We have seen the Elephone P9000, octacore phone, in renders before, but the latest shows more details a familiar look and a laser AF unit.
If you were waiting for the Elephone Vowney, then you may want to hold off as the Elephone P9000 is already on the way and so far it looks better from a design and hardware point of view.
Renders of the P9000 had been supplied by Elephone before, but this new look at the rear shows a sandstone finish, a nod to the Vivo Xshot and a laser autofocus system similar to the OnePlus 2 and the Meizu MX5.
A second render shows the P9000’s bezel-less design (confirming that these images show the range topping device) and a fingerprint scanner on the side of the phone.
Personally I have seen enough Elephone phones over the years to know that renders and promises don’t always meet expectations but I am actually kind of looking forward to seeing the P9000 once it goes on sale.
Gizchina News of the week
According to Elephone sources the P9000 will release on the 20th December and come with a 5.5-inch display, 4GB RAM, 32GB memory,
decacore octacore MT6755 chipset, NFC, 20.7 mega-pixel rear camera and even Android 6! Our insiders also tell us the P9000’s dimensions will be 148.5 x 73 x 8.5mm and that the phone will come with LTE support for U.S networks.
With that in mind, if you are in the United States and fancy an Elephone but not at the price of the P9000 then you can watch out for the upcoming P8000 with added US LTE support too. More details on exactly which bands will be released nearer to the launch date.
P9000 or Vowney? I know where my money would go.
