This is China's first smartphone to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box
Right now, the only smartphone that comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box is the Motorola-made Google Nexus 6. The second handset to have Lollipop pre-installed at launch may not come from a major company, as you’d expect, but from Elephone - a phone maker based in China.

Elephone’s Lollipop smartphone is called P6000, and will be released on December 27 for around $170. As you’d imagine after seeing its price, the P6000 doesn’t offer high-end features. But it’s not a terrible device, either, as it sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by a 64-bit, quad-core MediaTek processor. The handset also comes with LTE, dual SIM support, a 13 MP rear camera, and a 2 MP front-facing camera. Moreover, it's got 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2700 mAh battery.

It looks like the Elephone P6000 will be available for international orders (check the source link below for more details). However, since we don’t know much about this brand, we’d advise you to proceed with caution in case you’re interested in buying the P6000.

What? I agree that the Nexus 6 should have had a lower price, but $170? That's pure nonsense right there :)

But if you are Hugo Barra shouldn't you be telling us about Xiaomi phones?

If you open the link provided, they say that Lollipop will be available next year OTA, so not exactly out of the box :D

Florin T. how about reading your source before posting? "( Android 5.0 will be available via OTA next year. )" is not exactly "China's first smartphone to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box".

Damn, for $170 this is pretty damn great. Blows the Moto G out of the water.

Actually, I'm the distributer of Elephone in West Africa and I can say the devices are really solid and have innovation. I'm not surprised the big Chinese brands are taking big shares from the giant mobile companies. With less than half the price of the know brands you can gr a flagship that both performs great and look great as well. The P6000 will soon be available and I'm patiently waiting for the first samples :)
