Elephone S2 and Elephone S2 Plus launched running on Android 5.1 Lollipop
Elephone is one of the very few Chinese phone makers with huge presence outside their native China. Even though this company is no Xiaomi or Huawei, Elephone has introduced some pretty affordable smartphones in the recent past that you can view here.
The latest devices from the company are the Elephone S2 and Elephone S2 Plus, unveiled and launched this week. For pricing, the company used their trademark cheap pricing pattern on both handsets as the 5-inch S2 is priced $160 while the 5.5-inch phablet-sized S2 Plus is pegged 10 bucks north at $170 — albeit, we are quoting their Gearbest prices as these could be costlier elsewhere.
We got our hands on a couple of Gearbest coupons for the devices:
Coupon code: ElephoneS2 Price: $129.99
Coupon code: ES2PLUS Price: $146.89
Moving on, the screen resolution on both phones is 720 x 1280 pixels. There’s an 8MP main camera (on the two devices), 2MP front-facer, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 64GB microSD card and finally a 64-bit MediaTek MT6735 SoC with 1.3GHz-clocked quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. Both smartphones rely on a fine-tuned firmware of Google’s Android 5.1 Lollipop OS.
Elephone is reportedly prepping another high end device (not pictured) which could break cover before the end of this quarter. The unreleased smartphone, dubbed Elephone P8000, will break cover with “global LTE support” while having an estimated price of $210, an insider said.
