So what can we expect from the new phone in general? Seems like the C1 will be a nice looking phone with design attacking even the way pricier devices, but is not going to compete with the performance, because after all it’s a budget phone with a low price.

004

Elephone C1 will offer a full metal body, MT6737 processor, 5,5-inch HD display and Android 6.0 Marshmallow as the OS. The main camera should support fast focus and will have a dual LED flash. The phone is also equipped with a fingeprint scanner on the back. In terms of memory the C1 carries 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of storage, which is expandable up to 64 GB.

005

Presale price for the Elephone C1 is set at $109.99 and there will be two color variants available – gold and dark blue. You can find more information here or eventually here.

    Finally some real pictures of this device!
    The gold one also looking good. But It seems little thicker than I expected. Although It is giving more than its price.

    I don’t understand why they have replaced the USB port into type 2!
    Does it support Quick charging? Like pump-express?

    Is possible that they can still make smartphones without the rapid charge active? I don’t seem to have read it….

    • Massimo G
      September 29, 2016

      I don’t like Fast Charge.. is better to have 1,5A charge instead of a 9V 2A charge that destroy batteries! so Good to have slow charge IMHO

      • Troller :V
        September 29, 2016

        no they don’t destroy batteries

    Aha everything is fine in this device but one thing disappointed me, that is the micro USB port at the time of USB 3.
    Else who will provide Marshmallow out of the box and 13mp rear with dual LED flash at just around $100?

    • Massimo G
      September 29, 2016

      Micro USB is good indeed.. low budget phone doesn’t need Type-C .. and with Micro USB you can re-use plenty of cables at home!

      Prompt, on this chipset Uhans A101 is made. but it costs $57. You are familiar with this company? It should be purchased?

      • afghanPower

        Do not buy this phone. Price/Specs ratio is way too low. You could get a Xiaomi Redmi 3s or Vernee Thor for this price, and they have “flagship” like specs.
