January 18, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Elephone has held a press conference in China on Friday, and have announced a number of new devices, as well as some new projects it seems. We’ve already reported that the company introduced the P9000 Edge, P9000 Lite and P9000 devices on Friday, as well as the Elephone W2 smartwatch. Now, the P9000 Edge is the company’s bezel-less devices powered by the Helio P10 SoC, and is arguably the most interesting launch of the day. That being said, we managed to get our hands on some new information, it seems like Elephone had more to say at the press conference than we originally thought, read on.

According to the info provided by our source at the company, Elephone is preparing the Helio X20-powered variant of the Elephone P9000 Edge. Now, this handset already offers really great bezel-less design, and a nice set of specs, including 4GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch fullHD display. Its SoC, however, is only mid-range, the Helio P10 is a solid 64-bit octa-core processor, but it seems like Elephone wants to introduce a true flagship later this year. We will definitely going to make sure to let you know if we stumble upon any additional info regarding this handset, so stay tuned for that.

Speaking of bezel-less devices, it seems like Elephone is getting ready to release yet another handset with no bezel on the sides, the Elephone S3. This handset has also been mentioned at the conference, and according to the provided info, it will sport a 5.2-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, and it will sport a metal unibody design. The device is also expected to ship with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. That is all we know about this handset at the moment, but the company did share its image though. If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see the Elephone S3’s render, which should give you a good idea of what will this phone look like in the end. So, it seems like we’re going to get at least two more Elephone-branded handsets this year which sport no bezel on the sides, which is great to hear.
