ELEPHONE U and U Pro – a brief overview of the new Chinese flagships. Features and price


On February 8, ELEPHONE will introduce its new smartphones. Usually I’m not interested in the devices of this company, but the ELEPHONE U and U Pro models really interested me. From this article you will learn all the most important thing about these smartphones. You will learn what components they are equipped with, their price, and also a few words about the appearance. So, let’s begin.

To begin with, the first is striking, with their appearance. I want to note immediately that outwardly, both models are absolutely identical and there is nothing to be different, differences are only inside, but more about this later. The front part of the ELEPHONE U is almost the same as in the Galaxy S8, this is because it is equipped with a 6-inch curved display that fills almost the entire front part. Above the screen is a camera, a speaker and several sensors, a fingerprint scanner is behind.

On the top of the back panel are two lenses, which have a vertical arrangement. Immediately beneath them is a fingerprint scanner, it is not detached from the cameras, as in most smartphones, but merges with them into one. Designing a smartphone is a matter of taste, but I’m sure ELEPHONE U and ELEPHONE U Pro will like many, they are really attractive. And now let’s talk about their stuffing.


ELEPHONE U Pro – specifications, price and more.

Both smartphones are equipped with AMOLED screens with a diagonal of 5.99-inches and resolution FHD + (2160 * 1080). They are characterized by a wide color gamut (103%), and also have popular proportions of 18: 9. The screen is protected by tempered glass Gorilla Glass 5.

This is a mid-range device, despite the fact that it looks like a flagship. Model U Pro 8-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 660, the cores of this processor have a maximum frequency of 2.2 GHz. The phone will go in two versions, the first has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory, and the second – 6 GB of operating and 128 GB of internal memory. In addition, it supports memory cards up to 1 TB. Not bad the truth.

And now about what interests young buyers the most about cameras. The front is a single camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels, nothing special. But behind there is a dual camera, both lenses have a resolution of 13 megapixels, one of them is RGB, and the second is monochrome. The main camera also has a dual flash and PDAF, and can record video 4K @ 30fps or 2K @ 60fps. Pictures taken with this camera should satisfy most users.

The Pro model also has a number of communication modules, I will list only the most important: Dual SIM (hybrid), GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and WLAN: 802.11 a / b / g / n 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz. As for the connectors, there is only a USB Type-C, but the adapter comes with 3.5.


Energy ELEPHONE U Pro receives from a battery that has a capacity of 3550 mAh. The phone also supports the Quick-Charge 3.0 quick charge function, so the charging process should not last too long. It is also worth noting that the phone supports face recognition, which is rarely found in midrange devices.

All components of the smartphone will run under the operating system Android 8.0 Oreo. How much will it cost? We do not yet know the official price, but they say that the 4/64 model will cost 390 dollars, and the 6/128 version will cost 440 dollars. If you want to know the exact price, then write it in the comments and I will definitely answer.
