Elephone’s P7000 didn’t exactly turn out to be as expected for the company (and perhaps even a few buyers), but they’re hoping for a fresh start with the P8000.
The P8000 will have a 5.5-inch full HD display, an MT6753 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board ROM and a massive 4165mAh battery. It’ll run Android 5.1 out of the box, which is pretty impressive and seems standard for most MT6753 phones that have been listed. The cameras on the P8000 will be: 13 mega-pixel rear and 5 mega-pixel front. You can find more information about the specifications of this phone here.
Resellers are accepting pre-orders for the phone, but under Elephone supervision. If you’re wondering how that is done, here it is: resellers provide ‘Elecodes’ to buyers, who then verify the codes at Elephone.hk. In turn, buyers get an email with an official coupon which can then be applied to bring the price down from US$209.99 to US$169.99. Pretty complicated perhaps, but it does sound like an interesting way to keep a tab on your resellers.
