Elephone enters India with S2 Plus, G9 and P5000
After months of speculation Elephone India has officially launched three devices in India named Elephone S2 Plus, Elephone G9 and Elephone P5000. All of the devices are available for purchase currently via their official website starting at INR 5,199. All the phones run Android Lollipop 5.1 out of the box, sans the P5000 which still runs on Android Kitkat 4.4.4.
The lowest priced device in the lot is Elephone G9 which is priced at just INR 5,199. It packs in quiet a punch for the price with 4.5-inch 854 x 480 Pixels resolution Display, 1.0 GHz Quad Core MTK6735M SoC with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal memory. It also features Dual SIM support with Cat 4 LTE support, WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and 1750 mAh battery. The optics department boast of 8-megapixels rear and 2-megapixels front camera.
Next up is Elephone S2 Plus, which looks like Oppo Mirror 5 and iPhone 6 Plus hybrid. The 5.5-incher device packs a HD display with 2.5D glass curved in edges just like newer iPhones. It also features a glass back with diamond textured back panel. There is also a metal frame to give flagship feel to the device. However it costs INR 10,999 which is just about another entry level midrange device.
Under the hood is a decent 1.0 GHz Quad Core MTK6735 SoC with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The 13-megapixels rear camera from OmniVision coupled with LED Flash gives photographers delight, however the selfie 2-megapixels camera is 2014-ish for a device priced above INR 10,000. It is also super slim at 6.9 mm and packs a decent 2650-mAh battery. Connectivity options are similar to the G9.
The costliest device at INR 11,999 is Elephone P5000 with 5350mAh battery with Fast Charging support. It also packs in 5.0-inch FullHD display, MTK6592 Octa Core SoC, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. 16-megapixels Sony CMOS camera in rear and 8-megapixels front camera keeps shutterbug smiling, and fingerprint sensor, NFC makes it an all in one device. Connectivity options are similar to above two models sans 4G support.
All the devices are up for grab at their official website. In terms of service 7 days instant repair for devices is promised.
