Elephone has established itself as a global smartphone maker with its numerous value for money offerings. We have already seen a lot of great devices from this Chinese maker such as the P7000 and now, it looks like the company is taking things to a whole new level.


Elephone has updated on its official website some details and specifications of the upcoming Elephone P9000 handset. It will be one of the most powerful offerings from the company till date. One of the biggest highlights of the device is the new 10-core Helio X20 MT6797 chipset inside, which will probably make it one of the first handsets to feature the chip.


Mediatek had earlier revealed that the chip will go into mass production by Q3 2015. And Elephone P9000 will go on sale around October this year, which seems to be the right time for the chip to hit the market.

As for the other specs, the Elephone P9000 is said to come with a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display with 4GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. At the back, it will feature a powerful 20.7MP camera while up front, there’s a 5MP shooter.

The phone comes with a 3100mAh battery and support duals SIM dual standby. Given the flagship status, the P9000 will come with FDD-LTE 4G networks. As for software, the phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop version.

The listing also revealed the pricing of the handset, which is not very cheap according to Elephone standards. The phone is expected to retail for $500, which makes it the costliest handset from the company.
