Following on from yesterday’s news that Elephone would release a flagship phone with 2K display and Windows/Android OS we have more details of that phone, plus 3 other upcoming Elephone devices.
Elephone have come a long way in the few years that we have known the company. We have seen the brand change from a relatively unknown manufacturer, to one of the fastest moving Chinese phone makers to date.
Yesterday we reported that a flagship Elephone phone with 2K display and Intel processor had been spied at a trade show in Hong Kong, after contacting Elephone about the device they revealed more details along with details of 3 more upcoming Elephone phones.
2K Flagship Elephone (Version B)
This is obviously not the final name of this device, but looking at the hardware on offer it is obviously going to be the jewel in the Elephone crown. Specifications for this flagship phone include a quad-core Intel processor, 3GB RAM and a 2K 2560 x 1440 resolution display.
The gold body is there to show that it is the top of the range model, and also distinguish itself as the model offering either Windows 10 or Android 5.0 Lollipop. Other details include a 20 mega-pixel camera, possibly a Sony IMX230, 3800mAh battery and 32GB internal memory. No pricing at this stage, but a release in June is mentioned on the promotional material.
2K Flagship Elephone (Version A)
Version A looks to be basically the same device as the phone mentioned above. It has a 2K display 5.5-inch display, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, Sony 20.7 mega-pixel camera, but only the option to run Android 5.0. The chipset has been switched from an Intel model to a flagship Mediatek MT6795, the same processor we have seen in other flagship Chinese phones. Version A also shows a rear fingerprint scanner, we assume version B will also have the same. A May release date is scheduled for this model of the phone.
We reported on the Elephone P4000 a while back, but it comes as no surprise that the phone has yet to go on the market. The selling point of te P4000 is its battery life coming with a large 4800mAh battery, very large in fact for a 5-inch HD phone with 64bit quad-core processor. Elephone will use the Mediatek MT6735 in the P4000 for LTE support, there will be just 1GB RAM, 2 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel rear. Expect the Elephone P4000 to launch in May.
The G9 is the super affordable phone of the bunch. Elephone say that they haven’t decided on the final price for the G9 but expect it to be very low. Specs include Mediatek MT6735, LTE, and 4.5-inch FWVGA display. Two options will be available from a super low-cost 512mb RAM model to a 1GB RAM version. The Elephone G9 should be on sale later this month.
Along with the above 4 phones we should also begin seeing Elephone P7000 reviews soon, and customers who have preordered them can expect to see them in the coming weeks.
What do you think of the upcoming Elephone line up? Any standout models here you would like for yourself?
