Over the past month, Elephone has been teasing us over and over with its new upcoming high-class phones — the Elephone U and Elephone U Pro. Shiny phones built with metal and glass, curved AMOLED displays, dual cameras on the back, and presumably bargain price.

So, here's the quick rundown on both phones — they will have the same build and hardware. The difference is that the “regular” Elephone U comes with an octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 ticking at 2 GHz, while the Elephone U Pro will be powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 clocked at 2.2 GHz.

The Elephone U and U Pro draw near. The phones will accept 1 TB microSD cards.
As for the rest of the hardware — it's pretty much the same on both devices. A 6-inch curved AMOLED display with a ratio of 18:9, 4 GB to 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB to 128 GB of storage, two 13 MP sensors for the back camera and a single 8 MP shooter on the selfie side. The Elephone U Pro can take 4K video, while the regular U can't. However, both phones will be using their dual cameras to get a DSLR-emulating portrait mode. Both phones will also support that trendy face unlock feature, which will arrive via a software update to be pushed later.

In the battery department, we have a 3,620 mAh cell on the Elephone U and a smaller, 3,550 mAh juicebox in the Elephone U Pro. Both support quick charging and the Pro version has a wireless charging module.

If you are one who stores tons of media on their phone, you will be delighted to hear that the Elephone U and Elephone U Pro can both be outfitted with a microSD of up to — get this — 1 TB to further enhance their storage. That's quite a lot there!

Pre-registrations for the Elephone U and Elephone U Pro have been opened, but no price has been announced yet. You can register your interest and get email updates when the devices become available by following the link below.
