Chinese smartphone OEM Elephone is an up-and-coming brand in the smartphone market, yet has not relented in its efforts of infiltrating the market with new devices. As the firm gears up for the launch of two new models, which are the Elephone S7 and Elephone R9 that are scheduled to go up for pre-sale later this month.
Recently, news purported online that Elephone is currently working on a new smartphone that has a curvy screen and ceramic back cover. Though this news sounds exciting, Elephone has not revealed when this unnamed smartphone will be officially making its way to the market. Renders of the device have appeared online and from the looks of it, the device looks quite appealing.
As only the ceramic back cover and curvy screen were revealed in the renders, other details seem to be shrouded in mystery. Well, the ceramic material is advantageous compared to the usual materials used as it ensures durability, negates the ugly antenna positioning in metallic covers, and offers great corrosion resistance. A good example is the Xiaomi MI5 which comes with a ceramic body.
Furthermore, its smoothness gives a good hand-feel and the reflected images on the edge of the curved display disappear smoothly without anamorphosis.
As more information regarding this smartphone remains in the dark, there is no need to hype this unnamed smartphone yet. But any advancements on the specs, features, price, and release date of this device will be communicated as soon as possible. Stay tuned!
