The Elephone S8 features an USB Type-C Gen 2.0 port


Elephone S8

Thankfully in the past years most Chinese phone manufacturer have began equipping their devices with USB Type-C ports. One of the latest smartphones to come with one of these if the Elephone S8, a sleek looking phone packed with some rather interesting internal hardware; let’s learn more about it!

Elephone S8

As we mentioned above, the Elephone S8 comes with the now-standard (on mid-range to high-end devices) USB Type-C port. This kind of connection is more advanced than the older microUSB as it’s reversible and it can potentially achieve better results, both for data transferring speeds and power delivery.

The USB Type-C port equipped on the Elephone S8 is also of the 2.0 kind. That means it will allow you to transfer files and whatnot at higher speeds, which could be a really important factor if you happen to move big files such as movies, music playlists and so on.

Other than the USB Type-C 2.0 port, the Elephone S8 also sports some quite decent hardware, down below you can check out the full specifications.

    Who can tell me the camera and battery? If it optimized, I will consider to buy this one. But….if not, maybe I will choose Ulefone Mix, but the CPU of that phone is P25. I want to use X series CPU.

      Who really gives a sh*t??? I don’t, I’d rather have usb3 or usb3.1 and ONLY THEN type C. I mean, come on, how much more does a 3.1 port cost over a 2.0 port? It’s probably just a few dollars. I’m sick of these companies saying there’s a n empty price band at say $220 so we’ll seek a 40% mark-up and assemble $159 worth of parts.

      Oh, and “Marisa” obviously works for Elephone, her Chinese name is probably something like 女襪子木偶
