Elephone give us another video hands on off the Elephone Vowney

Elephone have posted another video hands on showing the Elephone Vowney in action, take a look after the jump.

It is starting to look like the Chinese phone world is using the launch of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 this morning to help jump start interest in other phones. Just today UMi announced the full specs of the UMi Rome, ZTE launched the Small Fresh 3, Blackview got in on the act with the Omega Pro, and now we have Elephone.

This time around Elephone are showing us the Elephone Vowney (again) in a hands on video. This isn’t the first time the 2K smartphone has been seen on video, but this is one of the longer hands on we have seen so far and appears to show a final model (rather than the pre-production model I tried in the summer).

Gizchina News of the week

Elephone gave the Vowney plenty of appealing flagship specifications including the aforementioned 2K display, plus 21 mega-pixel main camera, powerful chipset and up to 4GB RAM.

Distributer and reseller sites are currently selling the Elephone Vowney for around $299.99, which looked like a bargain at the start of the year, but looks less and less appealing as time goes by and more phones are launched.

    Good description of the topic. The Vowney is delayed till the 1st of December before production run. They wont manufacture till they have Android done so expect Dec the 7th till anyone sees any units if all goes well.

      The Vowney has been delayed since August, I wouldn’t count on any one actually seeing this phone in December, maybe December of 2016.

    The only thing I dislike is the on-screen navigation. They really need to get the smart captive sensors to do those tasks or put in three captive sensors with leds.

    Awful black band with those navigation buttons… What are they playing at… Or is this just because the rom is unfinished?

      This is a new trend in Chinese phones, in an attempt to make phone bezels look”thinner” they come with that hideous black band. With the band added the bezel is the same size.

    Wasn’t this supposed to launch like 6 months ago? Typical Elephone, what will follow is another 3 months of teasers and then silence. At the same time they will announce 14 flagship phones for 2016.
