Elephone R9 shapes up to be an interesting combination of aesthetics and technology

Yesterday we had a chance to take a peek at the photo of the upcoming Elephone R9 phone in the beautiful “sapphire classic” blue variant, But judging by today’s additional renders there are going to be more color versions of the R9 for sure.


Gizchina News of the week

And we can throw also some new information into the mix regarding the phone, it will be a full metal body made by CNC processes, fingerprint scanner will be located up front and should be using some cutting edge new materials and a special protective glass. Elephone R9 will also utilize a display from JDI production so the quality should be there.


We are expecting more and more spec information about the Elephone R9 coming the next days so stay tuned and for now just admire the published renders.

    Elephone R9 shapes up to be an interesting OPPO clone.

    Even the slower folks,like Apple , are getting rid of home buttons… It’s 5 years too late to be this stupid.

      And what exactly is wrong (“STUPID”) with home buttons? The fact that you dont like them doesnt mean everyone else shouldnt. Look elsewhere if you dont like the home button.

    I think that is too much like an iphone …. could invent something more innovative instead of copying the apple !!

    I think that the resemblance to an iPhone makes it beautiful and elegant. NICE IDEA!!

    I can see these are the rendered images. So I’m curious about if it is a prototype model or the final model of R9. Cause the design is very much similar to Oppo R9 and kind of rumored iPhone 7!!

      just seems like an oppo r9 clone..since oppo is currently kinda doing really well it is kinda obv. that they copy that..just like they do with the elephone s7

    I saw a elephone by a colleague and I’m loving it, now I try my perfect elephone for me. This model seems perfect, we hope in the price.

      Another fake one. haha

    August 27, 2016

    This simple and slick design is so impressive! I’m interested in this device as my current device is hanging so much!! I want to buy a mid ranger android device. I think if it’s price is reasonable then maybe I can buy one.

    What about the camera?? Is very important for me, but I don’t want interpolation.

    Yet another model?? How many models with how many variants will be released by elephone in just September??? ??

    This info is not enough, expecting more information and specifications soon.

  13. Giovanni

    Is important to release many models, because don’t we have the same tastes!
    I’d like so much this model.

    • Hakim Farouk
      August 28, 2016

      haha. important to release more model? what rubbish mentality. have you heard of universal design? that’s why iphone could have 1 design an appeal to many. Even big companies don’t do that and even if they do, they have the resources and capability to execute. Unlike elephone, on the elephone forum itself, the developers are only working on the software of the new models and neglect the older ones cause simply they don’t have enough manpower (or even capable developers to begin with) to maintain Its software side. “Typical China” business mentality, quantity over quality. That’s why China phone manufacturers come and go. They failed to understand this.

    Btw, Giovanni and Girolamo are 2 more new fake commenters guys. I just checked. haha these people just never learn..

    August 30, 2016

    I think that here there is only one fake commenter….and that are you.
    Whenever someone leaves a comment in favor of elephone, you appear and begin to say that users are fake.
    Who do you work for, Ulefone or Meizu ??

    • Girolamo
      August 30, 2016

      I don’t add anything anymore, you’ve written everything, perfectly!!

    Let it be Giovanni….he wrote the same thing at all the users that write positive comment about elephone…
    The people arn’t stupids, and understand why he write this…
    We think to elephone that in this period is developing beautiful smartphone
