New portion of the Elephone riddles


Elephone is recently trying to play being mysterious, at least with the information about the upcoming Elephone P9000 Edge model. Few pictures here and there and we even have to guess and wonder whats on them for real.

You surely remember our last two small Elephone riddles and the guessing game about the meaning of the pictures, along the later reveal that it’s showing dual camera setup with dual LED flash. Then came another big question about the location of the fingerprint sensor.

One of the most voted and guessed option has been the scanner location being put into one of the edge buttons or the edge itself, but todays pictures are clearly showing that nothing extravagant or exotic is coming with P9000 Edge. The fingerprint scanner is going to be integrated in the Home button and all the extravagancy is limited to red circle around it.

Elephone riddles But let’s continue with Elephone riddle tradition and let’s try to guess the processor used in the P9000 Edge. Is it going to be the usual suspects with Helio P10 or X20? Or is Elephone going to surprise everybody with Helio X25? Or some other obscure solution? Let us know in comments under the article.

      They really need to stop that. It’s redundant and annoying

        But you need to admit that their advertising team is really persistent LOL.

        It is almost a joke that Elephone have different event for every week. Even bigger name like Xiaomi also not like this. Talk big but big empty bullshit inside. NATO = No Action Talk Only

        Too bad Elephone products normaly sucks based on a lot of buyer review. 3 months usage then spoil is not a good advertising for internet.

        They forget that internet is a powerful tool where people can freely share their bad experiences with elephoney smartphones.

          When you are a really small player in this industry, you don’t have others choice than making noise every week.
          Let’s just hope that this year they will have the maturity to focus on 1 or 2 devices.

          I almost feel sorry for them because the design is improving. I hope they will work on their weakness

    I love the red/black combo and so far the phone looks like a winner with both clean and advance frontal design, including the dual camera technology on the back. It’s now a case of the camera resolutions, the SoC, and ultimately to time-to-market. If Elephone could pull off a P9000 Edge release next month or maybe even into June then they may have a winner, especially if the Edge gets the “P9000” treatment.

    My guess it’s a X20 with two 13MP cameras on the back and a 8MP on front. If they were to put in dual 16MP cameras or even a 21MP combined with a 13MP for depth of field and other colour tricks, then they have street-cred. The 13MP option is simply using old stock.

      whats street-cred ?

      also , where u from ?

      • E8hffff

        street-credit is community credence, or community approval but with a leaning to urban younger crowd.

    The color looks great (would love to se a carmín red or a deep metallic blue or green in my next phone)
    But why the tease?????

    The VOWNEY was announced the same time around last year only to show up when the party for the X10 was over…
    If they don’t hurry up and deliver on the Edge they are dead for good.

    The P9000-Edge should be out in the market no later than may or it won’t be any relevant just like the fate of the VOWNEY was.

    • Muhammad Yasir
      April 26, 2016

      deliver on the Edge , lol thats good

    • E8hffff
      April 26, 2016

      Exactly. The Vowney still isn’t a bad purchase for the hardware, but with the near zero support it’s a dead anchor.

    Glad to know that their staff is skilled at Photoshop. But just a thing: Sept 4 will be a Sunday.

      Yes indeed. SepteMber not September.

          Are you really saying that Septenber is German dude. I suggest you open a German dictionary.

              We will. At the end of the month. We go to Hamburg. That’s in Germany for your information. Und das gleiche machen wer wieder in September.

    If it’s helio x25, i bet elephone will release it with 350usd or more, without gyro.

    Can we have full disclosure on the relationship between Gizchina and Elephone please? This is becoming nauseating.

    • E8hffff
      April 27, 2016

      Comments are always super high on Elephone items. Elephone are a unique company that have both promise and intrigue. Elephone also has that controversial side, like doing out their customer.

      • TheOracle
        April 27, 2016

        Ok. Based on your garbled comment you have a relationship with them. Given the trends on this site lately, indeed over the last few years regarding some truly lacking brands, I’m very suspect. I’m also very disappointed. I’m in the “check this site once in a while” category because there’s no objectivity here. Very sad since this is my first goto site each morning. Bye, bye Andy.

        • E8hffff

          GizChina is a chinese tech news site. Why would they not report Elephone? Like I said they also garnish high comment counts on Elephone articles.

          What company do you think lacks attention?

          • TheOracle
            April 28, 2016

            I’m on various China phone forums and check out other sites. Elephone doesn’t get anywhere near the type of coverage that it gets here. It’s glaring.

        • E8hffff
          April 27, 2016

          Btw I have no affiliation with GizChina, nor Elephone even though I know someone close to the company but that doesn’t make me bias.

        • E8hffff
          April 27, 2016

          As an example I just recently recommended my friend buy a Zopo Speed 8 from GizChina shop. I think they are a solid purchase before other phones hit. I’m personally interested in the Doogee F7 Pro, the Vernee Apollo, and maybe now the Elephone Edge.

          I think your claims of bias are ill founded.

    I don’t know why you checked this news but i did it only to read hate comments.

    I think Elephone have done pretty well with the P9000 at the expense of other models. If they can harbour the attention of the P9000 they have given it, then their future phones will be promising. They do need to drop the numbers of different releases though and concentrate of a few. We all know this.
