Elephone A5 is Released with Android 9, Five Cameras and Powerful Battery
The Chinese manufacturer Elephone has just announced another model of its line of intermediaries, offering three rear cameras, two front-facing cameras, hardware with a MediaTek chipset and a powerful 4,000 mAh battery.
Elephone is not one of the most well-known manufacturers in the world market, but the Chinese brand has already been offering interesting designs with good performance and at really attractive prices.
The device in question is the Elephone A5 and features a body made of metal frame and glass finish. The back cover features mirrored detail and gradient colors with effects that change according to the brightness. There are four variants of color, three of different shades and one black.
The smartphone is very reminiscent of the already known Huawei P20 Pro in terms of design thanks to the camera elements arranged on the back cover and the inscriptions located on the left side. But despite the physical similarities, they are much more different compared to hardware.
The A5 features a 2246 x 1080-pixel screen, a 618-inch IPS LCD panel, Full HD+ resolution at 18:9 ratio, is equipped with the MediaTek Helio P60 processor and comes with a combo of 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage.
The device offers biometric reader on the side of the body, lock button just above and volume buttons next. It arrives with a 4,000 mAh battery, as has already been reinforced, and will receive Android 9.0 Pie very soon via FOTA (over-the-air firmware upgrade).
By having five cameras all over your body, this is an important issue to be raised, but do not expect too much. The model has a 12 MP rear main sensor and two auxiliary sensors of 5 MP and 0.3 MP. On the front panel, we have the main sensor of 20 MP and a secondary camera of 2 MP.
The same positive note for the connectivity compartment, in which the Elephone A5 stands out for the Dual nanoSIM, the Wi-Fi ac dual band, the Bluetooth 4.2, the GPS, the slot for the microSD, and the 4G/LTE (with band 20).
The body dimensions of the model are 155 x 75.5 x 8.1 mm (height x width x depth) and are already available in pre-order on Chinese websites, including GearBest. The device will be available from December 6th.
Versions and prices
As we mentioned, the Elephone A5 comes in a single version, at least in its release. The phone, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of memory, goes on sale in China from December 3 until December 19 for $199.99. For the rest of the region, it will cost $239.99, about 210 euros to change.
