Elephone Max changes name: Say hello to the C1 Max!

Elephone C1 Max

Today Elephone announced this somewhat weird change of name of  what is now called Elephone C1 Max. We’re talking about the big 6.0-inch screen phablet about to launch soon, which was earlier supposed to be called the Elephone Max.

The Elephone C1 Max comes with a smooth looking black finish, ultra-thin body and a dual cameras setup. The phone surely appears to be premium in the photo released to the public but it’s too early to say, we will have to wait for more to give a (still vague) real opinion.

Other than being black, Elephone is really pushing the fact the phone will run with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, which sure is good to hear for most users that want to keep up with the latest Google OS.

As mentioned at the beginning, the main news here is that the phone has been renamed from Elephone Max to Elephone C1 Max. It would have been cool to know why but there isn’t much to say about that, as long as the phone is good nobody cares how it’s named.

We still aren’t aware of the definitive specs of the Elephone C1 Max, but if you’re really interested in this device you can check out their official website or follow them on Facebook.

    So this is the rumored 6 inch smartphone by Elephone with dual camera? But it was supposed to launch in 2017 right?

    the name doesn’t really matter, as long as it has nice specs and optimised software, by the way – black color looks amazing on this phone! 🙂

    Does anyone know other specs of this phone? Perhaps there was an article about how much storage or rams it is going to have?

    Ultra thin? It means can it be in between 7-7.5″??
    Interesting. And it will come with android 7 Nougat out of the box? So they are really working hard about Nougat!

    I think 6inch display is quite bigger this day. It should be rather called phablet. But it’s also good for big screen entertainment or can be the movie partner. 😛
    But I think the main attraction is the dual camera setup. Not only this is the dual camera on their 1st model and also the 1st model with 6inch display.
