Elephone want your feedback on their new concept phone


elephone concept

Elephone are working on a new concept smartphone with an odd screen size and leather patches on the rear, and they want your input.

Seeing a new Elephone smartphone is hardly a rare event, but this new concept phone is a little different for a few reasons. The currently unamed phone (it’s not called the QQ as some sources suggest), will feature a unique pattern on the rear and two colourful leather patches. In the photos those patches are orange, but Elephone want to know which colours you would prefer to see and also if readers have any suggestions for the name.

At this point this is only a concept phone and Elephone have only decided on a 5.3-inch display for the final specs. 5.3-inch is quite an odd size, and generally we see either 5-inch, 5.2-inch or 5.5-inch phones.

So what do you think of this latest concept from Elephone? What about the screen size, and what would you name it? Any other ideas about the hardware?

    The rear camera looks super odd, it should be round shaped with quality border and internal optics. And don’t mess with sensors – saw the ecoo 06 hands on antutu video, you scrolled down the info tab, but didn’t expose the sensor info, we know you dumped some sensor to keep price low or to falsify clients who don’t understand about sensors but later get in trouble.

      Sensor info doesn’t mean anything, it can all be manipulated. Interpolated sensors show the interpolated result not original.

    Hmm, how would I name this device. Elephone Ugly perhaps? Names are there to specify the model by one or more specs. Thinks Ugly says it all.

    Although I like the fact that they are actually trying something new.

    I would replace the orange with neon green.

    Personally I find that it is a well balanced size. My actual phone have this size and I’m happy with that. But it is most important to know the dimension ratio. A phone should be able to be kept in a jeans’s pocket.

    And the Elephone hype machine continues.

    Can you please stop promoting them until they learn how to release quality hardware on a consistent basis.

      reminds me of the last South Park season…Elephone should replace their leather patches by organic hemp patches to open a store in ChiTPaTown !

    Want my opinion Elephone? Listen closely and read this over and over again.

    STOP WITH THE GIMMICKS AND CONCENTRATE JUST ON MAKING A GOOD PHONE.

    Once you do that you don’t need gimmicks to sell phones. Create one good phone for each category (low, mid range and flagship) instead of a new phone ever month.

    Maybe they could target Ubuntu Phone as it’s got all the hallmarks of brand colours. Looks nice to me. I like that 70’s retro style electronics look, from the greats like Sir Clive Sinclair.

    Its hard to keep up with them these days.

    Damn ! looks like my old BenQ E61 ! one of the first music phone which featured music controls on the top and a stylish black/orange plastic frame !

    According to this, the best name for this phone would be Elephone E61 😀
    And it’s price $40.
