There are many smartphone manufacturers who are based out of China, Elephone is definitely one such manufacturer which is interesting. For long, Elephone has been manufacturing low and mid-ranged devices and this time they have topped the game off with the Elephone M2.
The latest offering by Elephone features a 5.5 inch Full HD screen manufactured by LG. The display is quite sharp at 400 ppi and 1920X1080 resolution.
As the name suggest, the phone has a unibody design and is completely made of metal. The device is powered by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor, a much tested and loved processor used these days in many Chinese phones. It also has a ARM Mali720-MP3 GPU, clocked at 450MHz. It will have 3GB on board RAM and 32GB internal storage that is expandable to 128GB via external microSD card.
In the camera department this device features a 13MP f/2.0 aperture SONY IMX214 rear shooter and a 5MP front shooter. The home button on this device doubles up as a fingerprint sensor which the company claims has a 0.5 s response time.
Talking of connectivity, the device supports 4G LTE and is dual SIM capable. It features a 2650 mAh battery.
The phone comes with a custom UI, Ele UI that is based on Android Lollipop 5.1 that is pretty responsive and organized.
