Elephone S8 triple bezel-less device will feature Helio X27 SoC

by Dimitris Economou 8

Xiaomi Mix amazed everyone with its ceramic body and bezel-less display but how many have it on their hands? The production is limited and the device too expensive. Indeed, the design is stunning and difficult to manufacture as well. Until now only 2 companies, Sharp and Xiaomi dared to produce a widely available product. Thankfully, a third player will enter this segment too. It is Elephone with the Elephone S8.

The difference in the Elephone S8 is that, apart from the triple bezel-less sides, the edges are going to be curved as well. This will create a visual effect of a really non-existent bezel. In both the Sharp Aquos and Xiaomi Mix you can see a tiny bezel is visible. With 2.5D curved glass on top, it will be hidden. Of course, that makes it even more prone to drops as the glass will break for sure.

In addition, Elephone S8 will feature 128GB of internal storage. Elephone says that S8 will also inherit the advantages of S7, to perform as good as it looks. Moreover, the design of the camera and the fingerprint sensor on this model will be the breaking innovation worldwide according to the company.

Elephone has decided to go with the Helio X27 SoC, the best high-end processor of MTK so far. Compared with the Helio X25 version, the X27 reaches up to 2.6 GHz and the GPU up to 875MHz. Add to that the fact that the software and algorithm for cooperative scheduling of CPU/GPU is significantly improved. The overall performance of the processor has been enhanced by 20% at least.

Both the Aquos and Mix are on the premium category of pricing. In which price range will the S8 be? Let us know your prediction in the comments.

  • Too bad Elephone’s software, built quality and especially camera will remain below par, and this model might never see the light of day, like so many.

    Both xiaomi and sharp is act first talk later.
    Elephone? Yeah…

    My prediction is it won’t see the light of day. Nice pixelization around the camera area, did you draw this in paint D?

    Seriously, if Xiaomi are struggling to manufacture in large quantities, what makes Elephone think they can? April fools day seems to have started early!

    please only once use cyanogen, and use scratch-proof materials…

    If Elephone can actually reach a realization on this triple-bezel-less unit, then a big kudos to them. However like usual, their good design is wasted on their incompetent UI optimization, their inability to tweak the cameras properly, their hopeless obsession to use MTK’s midrange SoC and overall, their lousy customer support.

    They should rethink their marketing plans if they want to stay relevant in 2017. Sooner or later, they will suffer the consequences of their spamming.


    why elephone and umi published the same news at the same time?

  • Nice joke! Elephone sucks… They was not able to make the S7 to 100% working (bad software, bad display, bad cameras and much more) and now Elephone is coming with the S8 around the corner… This phone will be the same bad thing!
