Elephone S8 will have Helio X27, but when will it launch?


elephone s8

Elephone is once again promising the world with it’s latest phone and trying to drum excitement by revealing very little.

Elephone’s Marketing department are a one trick phone. Each and every year they ‘announce’ a new cutting edge phone with killer hardware and pricing and saturate the web with ‘news’ of their phone.

You don’t need to cast your mind back too far to remember the Elephone Vowney, a phone that took over 12 months to hit the market, or even the Elephone P9000, and more recently the S7. Sure the S7, and P9000 didn’t take 12 months to arrive, but they sure did take their sweet time!

So are Elephone set to repeat history again with the Elephone S8?

The phone maker has already revealed a render of the phone (that looks suspiciously like a Huawei with Elephone branding) and promised a phone with unique rear camera design, and today they’ve drip fed us a few more details.

According to the latest Elephone press release, the Elephone S8 will feature a triple bezel-less design, in fact they believe that they will be the 3rd manufacturer to launch a phone with this design behind Sharp and Xiaomi. Another interesting detail is a triple curved panel, something that we’ve not seen on a phone so far!

Another point they make is the phone’s processor, a Helio X27 decacore chipset running at 2.6ghz which apparently offer 20% better performance than the current Helio X25 chipset.

Along with that processor, Elephone is promising a storage capacity of 128GB and an innovative fingerprint and rear camera design.

The main question though is how long can we expect to wait before the Elephone S8 will go on sale?

      release date is encoded in the phone’s name : S8 = Summer 2018

        If that’s the case then s8= summer 8000 so only 6000 years to go, about average for an Elephone release ?

      I’m not sure how familiar you are with Chinese phones, but many work on t T-Mobile and att in the US. I’ve bought all my phone’s from China for a while now. Work just fine on cricket (att) in the USA

    they blur the camera because they don’t know how to drawing it………so they even yet don’t know how to producing it in the next year(s)

    For the retards who will actually look forward to the launch, worry not – GizEle will flood its article stream from at least 2-3 weeks ahead of launch, covering every nook and cranny and even irrelevant detais, with a promo coded link to Elephone hk somewhere.

    in their latest live streams on Facebook they said the manufacturing would start at the start of 2017, january / february… i hope they post pond the release to fix up the flaws and bugs they might encounter during the development of s8

    why does it have to have that ugly logo at the bottom of front screen? i could think of a ton of better things to put there, a hardware home button for instance would be way better than that logo….

    They say this model is not only gonna have triple border screen, but also it’s gonna be triple curved, which I don’t really believe… I guess we’ll see what S8 is really worth

    Ehhh, I really doubt they will deliver on all the promises, I really don’t think the phone will be a hit and will probably cost a lot as well..
