Elephone's upcoming metal-clad 5.3-incher adds leather to the equation

Elephone's upcoming metal-clad 5.3-incher adds leather to the equation
Elephone has posted to social media, images of a new handset that is apparently on the way. Short on details, the post does tell us that the model carries a 5.3-inch screen, which Elephone says is the most suitable size for the hand. According to the manufacturer, the unit will be unveiled in the first quarter of 2016, which is not as far away as you might think.

Besides the design of the phone, the color combination seen on the device stands out, especially the orange leather employed on the top and the bottom of the handset. It provides quite a contrast with the metal used on the back. And the black panel in front also makes this an Elephone you'll never forget.

If the device does get to see the light of day next quarter, we could see more leaks appear shortly. Eventually, we should have all of the information that is important to you, like the specs, availability, and the price. Meanwhile, feel free to click on the slideshow to see a different looking handset that will make those holding it, stand out in a crowd.

Too bad the leather won't age well.

There is no leather on the Note 3, it's all plastic.

Will only be good if it doesn't have the usual problem of the display being stuck in the middle of the screen.
