Elephone have treated us to some new details of their upcoming Elephone P9000 flagship range, confirming Android 6 and a new location for their fingerprint scanner.
If you have been following Elephone news then you will already know that the company are working on a range of 3 flagship phones named the P9000 range. What is different about these next Elephones is that the company have confirmed a narrow bezel design on the entry-level phones, and a zero bezel design on the top of the range version.
Today Elephone have confirmed the hardware parameters for they top of the range edition P9000 as well as sharing more renders and physical details.
Elephone P9000 specifications include:
Mediatek Helio P10 CPU4GB RAMAndroid 6.0 Marshmallow.5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 displayZero bezel design21 mega-pixel main camera8 mega-pixel front camera,Fingerprint sensorUSB Type C
To reiterate these are the specifications for the P9000, Elephone will also launch the P9000c and P9000 Lite with slightly lower specifications.
As for the P9000 design, well Elephone have provided renders that show the bezel free phone and a side mounted fingerprint sensor. The finger print scanner is on the right side of the phone beneath the power button, while a mystery red button is located in the left (possibly a camera shutter button).
It is interesting to see that the Elephone P9000 lacks a volume rocker posing the possibility of side touch control similar to the latest ZTE Nubia phones. The design also shows the location of dual speakers in the base, SIM tray and rather thick overall design.
We are waiting on the final launch date, and also if Android 6 will come on the phone out of the box or if it will be available as an OTA update.
