Elephone Ivory $99 with octacore chipset goes live today
Elephone are saying that their Elephone Ivory is the most cost effective octacore phone on the market today, while this might not be true here are the full specs.
Elephone might have been making low-cost phones for years already, but they have only recently really made a push in to the sub $100 scene.
Their first phone (well real phone) to cost less than $100 retail is the new Elephone Ivory, an octacore device with 5-inch display that Elephone says is the most cost effective 8 core phone on the market today.
Elephone Ivory Specs
First up it’s good to see that the Elephone Ivory isn’t simply a knock off of a Meizu M2 or Redmi Phone like we have seen from other phone makers, but it does look a little ‘Ulefone’ inspired with a grey rear panel option and curved 2.5D display upfront.
Elephone have tried to make the Ivory as down to earth as possible, so you won’t see a fingerprint scanner, hear rate monitor, eye unlock or other gimmicks. Instead the phone comes with a 5-inch 720p display, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, and Mediatek MT6753 chipset running at 1.3Ghz.
According to the official Elephone Ivory specifications page, the phone also boasts a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, dual micro SIM support and a 2800mAh battery. FM radio and LTE bands 1/3/7 and 20 are supported too.
Elephone state that the Elephone Ivory is up for pre-order now for $99.99, that’s the retail price, and as they suggest that it will make a good Christmas gift we hope that they orders will be shipped quickly.
It will be interesting to see how well the Elephone Ivory does at $99.99, as the UMi Romesells for a similar price with AMOLED display, 3GB RAM and fingerprint scanner. Which would you choose?
