Elephone want two first this year. They are want to be the first phone maker to launch a Helio P10 powered smartphone and they hope to be the first Chinese phone maker to get Android 6.0 too.
To be fair we believe Huawei are going to beat Elephone to the Marshmallow prize with their Nexus phone, but they could be second to get Android 6.0 and there is a strong possibility of them releasing the first Helio P10 device.
Elephone’s aims are all centered around the 3 Elephone P9000 phones which they plan to release some time later in the year.
Our contact at the company says that the Elephone P9000 series will be the first handsets in the world that are powered by the Mediatek Helio P10 (MT6755) octa-core CPU and run Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
