Elephone has released quite a few smartphones in the last year or so. We've reviewed quite a few of them, like the P7000 and P8000 handsets. This China-based company is still not done releasing devices though, they've teased the M2 and M1 devices recently, and their Android Wear-powered smartwatch which is due to launch before the end of the year as well. That's not all, however, the P9000 and Vowney high-end smartphones will land in the coming weeks, and we're here to talk more about the latter handset, read on.
The Elephone Vowney has been teased by the company a couple of times by now, a hands-on video surfaced back in July, and the device has been available for pre-order since the beginning of last month. The company has listed the device on their official website, and even though not all the details are available at the moment, we did manage to get some images of the device, and the software which will run on it, which you can check out in the gallery down below. This smartphone is expected to be available for purchase next month, and it will arrive in both the 3GB and 4GB RAM variants. Speaking of RAM, let's check out Elephone Vowney's specs, shall we.
Elephone Vowney (higher-end variant) features a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440, 535ppi) display with a color saturation of 95% NTSC, while the lower-end model will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p panel. MediaTek's Helio X10 (MT6795) 64-bit octa-core processor running at 2.2GHz will fuel this smartphone along with a GX6650 GPU for graphics. The 21-megapixel shooter (Sony's IMX230 sensor) will be located on the back of this smartphone, and an 8-megapixel snapper will be available up front. The dual-LED, dual tone flash sensor will also be located on the back of this phone, next to the camera sensor. The Elephone Vowney will pack in a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and it will be made out of metal. The 4,000mAh battery will also be a part of this package, and it should be able to get you through the day without problems.
