The Elephone S7 is a smartphone you’ve probably heard of by now. This is Elephone’s new flagship handset which resembles the Galaxy S7 Edge quite a bit, and costs way less. The Elephone S7 is currently available for purchase through Chinese resellers, and even though the phone does look almost identical to the Galaxy S7 Edge, it seems like quite a few people are interested in purchasing it, mainly due to its design. Speaking of which, it seems like Elephone is planning to release yet another really sleek-looking smartphone in the future, read on.
If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see the alleged Elephone S8, the company’s allegedly upcoming smartphone. Now, the Elephone S7 resembles the Galaxy S7 Edge quite a bit, while the Elephone S8 takes quite a few hints from the Xiaomi Mi MIX, as this is a bezel-less device, well, sort of, it sports some bezel below the display, it has the so-called ‘chin’ with the company’s logo. Needless to say, the phone looks really nice because of this, and its sides are curved, which means that the display is curved as well, and the same goes for the back of the device as well, which suggests it will fit in your hand quite nicely. If you take a look at the back of the device, you’ll notice that there are two camera sensors placed at the very top of its back, and below them, the company plans to include an LED flash. Both camera sensors and the LED flash are blurred out in this render for some reason, so we don’t really get to see them properly, but we’ll probably see more Elephone S8 renders in the coming weeks.
According to the source, the Elephone S8 will feature one of MediaTek’s deca-core processors, and will ship with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage, more than one variant will be available, similar to the Elephone S7. We don’t know if the company plans to include a fingerprint scanner here, but we can’t see it on the device. In any case, it’s unrealistic to expect this device to land that soon, the company had released their Elephone S7 handset quite recently after all, so we may have to wait a bit before the Elephone S8 lands. This phone will be quite affordable, though, just like the Elephone S7, so if you like the design of the Xiaomi Mi MIX, but are not willing to pay that much for it, the Elephone S8 might be a solution for you.
