Nonetheless, we just received news about the upcoming Elephone M2 along with some press photos. The device features a design that signifies a bit of a departure from the usual Elephone styling (and reminds a little of Huawei while at it).
Before we move on to the photos, lets talk about the specifications. The Elephone M2 is now confirmed to have an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM… which, depending on the time frame of the launch, will either make the M2 a full-blown flagship or a high-mid-range smartphone.
Moving on, the M2 will have a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, which the company claims will be sourced from LG. The M2 will keep up with the trends and will pack a fingerprint sensor on the front (which claims to recognize fingerprints in 0.5 seconds) over the home button (which appears to be a physical button). Also on the front will be a 5 mega-pixel camera on top.
The rear camera will be a 13 mega-pixel sensor, the Sony IMX214. Since the M2 is a unibody phone (Elephone’s first), you can expect the shell to feel high quality.
If you’re bored of the run-of-the-mill design, the M2 should be a welcome change with its 7.35mm slim body. There’s no word on when the phone will be available or how much it’ll cost… what would you pay for it?
