Elephone S7 is going to feature both physical and capacitative buttons


Seems like Elephone have decided to go against the flow for once and in the time when most of the manufacturers are steering away from the physical button usage due to cutting costs and materials, the new Elephone S7 is going to feature both physical and capacitative buttons. Personally i don’t like the “only capacitative” approach so in my opinion that’s surely a good thing.

The physical button has been integrated in the previous Elephone P9000 with very positive customer feedback so it’s quite logical they are trying to follow up on that. The physical button in S7 will not just have the E-touch 2.0, but some extra other functions, but Elephone are still halfway in developing and testing those so they didn’t fully disclose any details about those.

Elephone S7 is going to be a higher midranger with deca-core Helio X20 processor, 5,5-inch bezel-less screen with FullHD resolution, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB of storage and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The back cover is PVC made and covered with 15 layers of composite materials.

More information about Elephone S7 to follow soon so stay tuned.

    I believe that this brand is seriously thinking to retrace what Huawei has undertaken a few years ago …..
    He is pulling out products which are potentially awesome.

    I think that Elephone understood that satisfaction of constumer is very important….

    Is it still is development?? And I heard that they were planning to launch it on September this year. Though only 1 week left in this month.

    Expectations from this device is too high. I’m going to buy this. But don’t know when it will be available. For now only a new device manded C1 is available on their official site. 🙁

    Earlier somewhere in gearbest I saw the battery is 2600mAh and in your past article I found it as 3000mAh. I’m confused about that. Will is support fast charging?? Or wireless charging like P9000??

    What are the extra facilities with E-touch 2?? Will it run on pure android 6? Or there will be any custom UI??

  15. Massimo G
    September 22, 2016

    I will wait for this E-Touch 2… latest E-Touch of P9000 was very interesting and useful!

    Apparently after the release of the C1, it will finally be his time?
    This model looks really well done and I also read on the web that will be released with ROM / RAM different sizes, in order to leave the customer to decide what to take and how much to spend!

    That’s great, love that they leave the choice to use physical and on screen buttons 🙂

    If it’s going to be just like on P9000 (one touch (or click in this case) – back, double touch – home and touch and hold – recent applications) it’s going to be really good and that’s really welcoming!

    I don’t understand why there are always the same users who continue to post against others accusing them of being fake profiles, just because they speak good about Elephone.
    I believe that if here there are users paid from someone, those are you, doing everything to discredit users that are speaking well about it, because they will probably annoy your brand.
    Otherwise I can’t find other explanations for these continuous attacks for free.
    P.S. before you accuse me, I apologize for my English, is very poor and isn’t perfect, but that doesn’t mean that those who don’t properly write, is a fake user!
    Speaking of the S7 model, I can’t wait to come out to see it in action and assess whether to buy it or not.

    honestly they made a good choice with this, it doesn’t restrict users and allow them to choose the way they want to control their phones, which adds an extra layers of customization 🙂

    perfect 🙂 hopefully they use the glass on both versions of the phone! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5130f2646ed049007f4d7c59ea6db18c6f62f24a18bdb5c57669bde4fe5cac5f.jpg

    I think the phone looks well and there’s no need for a on-screen navigation, so i think they made a great choice allowing to use both 🙂 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/24bb01681294e42a09fe853a8b28c1cb3a58edb05e3ce70a9d75eddc77e73b97.jpg

    Lol buying from elephone guarantees you shitty support, they release new phones every week, honestly no real r&d goes into it, spend a little more on a quality phone like xiaomi, meizu, one plus etc. Elephone is shit
