Elephone dual camera phone coming soon! How much would you pay?


huawei mate 9

Elephone has announced it will release a dual camera phone offering similar camera effects to the iPhone 7 and Huawei Mate 9.

We have a feeling that dual camera phones will be all over the place in 2017, in fact we’re already seeing devices with 2 rear cameras hitting the market in large numbers already!

It was Huawei that made dual cameras a thing for the Chinese market with the Huawei Honor 6 Plus, the followed that up with the Huawei P9 and Mate 9 while Xiaomi launched the Redmi Pro and Mi5S Plus dual camera models. It’s not just the larger brands that are offering these features either and we have already reported on an up and coming Bluboo device coming soon.

Gizchina News of the week


With all this dual camera love going on, it’s not surprising that Elephone wants to get in on the action. The company had already announced yesterday that it would release a 6GB RAM, Helio P25 phone at the end of the year, and now it appears that another mystery version is set to make waves too.

Elephone hasn’t gone into any of the specifics of the phone yet other than it will offer similar defocus features to the Mate 9 and iPhone 7 Plus. This could mean that we will see a phone with a main camera and a secondary sensor with a lower resolution (as seen on the Xiaomi Redmi Pro).

Elephone being Elephone aren’t likely to leave this mystery unsolved for long so don’t be surprised to see more details about this dual camera phone soon.

    “Elephone releases a ‘tricamera’ phone” won’t even surprise me, cause their optics are still below par. Elephone may start getting “the camera part” right on their phones in 2018, or maybe 2020.

    Is this phone is the same one having 6GB + 128 GB on board? Or this one is another model rumoured as P9000 Edge long ago??

    God I am too late. The comment section is already corrupted with Elefans 🙁

    Speaking of the phone, I am willing to pay 500USD but when I actually get the phone in my hands.
    Nope?
    You are not actually releasing a phone??

    aah I see, thanks. I will look else where there are actual phone companies.

    Since it’s a combination of Elephone and MediaTek, my best offer would be US $ 69.99.

    One crappy camera driven by crappy software on a crappy device, was not enough apparently. They had a second one…

    This is kinda odd, because they had already been workig on a dual camera model before – p9000 edge, what the hell happened to that project? It seemed like a very anticipated and nice phone and now the project is dead?

    Wasn’t there an article with title “elephone is considering to launch a dual camera smartphone”? I this there was one, anyway, it is quite nice that they made up their minds and decided to go with the dual camera phone, as it is really confusing and difficult to follow tens of new elephone phones that are in development…
