Elephone seems determined to increase their market share next to companies like Meizu and Xiaomi. This Hong Kong-based company has announced 3 new handsets just a few days ago and it seems they're making way for yet another one, at least according to GizChina's sources. Elephone P4000 will allegedly be company's new device which should launch soon and according to rumors should be a direct competitor to the likes of Xiaomi Mi4 and Meizu MX4. According to the source, Elephone is currently working on a supply chain for this device, which could mean the device is ready to go and is only waiting for the company to tie up loose ends as far as supply goes. The source claims this device was inspired by Xiaomi Mi4 as far as the design goes and the image above is the only one we could get our hands on. We can't exactly tell much from this image considering we can only see the back of the device but it does seem to resemble the Mi4 handset.
Elephone P3000 is this device's predecessor and that phone is nothing to scoff at. The device is powered by MediaTek's MT6592 octa-core chip clocked at 1.7GHz, this is what you'd call a "true octa-core" chip. It sports a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display and comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It has a 13-megapixel rear-facing and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooters while a 3150mAh battery is also part of the package. Considering the battery size this device lasts a long time on a charge. It comes with NFC built-in and it also has a fingerprint scanner. If we take all this into consideration, Elephone P4000 will be a beast of a device considering it's supposed be a more powerful device than it's predecessor of course. We still have no idea what price will it carry or when will it launch, but I guess that will happen soon. Elephone P3000 is now priced under $200 so this device can't be that expensive once it launches, besides, Elephone is a company which usually makes rather affordable devices.
