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.
