Elephone has been teasing the arrival of the Elephone S9 for a while now, and our source at the company has just shared some additional info when it comes to the phone. Now, it seems like the company is planning to release two variants of the phone, the Elephone S9, and Elephone S9 Pro, which is something we did not know thus far. Now, our source did not mention that the Elephone S9 Pro will support NFC, though nothing was said regarding the Elephone S9, so it is possible that only the Elephone S9 Pro will ship with such functionality.
Having said that, both the Elephone S9 and S9 Pro will ship with a dual camera setup on the back, and we also received some camera info this time around. The two phones will include two 13-megapixel snappers on the back, one camera will pack in a regular RGB lens, while the other one will ship with a monochrome lens. Elephone has also partnered up with Arcsoft, a company which will provide image algorithms to Elephone, so that it boosts Elephone S9’s images, mainly its bokeh effect. This company has been cooperating with a number of other smartphone manufacturers thus far, including Xiaomi, Huawei, and Samsung, according to Elephone, and Meizu has also joined that list a while back. Now, on top of all that, our source has shared yet another image of the Elephone S9, and this seems to be its pro variant.
As you can see, the Elephone S9 Pro sports a curved display, it seems, and its bezels are extremely thin. The design of the phone reminds us of the Galaxy Note 8 and Samsung’s Galaxy S8 devices, at least from the front. The phone’s bezels are really thin, and it’s easily noticeable that the Type-C USB port and speaker grills will be placed at the very bottom of the phone. The device will be made out of metal and glass, and interestingly enough, it does not have any blacks bars on the sides, at least according to the provided image. We still do not know when will the Elephone S9 and S9 Pro land, but the company will probably reveal that soon enough, stay tuned.
