This hands on video posted by Elephone shows just how good the Elephone M1 looks, but what about those bezels.
When we first posted leaks of the Elephone M1 we were excited by the prospect of the phone. Those early images promised a phone with Elephone’s low-cost, good hardware, but an all new build quality not seen from the phone maker before.
The above video does confirm a great looking device with beautiful alloy construction and interesting floating screen design (similar to the OnePlus 2), but it also shows us something else which has plagued recent Elephone devices.

If you didn’t catch them the first time around watch the video again and check out the bezels on the phone. When the screen shows a black background the bezels are notable but once visible they are very thick.
The thickness of the bezels do explain why the 5.5-incher looks so huge in the hand. If you can look past the black borders though the device does also feature a rear fingerprint scanner, and will be the first USB Type C Elephone to be launched.
Other details include a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 8 mega-pixel front and 1.3Ghz Mediatek processor.
