Elephone M2 full specs revealed (plus photos)


Elephone steadily been gaining the respect it lost after the P7000 fiasco. There’s still a long way to go, however, for the Chinese OEM to be taken as seriously as its competitors.

Nonetheless, we just received news about the upcoming Elephone M2 along with some press photos. The device features a design that signifies a bit of a departure from the usual Elephone styling (and reminds a little of Huawei while at it).

Before we move on to the photos, lets talk about the specifications. The Elephone M2 is now confirmed to have an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM… which, depending on the time frame of the launch, will either make the M2 a full-blown flagship or a high-mid-range smartphone.

Moving on, the M2 will have a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, which the company claims will be sourced from LG. The M2 will keep up with the trends and will pack a fingerprint sensor on the front (which claims to recognize fingerprints in 0.5 seconds) over the home button (which appears to be a physical button). Also on the front will be a 5 mega-pixel camera on top.

The rear camera will be a 13 mega-pixel sensor, the Sony IMX214. Since the M2 is a unibody phone (Elephone’s first), you can expect the shell to feel high quality.

If you’re bored of the run-of-the-mill design, the M2 should be a welcome change with its 7.35mm slim body. There’s no word on when the phone will be available or how much it’ll cost… what would you pay for it?

      people say that the Xiaomi Mi4c with 3GB and sd808 + adreno 418, will cost 200$, so maybe Elephone need to think very very good on a reasonable price

    Hi Yash, why call FIASCO to elephone p7000?

      I was more wondering how Elephone is ‘steadily been gaining the respect’? As an owner of the P7000, besides the terrible shipment, the build quality and software is horrible. How is this now (suddenly) restored?

        For one p8000 is the opposite. Best build quality I’ve seen in Chinese phones since ages and the stock Google rom it uses (the one in their official forums) is a bug free experience. To top it off they released kernel sources with as a result a custom kernel being developed from the community as we speak as well as a couple of custom roms.

        They seemed to have made an 180 degree turn with p8000 (and apparently elephone trunk is getting good press too).

          Eggxactly, the P8000 is very good. Build quality is topnotch.

        ‘steadily been gaining the respect’ because P8000 and Trunk. Also, your statement ‘How is this now (suddenly) restored?’ is in stark contradiction. ‘Steadily’…

      Its simple, what was promised wasn’t delivered.
