The bezel-less, unibody Elephone S3 will reportedly hit stores next month
posted by Ben R. / Mar 26, 2016, 7:28 AM
According to the folks at GizmoChina, the S3 will include a 5.2-inch full-HD display, which we'll assume to be of 1920 x 1080 resolution. The device will not include any capacitive buttons on the front, meaning core functions like Menu or Back can be shown and hidden on the display at a user's discretion. Under the hood, there will be MediaTek's octa-core MT6753 processor accompanied by 3 GB of RAM and 16 gigs of internal storage.
To the rear, the report mentions a 13-megapixel Sony-made shooter, which isn't too surprising given Elephone's history of deploying Sony's camera tech. The rear side will also be adorned with a fingerprint sensor.
Keeping the lights on will be a 2100 mAh battery. While the Elephone S3 contains relatively mid-range features and thus shouldn't be as juice-thirsty as the more powerful smartphones around, this still seems quite a meager amount of battery capacity. One has to wonder whether Elephone hasn't overly compromised battery life in favor of sleek design.
There's no word on price as yet, but it's likely to arrive in the four colors of silver, gold, rose gold and grey. There's also no specific word on the release date, but the device should be available from next month.

I like Elephone but really? 2100 mah on a Full HD device with a crappy mtk6753 CPU????? If youre into elephone just wait for an american version of a M3 or the p9000 even with the Mali 860mp4 still waaaay better than the Mali 720.

2100mAh is side effect of slim figure, elephone S2 is 6.8mm thick and this phone most likely thinner than that (they should follow xiaomi and use bigger battery, not slimming it down) and mtk6753 isnt that far from SD615, its totally fine for $129 phone (elephone S2 last year launched at that price)

I really like the look of abezel-less handsets, but I am not sure how practical they could be. I mean every time you grab your phone, you could activate the screen on the edges unless they come up with a solution to prevent such accidental touches.

I'm confused, I thought the bezel where the sections on the top or bottom that held the speaker and home button and such, no?

In my opinion, the highlight of the Elephone S3 are: bezelless desigh, MTK6753 octa-core chipset, 3GB RAM and the 13MP sony rear camera. While the short-point are, the first must be the 2100mAh battery, it is strongly not enough for the specifications. The other is the 16gb rom, it is low too. The mystery is its price. Compare to the other MTK6753 mid-range device, I will prefer the Oukitel k6000 pro with 6000mAh battery, Android 6.0 and 3GB+32GB storage. Its price is only $143.99 now at gearbest.
