Elephone U Pro and U, a long-awaited high-end chinese phone now are saled at gearbest

After a long period of contradictory rumours concerning its new smartphones, as well as a name change (abandonment of the name S9), Elephone, a few days ago, updated its site to present the new Elephone U Pro and Elephone U. The Chinese firm took the opportunity to open the reservations for what it advertises as its new flagship. This reservation period will end on 8 February with the official presentation of these two new products to the press, live from Madrid.

The Elephone U Pro and Elephone U elicit, and it is little to say, the interest of many consumers because their technical data sheets are so tempting. There are few differences between the two versions, but they are quite large. Indeed, they do not ship the same SoC. Which is still the essential element of a smartphone. The Elephone U Pro is equipped with a SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, while the Elephone U is equipped with a SoC MediaTek Helio P23.

In terms of differences, we can also note the battery capacity which is 3550 mAh for the Elephone U Pro and 3620 mAh for the U version, both of which support fast charging. But only the Elephone U Pro has wireless recharge. Elephone has also presented wireless chargers dedicated to this smartphone.

All other elements are common to both smartphones. The Elephone U Pro and U will be offered in 4 or 6 GB of RAM with 64 or 128 GB of internal storage. It will be possible to add an SD card with a capacity of up to 1 TB! These new Elephone models are equipped with an AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 5.99 inches with Full HD+ resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels). It’s at 18:9. At the camera level, the Elephone U Pro and U are equipped with a dual 13 MP + 13 MP monochrome photo sensor at the rear. At the front, Elephone chose an 8 MP sensor that supports facial recognition. The USB port is Type-C format. No audio port, but a Type-C / 3.5 mm USB adapter is included in the package.

Note that NFC support is part of the game for both smartphones. Both support dual band for Wi-Fi, for GPS, the GLONASS system support, in addition to GPS systems, should provide good accuracy.
