If you’re looking for a solid Chinese budget smartphone, the Elephone S8 may be a good solution, and the device is still priced under its regular retail price point. Three color variants of the Elephone S8 are now available from GearBest, two of which (Black and Blue), are discounted. You can also get the Limited Edition Red Elephone S8 if you’d like, though you’d have to pay a bit more for it.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Elephone S8 should know that this device is inspired by Xiaomi’s Mi MIX smartphone, which is pretty obvious based on its design. The Elephone S8 sports a ‘chin’ below its display, which houses a front-facing fingerprint scanner. The phone’s bezels on the sides and above the display are fairly thin, and the device comes with an aluminum frame which is placed between two sheets of glass. The Elephone S8 is a direct successor to the Elephone S7, a device that was inspired by the Galaxy S7 Edge. Speaking of which, the Elephone S9 is expected to launch in the coming months, as the company has been increasingly teasing that smartphone. While we’re waiting for the Elephone S9 to land with its OLED display and thin bezels, the Elephone S8 is still a great choice at that price point.
Those of you who are more interested in the phone’s specifications should know that the device comes with a 6-inch QHD (2560 x 1080) display, and that it is fueled by the Helio X25 64-bit deca-core processor, which is no longer the most powerful SoC from MediaTek, but it is the second most powerful processor this company has to offer. The Elephone S8 comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, while you will find a 21-megapixel shooter on the back of this phone. Android 7.1 Nougat comes pre-installed on the device, and the phone also offers two SIM card slots, if that’s a functionality that you need.
