Chinese brand Elephone recently launched the Elephone S1 in the Philippines. The smartphone features a quad core MediaTek processor, a 13MP Sony IMX camera, and a P3,999 price tag.


The Elephone S1

With a price tag a shade below 4k, the Elephone S1 has a lot to offer. For starters, it features a 5-inch 720p display with on-cell lamination and IPS tech. It has a metal frame with round corners and back-to-back glass panels. Inside you’ll find a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, a Mali-400MP GPU and 1GB of RAM. It has 8GB of storage (which you can expand up to 64GB via a microSD card) and a non-removable 1800mAh battery.

The S1 also boasts a 13MP camera touting a capable Sony IMX149 sensor, and a 2MP front facing one. The main camera has various shooting modes, 1080p recording and a tough Sapphire lens. At this point though, image quality is still a question mark.

The rest of the specs include Bluetooth v4, GPS, an FM Radio and a fingerprint scanner.

Price and Availability

Those interested in getting the Elephone S1 will have to wait a few more days. Selling will start on April 18, 12 noon. The smartphone is exclusively available at Lazada.
