The Chinese manufacturer Elephone has introduced the Elephone A5, a new mid-range smartphone. In comparison with its predecessor, it has a much better features, but with a price of about $199.99, but also a whole lot more expensive.
So far, it was in the smartphones Elephone A-series partly disappointing entry-level devices . The Elephone A5, however, now settles in the middle class and should do a lot better. This already starts with the design, which looks pretty chic with narrow display edges on the front and the multi-color back in Twilight .
Of course, the Elephone A5 also has a notch within the 6.18-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2,246 x 1,080 pixels. It houses two front cameras, whose resolutions are 20 and 2 megapixels.
The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 octa-core processor, which can rely on 4/6 GB of memory. The internal memory holds 64 or 128 GB of data and can be easily expanded by microSD card. In addition, a potent battery with 4,000 mAh capacity and on the back of a triple camera is used. It has a 12, a 5 and a 0.3 megapixel sensor, which should allow both a real bokeh effect, as well as a good low-light performance.
Although Elephone promotes the new Elephone A5 with Android 9.0 Pie, it will initially ship with Android 8.1 Oreo. The current version of Android will then come at a later date by a guaranteed OTA update on the smartphone.
The Elephone A5 starts immediately in the presale and can be pre-ordered at the online store Gearbest for the price of about $199.99. The equipment sounds good, but after the disappointing Elephone A4, I’m a little skeptical and would prefer to wait for a purchase first reviews.
