Elephone M3 Pro coming soon, Sony IMX230 camera sensor in tow
Elephone is trying hard to make a name for itself in the smartphone industry. Like many other lesser-known handset makers, Elephone is based in China, and is restlessly introducing various smartphones that offer decent (or even high-end) features at low prices. The company's newest handset is the Elephone M3 Pro, which, just like the M3 that we saw not long ago, is made out of metal.

The Elephone M3 Pro is called like that because it's better than the regular M3, though the two handsets have the same design. The M3 Pro will offer more RAM (3 GB, to be exact), and a superior rear camera which, according to Elephone, is based on a Sony IMX230 sensor (the same that's found inside Motorola's Moto X Style / Moto X Pure). The handset will also come with a fingerprint sensor, a 5.5-inch LG-made display (its resolution is currently unknown), octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor, USB Type-C port, and quick charging capabilities.

It looks like the Elephone M3 Pro will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. At the moment, we don't know when the M3 Pro will be released, and neither for what price. Would you be interested in buying this smartphone?

If these phones are not available globally or the OEMs are not able to release such phones in most of the major / developing countries then what's the point of launching such phones. These OEMs will remain as local OEMs or will not grow globally whatever they do / bring up with the specs. No point of checking such phones if it's not available.

Yeah, that's the other problem if it's available. Even Xiaomi have some phones launched a good half year ago, but that too are not available in India. Yes, there are patent issues but they can bring alternative devices of the same (Mi Note / Pro) but not lower end.
