Elephone U surfaced recently as one of the smartphones to be unveiled by Elephone, a Chinese OEM. The other smartphone being the Elephone U Pro. However, these smartphones have not been officially released by the manufacturer. The release of these smartphones is expected during the early period of next month. That said, I’ll like us to take a critical look at what to expect from this exciting Elephone U smartphone.

Mouth-Watering Curved Design

If we can remember vividly, the Elephone S8‘s design drew a comparison with the mighty Samsung S8. Well, we can say it’s not too original considering the clone-like nature, but credits have to be given to the OEM for taking the design aspect of their smartphones serious. The Elephone U comes with a staggering bezel-less design with curved edges still screaming semblance to the Samsung edged devices. Elephone U, as a result of the super slim bezels, bags a screen-to-body ratio of 83%. Want to know what’s even sleeker? The curved edges have a sidebar whose function is to start apps quickly. Cementing a glass mix body, its colour variance is Black and Blue. Portability is its watchword as it sports 160g weight and 8.4mm thickness. I’ll hate it if I forget to mention the cool illuminating design portrayed by its rear. Dual cameras, fingerprint scanner, dual-LED flash and the smartphone’s manufacturer’s logo also grace the rear location.

AMOLED Capacitive Display With Premium Protection

Unlike most smartphones released by Elephone, Elephone U features the AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that’ll make it out with its 6.0 inches display. You’ll ask me, ‘what makes the AMOLED capacitive display better than the IPS LCD capacitive display?’ Simply check out the article that focuses on these two screens, and get the best answer to your question. Commanding the screen’s sharpness is the handiwork of both the screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and 403 PPI pixel density. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 controls the defence line of the smartphone’s display in case it drops from high places.

Triple Camera Setup

Don’t get perplexed, the Elephone U’s triple camera setup comprises of the combined 13MP dual cameras at its rear and the single 8MP camera at its fore. The rear cameras have the pleasure of 4K Video recording, [email protected] video resolution and [email protected] video resolution. Illumination effects are rendered by the dual-LED flash at the rear.

Good CPU, High-End GPU and Nougat OS

MediaTek MT6763 of the house Helio P23, the bloodline of the 64-bit architecture and 8 cores of the ARM-Cortex A53 that clocks at 2.0GHz. *Tell me, you got the humour associated with Queen Daenerys, a character in G.O.T. The graphics are well taken care of by the ARM Mali-G71 GPU while the OS running on the device is the Android 7.1 Nougat OS.

Supreme Multitasking And Extravagant Storage

In these areas, two variants were devised by Elephone. 4GB and 6GB RAM variants in the multitasking segment, and 64 GB plus 128GB ROM for storage extravagance. Adding to this, the OEM included a microSD slot that can take up a micro SD card of 128GB.

Quick Charging Li-Poly Battery

Elephone U is powered by a non-removable Li-Poly 3,620mAh battery that charges relatively fast as a result of Quick Charging technology present on it.
