, but it’s slower when you go from MT6752 to MT6753? Arggh

        Conspicuous is a word in English meaning, “easily seen or noticed; readily visible or observable.” It’s not a new name for them now.

    I know I should stick to rugged devices, but the same goes for all smart phones, when will a company reinvent the phone or at least give us something besides the latest specs.
