Elephone Naming Scheme Explained: What’s the “X” for?


As we all know, Elephone are one of the most active companies from China. They are always experimenting and releasing new devices, so some of you might have lost track of them. Here we’re going to learn their naming scheme, more in particular what the letter defining the model means.

Let’s begin with the most interesting one: the “X” series. All models that begin with the letter “X” will be flagships, with a good-looking design and high-end hardware. So pretty much the best Elephone can offer, hopefully we’re going to see some intriguing devices in this segment.

Next we have the “P” series; it’s still high-end but obviously not as good as the precedent. It also brings good looking phones at an affordable price.

The “S” series is probably the second most interesting one in our opinion. It indeed brought phones like the edge-less Elephone S7 and there’s a stunning looking S8 in the works. So we’re really excited to see what can come out of this series. As we’ve seen in the past, these phones will sports mid-range hardware for the most part.

Finally, we have the “C” and “A” series, they are the most cost-effective and affordable ones. With a simple design and low-end hardware, as you would expect.

    yes….every week new device, and as we do, they also forgetting about “old” one… month old devices are too old for any support from Elephone.

    Xpensive Series:
    Enough said. Investors are advised that advertised performance is not indicative of real performance.

    Prop Series:
    It looks okay but it ain’t working. Mostly used as prop in advertisement or product placement in youtube movies.

    Shit Series:
    When it looks to good to be true you know it stinks. Please wash your hands after use.
    Don’t expect any updates or future support.
    (euh…that counts for every Series to be honest…)

    Awful Series:
    An Ashtray Annoying worthy device. Don’t clean your Ass with it.
