Elephone's flagship P7000 available for international preorder – fingerprint scanner, powerful hardware, low price-tag


If the Elephone P7000's promo video somehow managed to make you feel overwhelmed with an impatient desire to buy the new smartphone, you'd be happy to know that you can pre-order it right now for $229.99. The handset is available in 3 colors – black, white, and champagne (didn't see that one coming) – and will ship on the 21st of May. Orders will be delivered worldwide for the price of $0 (10 – 25 business days), or around $40 if you wish to get the device within a week after shipment.

Elephone is yet another company that seemingly wants to star in the Xiaomi – Meizu underdog-reaching-for-the-top race. To that, we can only tip our hat, as more competition is always a great thing for the consumer. For the price of $229.99 (apparently, it will jump to $297.74 when the pre-order period is over), you get a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek 6752, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (expandable), a 1080p 5.5" screen, and a 3,200 mAh battery. Photobugs should enjoy a 16 MP Sony-made sensor powered main camera, and selfie lovers should like the 8 MP frontal snapper – they at least sound good on paper. The software to drive all of this will be Android 5.0 out of the box. You even get a metal-made body and fancy fingerprint sensor posted on the back of the device, too.

And, come on – for $229.99 – you get a smartphone with Batman popping out of it – this has got to be a bargain!

"Note: This phone will only work with GSM+WCDMA+FDD-LTE networks: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz FDD-LTE 800/1800/2100/2600MHz" We didn't cover whether or not this works on US LTE bands did we?

Great phone, but NOT COMPATIBLE with AT&T 's LTE network in the USA. Too bad because the specs are impressive for the price.
