Elephone has unveiled some new details about their upcoming P9000 smartphone, which we know will be one of the first to use MediaTek’s X20 CPU. Now we have some new information to sort through, including some news about the hardware and software.
The P9000 is expected to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but it’s not completely clear if that’ll be preloaded right away or if it will be a software update soon after launch. The hardware side of things looks extremely compelling, with a zero bezel design that makes for one of the best screen-to-body ratios we’ve ever seen on a smartphone, as you can see in the photos above.
The device is also expected to ship with a side fingerprint scanner, which is a little bit different than the rear-mounted scanners we’re frequently seeing on flagship Android devices. There’s also a USB type C port on board, and the internal hardware is pretty competitive with 4 GB of RAM, a 21 megapixel camera, and a 1080p display.
We’ll keep you updated as we get closer to the actual launch of the Elephone P9000.
