We’ve talked about Elephone quite a few times thus far. This company is becoming more and more interesting as time goes by. They’ve released a number of really compelling devices this year, some of which we’ve already reviewed, like the P7000 and P8000 handsets. The company will soon release the Elephone Vowney and P9000 devices, and we’ve also seen them tease their upcoming Android Wear-powered smartwatch lately, the ELE Watch. That’s not all though, some Elephone M2 details leaked recently, including the device’s specs and images, and now we have some Elephone M1 details to share with you, read on.
The Elephone M1 will be a mid-range handset, but unlike its M2 sibling, t won’t sport a physical home button below the display, you’ll be able to find capacitive buttons there instead. The Elephone M1 will feature a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The device will be fueled by MediaTek’s MT6735 quad-core SoC clocked at 1.3GHz, and a fingerprint scanner will be placed on the back of this smartphone. The 13-megapixel rear-facing camera will also be a part of this package, and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter will be available as well. The phone will be made out of aluminum, and even though we don’t have any connectivity information at the moment, it is almost certain this device will sport 4G LTE connectivity as well.
The company has also shared a number of images with us, and you can also check out the device in an official hands-on video embedded down below. The device sports some black bars around the display, so it’s not exactly bezel-less as it seems to be when the display is off, but the bars aren’t all that thick, so it shouldn’t be an issue. This handset will ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop pre-installed, and will be available for purchase starting at the end of this month, according to the company. We still don’t have the exact availability date to share with you, but we’ll report back if any additional info surfaces, so stay tuned for that.
