The Global Sources Exhibition held in Hong Kong this year was held in April. There many companies and manufacturers unveiled some devices for the first time, as well as showed advances in different areas and made numerous declarations and advances. Elephone is a smartphone manufacturer that did not shine because of its absence in the exhibition. This presented several smartphones at that event, among which was the Elephone A6 Max, a medium-performance smartphone that already has an official launch date, which is a few days away. According to what the company has officially announced, the Elephone A6 Max will be launched on August 5, a date that is only six days away.
The smartphone is equipped with a 6.53-inch LCD display with a cut-out in the upper part in the shape of a teardrop. At least on the promotional graphics, the screen covers almost the entire front panel, but it should be remembered that especially Chinese manufacturers like to paint a bit on this issue. Elephone devotes an extraordinary amount of space to the display on its website, while the producers most often do not dwell on the screen. What is interesting, however, the brand carefully hides the information that the panel has only HD + resolution, which at 6.53 inches and 19: 9 proportions will translate into ~ 257 ppi.
The heart of Elephone A6 Max is the MediaTek MT6762V processor, which is a different version of Helio P22, which consists of eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores with a maximum clock frequency of 2.0 GHz and is produced using a 12-nm process. For this smartphone has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in memory, which can be extended using a microSD card with a maximum capacity of 256 GB. At the back of the Elephone A6 Max, there is a fingerprint reader and a double 20 Mpix camera with 2 megapixels, while the front one is single with a resolution of 20 megapixels. The work of both modules is supported by intelligent algorithms. Of course, there was also a portrait mode and beautifying the face.
The strength of the Elephone A6 Max is also the presence of the NFC module, although – quite surprisingly – it will be available only in the version with a 3450 mAh battery, while in the variant with the 3950 mAh battery it will run out. Customers will have to consider what configuration they are buying if they care about the possibility of use of Google Pay mobile payments. And since I mentioned the battery, I will immediately add that the Elephone A6 Max also offers support for wireless charging. Wired is in turn carried out via the NFC module. The smartphone works under the control of Android 9.0 Pie.
The regular price of this smartphone has been set at $159.99 on Aliexpress, although it is not known whether this is a version with an NFC module and a 3450 mAh battery, or a variant without NFC and a 3950 mAh battery. Despite everything, it is worth noting that it is very attractive. The sale of Elephone A6 Max will start on August 5, 2019. The smartphone will be available in two color versions: Starry Black and Peacock Blue. At least initially, because there is one more pink-purple on the official website.
