Another day, another Chinese brand launching a new smartphone in the fast-growing Indian market. This time, it’s the much popular brand in China, the Elephone, who has launched its Elephone P9000 silently in India without any media event or bells & whistles.
The Elephone P9000 is listed on Amazon India for Rs. 11,999 and offers decent specs for the asking price.
The P9000’s highlight is the almost bezel-less screen, and they are of 1.6 mm thickness, which is way slimmer than the current generation smartphones.
Elephone 9000 launches in India for 11999
The phone has a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 1920*1080 Pixels and 401 PPi, which is also on par with rival smartphones such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Huawei Honor 6X, Coolpad Cool 1 Dual, and Moto G5 Plus. Elephone did not mention any protective layer on display though.
However, the phone comes with the MediaTek MT6755M processor, more commonly called as the Helio P10 clocked at 1.8 GHz, which is an Octa-core CPU. It is not as fast as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 used on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 or the Moto G5 Plus but is a decent processor with Antutu score close to 50,000.
Additionally, The Elephone 9000 offers 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded by up to 64 GB via micro-SD card. Presence of 4 GB RAM and decent storage makes the device attractive in its price range.
Optics-wise, the Elephone P9000 has a 13 MP Sony IMX358 sensor at the rear along with an 8 MP front-facing camera that doesn’t come with support for LED flash.
OS, Battery, and Connectivity
Another highlight of the phone is the Android 7.0 Nougat, which is almost similar to stock Android with no customizations on top and Elephone is also promising regular software update.
Connectivity options include, the smartphone comes with USB Type-C port, Dual-SIM, 4G LTE and VOLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It is also backed by a 3000 mAh battery that is expected to fuel the phone for one complete day.
Also, it has a fingerprint sensor located on the rear side of the phone within reach of your index finger.
The new entrant goes against the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Coolpad Cool 1 Dual, and Motorola Moto G5 Plus. All the three phones are powered by Snapdragon chipset, which is a slight advantage for them.
