Elephone R9 coming with some seriously thin body

Another piece of information about the upcoming Elephone R9 just landed in our mailbox so we can add it to the puzzle. But first of all let’s go through what we already know about the phone.

So voilá, Elephone R9 will have a full metal body made by CNC processing and the fingeprint scanner is going to be located in the front while using some new modern materials and a protective glass. Display will be a 5,5-inch one with FullHD resolution and of course the trademark bezel-less design. It will be powered by the deca-core Helio X20 processor supported by 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage, main rear camera will be a 16 Mpix shooter while the front one will be only 8 Mpix and everything governed by the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. We should be getting also a special “Sapphire Classic” blue version, which looks just marvellous.



Elephone are pretty proud about the resulting design and thin profile of the R9 model, allegedly their engineers have been working on such aestetic solution for more than a year. And of course to fullfill the quote we have an obligatory iPhone 6 Plus comparison in this matter, Elephone R9 is going to be 7,55 mm thin so beating the iPhone by 0.05 mm. Minimal difference, but looks good in the marketing papers right?
