With the Elephone U2, the Chinese smartphone maker is the first to offer a pop-up camera in the middle class. Thanks to this solution, the device is almost borderless. A novelty for the offered price. Elephone U2 is finally on the market with the Chinese manufacturer offering a generous discount during the presale period. Unfortunately, the offer was just for a few days and many potential buyers didn’t manage to catch the deal in time. Well, no worries, since Elephone decided to extend the offer on Banggood and it will be valid again from June 24th to June 30th! There, you can get the 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB versions at a discounted price. With the Elephone U2, there is a new interesting device in which the camera is installed as a pop-up mechanism. As a result, the front is almost borderless and the smartphone looks very modern.
The Elephone U2 has a 26.6 inch large IPS display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. The brightness should be up to 500 nits, which makes the smartphone readable even in sunlight. Thanks to the extendable front camera, the Elephone U2 has barely any display edge. Due to the small dimensions, it is much smaller compared to devices with Notch. The device is available in black and blue.
The Elephone U2 is now a successor. Optically, this time you play at the flagship level, but technically you hold back a bit. This is especially evident in the processor, where the choice fell again on a MediaTek SoC. Installed this time is an Helio P70 Octa-Core together with 4 or 6 GB of RAM. Pride is Elephone in particular on the display of the Elephone U2. It is a 6.26 inch IPS panel that resolves at 2,280 x 1,080 pixels and covers 93.1 percent of the front. This is possible by putting on a pop-up front camera and keeps the bezel around narrow. On a fingerprint sensor in the display has been omitted, however – he sits right in the context of the smartphone.
On the back of the new flagship model sits a triple camera, the 16-megapixel main sensor with f / 1.6 promises quite good pictures in darker environments. The two additional 5-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors, however, do not provide for zoom or wide-angle but are only intended to support the depth detection and light recording at night.
For Elephone promises also in the front camera of Elephone U2 a true portrait effect. For this sits in the pop-up element in addition to the actual 16-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel sensor that detects depth information. Allegedly, the mechanism should withstand 300,000 loads, which is unlikely to be exploited by 2-3 years. Rounding out the features of Elephone U2 Android 9.0 Pie as the operating system and a 3,250 mAh strong battery. According to the datasheet, this should only charge with 5V / 2A, which would actually be very weak. The charging process should take several hours in this case.
