After the recent problems with the Samsung Note 7, people became more aware of what can go wrong with a smartphone.

This is perhaps why Elephone feels the need to assure its customers that the batteries on the Elephone S7 and R9 will be safe to use.According to the Elephone s director of product safety Cohen, both the Elephone S7 and R9 will pack absolutely safe batteries.He explained that Elephone s battery supplier is the best mobile manufacturer in China, with a fail rate of less than 3 out of a million.Always according to Cohen, the interior design of the Elephone & R9 is not just elegant, but it also gives the phone a strong structure which should avoid unintentional bending of the device and subsequently security risks.In addition to that Elephone also improved the battery algorithm for charging, in order to reduce problems like overheating and overcharging.If you re interested in buying the Elephone S7 or Elephone R9, they re giving away coupon to those who join the mailing list.

In a very self referential but still quite interesting and fun to watch video, Elephone just answered some questions about their products and smartphones in general.

Let’s check it out down below.

As you can see in the video, the first question they are asked is “what smartphone are you using?”.

To our surprise many Elephone employees admitted using handsets produced by other phone makers, such as Apple and Xiaomi.

Others were instead using Elephone P8s and S8s which they prefer for the battery life and beautiful design respectively.

To the next question “which Elephone device would you recommend?”, they went with the Elephone S8 and possibly the upcoming Elephone S9 which is said to bring even better specs to the table.

The Elephone S7 has trending a fair bit of late due to its design which is similar to the better-known Samsung counterpart and much lower sale price, of course .

Word is that the S7 Elephone is set to receiver fast charging.According to rumors, Elephone is indeed working on the development of fast charging technology for the S7.

The feature is still in testing stage and Elephone still hasn t announced it officially, so we ll have to wait for that.This new leak comes after they showed various new features, such as sun screen light adjustment, split-screen, E-touch 2.0 and video smoothing.It appears as Elephone is putting a big effort into the development of this smartphone, this is totally comprehensible since they market it as their yearly flagship.Some info about the Elephone S7…The Elephone S7 has claimed to have already sold more than 50,000 units in the presale period only.

The phone comes in the top version with an Helio X20 deca-core CPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The Elephone S7 also distinguishes itself for its dual edge curved screen and elegant design.If you re interested in pre-ordering one or you want to know more about the Elephone S7, you can check Elephone s official page and Facebook.

These days most of the Elephone-based action is centered around the new Elephone S7 and potentially Elephone R9, both models should make a presale appearance this month already.But seems like the Elephone engineers are really working around the clock, because right after they more or less finished working on the S7 and E9 they focused their minds and hands on yet another device to expand the company s already bloated portfolio.Piece of rumor just landed in our mailbox along two pictures, so the new Elephone C1 seems legit and you can even already look at its design.

And on top of that we have some specifications of this upcoming phone for you.Based on the pictures it s clear that Elephone C1 will be available in two color, dark blue and gold.

Display should be an 5.5-inch one with FullHD resolution, phone should have Android 6.0 Marshmallow as the system and fingeprint scanner will definitely make an appearance.

Body of the phone will be full metal so looking good on the design front.But that s about everything we know about the planned Elephone C1 model, but knowing Elephone enthusiasm i m sure we will know way more about it in the coming days.

The Elephone S8 just came out and Elephone are already working on their next big hit – the Elephone S9.

The smartphone is indeed rumored to be coming with an high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and other Samsung S8-like features.

Some of the Samsung S8 inspired features we’ll find on the Elephone S9 are the 18:9 display aspect ratio and the use of a flexible AMOLED display, a first for Elephone.

So, in theory, the Elephone S9 will sport a similar screen-to-body ratio to the Samsung device, with very thin side bezels (because of the curved display) and thicker top and bottom ones.

People over at Elephone are really excited about the phone and they’re working hard to make it a great flagship alternative, also for that reason the smartphone won’t be cheap.

You can expect to pay around half as much as a Samsung Galaxy S8, which wouldn’t be a lot if the S9 is powered by an high-end Snapdragon CPU.

The S7 s pricing starts at only $139.99, and the Elephone S7 has 140,000 preorders already!140,000 preorders is pretty incredible for a phone company like Elephone to reach, so how do they go about supplying that demand?In batches is the answer!

In a very unusual marketing move, Elephone have decided to distance themselves from the upcoming Samsung S9 and change the name of what we’ve been calling Elephone S9 & S9 Pro for weeks to Elephone U and U Pro for the beefier variant.

Elephone say that the “U” reminds the shape of the curved display and they’re probably going to find other meanings as well in the future.

What’s somewhat funny is that we already have “U” smartphones on the market, but then again, there are probably phones with every letter of the alphabet by now.

Back to the important stuff, the Elephone U and Elephone U Pro will be coming with a Mediatek Helio P23 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 CPU respectively.

Elephone unveiled that one of the handset scored 80563 as top score on the Antutu benchmarks platform, other scores were: 80127, 79813, 79428 and 79012.

The Chinese phone maker did not want to reveal which of the two phones achieved said result but it’s quite obvious we’re looking at the Elephone U, as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 is able of scoring around 100k.

The Elephone U and Elephone U Pro are two of the most hyped devices we’ve seen released in the last period.

The smartphones do indeed feature some high-end specs going from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 CPU and curved AMOLED display to the 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

All of this hardware needs to be packed somewhere though; today Elephone shows us where.

As you can see in the image above, we’re talking about the blank motherboard frame.

Elephone say that, thanks to the CNC cutting technology, they were able to precisely cut the frame, giving it a clean and neat look.

After the cutting process, Elephone will add all the components that make the Elephone U series what it is, with high quality standards and using the best machinery available on the market.

The jury is still out on if bigger is better, but bigger is usually more popular hence Elephant s decision to build a larger phone.At 6-inches, the Elephone Max will be the companies largest smartphone produced to date and follows the trend of larger displays which we ve seen even Apple follow with larger iPhone models.The 6-inch Elephone Max promises to offer a decent screen to body ratio, i.e a narrow border design perhaps similar to new phones from Xiaomi and Huawei and will boasts dual rear cameras which are rumoured to record video at up to 4K.An ultra-slim metal body will contain the rest of the hardware, RAM and processor which will run an Android 7.0 operating system.The final details we know so far are that the Elephone Max won t be too expensive as the company says they plan to make it as cost effective as possible with an attractive price.News of the Elephone Max joins news of the Elephone H1, Elephone ELE Box 2 and a couple more new Elephone handsets due to launch in the coming months.

Elephone won’t stop hyping up their soon launching Elephone S8 and after releasing some photos of the Golden Elephone S8, they have just uploaded a video showing off the back of the phone.

Slightly disappointing I must say, we really hoped to see more of the device but Elephone is choosing to “leak” just enough info to make us talk about it.

And sadly they are right, as the Elephone S8 is probably one of the most awaited Xiaomi Mi Mix “inspired” phones to be coming on the market, it’s hard not to talk about it.

That said, what else do we already know about the phone?

Well, Elephone previously announced that the S8 will be featuring a big 6.0-inch display with 2K resolution.

Other than this Golden / Mirror-ish Elephone S8 variant, we’re expected to see Black and Blue options as well; hopefully we won’t have to wait until Christmas to check out those.

Elephone has another new smartphone waiting to be released on the market and we have the first official details!Elephone don t like to have a gap between launches, so while pre sales for their Elephone S7 model are still in full swing the controversial phone maker has begun to tease details of an all new model.Earlier today Elephone emailed us to reveal that by the end of 2016 the Elephone Z1 smartphone should be available to buy and will feature even higher specs than those we have seen in previous models.According to the company the Elephone Z1 will run as much as 6GB RAM, boast 64GB internal memory and come with Android 7.0 straight out of the box.

Performance is likely to be pretty strong too as the phone will use the latest 16nm Mediatek Helio P20 processor.Camera performance has also been mentioned with Elephone promising a good experience.

We don t have the full specs of the camera, but we do know it will be a single camera design and the sensor will be supplied by Samsung.So there it is!

Elephone finally made really clear what differentiates the Elephone U and Elephone U Pro.

Which to our surprise seem to be only two elements, eager to know which?

So, in their latest press release Elephone revealed that the two smartphones will pack different CPUs – something we already knew.

What’s been confirmed is that we’ll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor on the higher end Elephone U Pro, meanwhile the non-pro U is getting a MediaTek Helio P23 CPU.

Elephone say they went with the MediaTek CPU on the plan variant to lower price and make it more affordable for the masses, so that everybody can enjoy the beautifully crafted phone with its curved AMOLED display.

Other than the SoC, the other main difference will be in the material used for both phones.

New day, new Elephone S8 “leak”.

This time we have a look at the Blue version of the aforementioned phone.

Elephone also decided 240p video quality is apparently enough for Youtube, so with this in mind let’s have a look at the somewhat grainy video.

And there it is, much like the older and successful Elephone S7, also the S8 is going to feature a glossy blue back cover, but this time it’ll be made of glass which the company says will bring a more premium look and improved scratch resistance.

As far as specs go, Elephone already announced the Elephone S8 will be featuring the latest and powerful MediaTek Helio X27; the rest of the hardware is still a mystery.

Elephone say the S8 could possibly launch in August and that’s less than two months away.
