Chinese smartphone maker Elephone has launched in Russia. This should make it easier for their fans based in Europe to get access to their phones. A total of four devices have been launched and they can be purchased on online store DNS.
First is the Elephone S1 priced at 6990 Rubles (~$116). That is way pricey for a phone with a 5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, and a measly 1800mAh battery. It ships with Android 5.1 but is upgradeable to Android Marshmallow. You can also expand the storage to up to 64GB via a microSD card slot. Though it does have a fingerprint scanner, that still doesn’t justify the high price.
Next is the Elephone S3. This has a larger 5.2-inch FHD display, 3GB of RAM and 16GB ROM. There is a 13MP rear-camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter. You also get a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 2100mAh battery. The Elephone S3 sells for 10,990 Rubles (~$183) and is available in silver, gray and gold.
For 16,999 Rubles ($283), you can pick up the Elephone P9000. Apart from having a larger 5.5-inch 1080p screen, the P9000 has 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. There is a Helio P10 processor under the hood and a 3000mAh battery. The P9000 ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has a 13MP Sony IMX258 sensor on the rear.
Last is the Elephone S7 which is one of the manufacturer’s best looking phones till date. The S7 is nearly the same price (16,990 Rubles) as the P9000 above but is currently unavailable. The screen size and resolution is the same as that of the P9000 but the RAM is 4GB and the built-in storage is 64GB. There is also a microSD card slot that accepts up to 128GB cards and a fingerprint scanner up front. Rear camera is a 13MP shooter and the front camera is a 5MP sensor.
