Elephone add 850mhz band and Gorilla Glass rear to Elephone S2 and S2 Plus

Elephone S2 S2 Plus

Elephone have added additional network support and durability to both the Elephone S2 and S2 Plus smartphones.

The Elephone S2 and S2 Plus are some of the most recent phone from Elephone, and by far the best looking in terms of build quality and materials used. Both phones come with alloy chassis with glass front and rear panels, reminiscent of the iPhone, and current Oppo, Vivo and Huawei phones.

I’ve had a chance to handle both devices at a pre-production stage and they felt lightweight and looked pretty good, but two details have changed since my time with the phones. The first is that Elephone are now using Gorilla Glass glass on the front and the rear of the devices (originally it was only the front), a necessary addition to any phone featuring a dual glass design.

The other change isn’t a physical one, but one that will extend the usability of the S2 and S2/Plus to other users, the addition of 850mhz FDD-LTE support. With 850mhz, the Elephone S2 and S2 Plus should now work on Sprint in the USA, U.S Cellular, in addition to networks in Malaysia, Cambodia, Indonesia, The Philippines, Korea and more.

Other features of the phones remain the same. The Elephone S2 has a 5-inch display with 2100mAh battery while the S2 Plus has a 5.5-inch display and 2600mAh battery. Both phones have Mediatek MT6735 processors, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel main camera, 2 mega-pixel front and Android 5.1 Lollipop.
