Elephone P9000 is one eye-catching smartphone which also packs enough punch to impress. It parades an elegant design, almost bezel-less huge Full HD display, a True octa-core processor and ample RAM, amongst other superlatives.
You may be right to describe the Elephone P9000 as a blend of the M2 and Vowney smartphones from its maker, design wise.
The Elephone P9000 borrowed the metal material from the former for its chassis and the plastic from the latter for its rear panel.
The metal frame comes in at just 7.3 millimetres, suggesting a slim smartphone. If you have seen the OnePlus 2, you may be reminded of that device looking at the rear cover which has sandpaper-like touch to it for better grip.
Display and Camera
The Elephone P9000 packs in a mammoth 5.5-inch LG-manufactured display boasting Full HD (1,080p) resolution.
You will certainly be attracted by the very slim bezels bordering the touchscreen. The LTPS OGS panel promises immersive wide viewing angles.
On the camera front, this behemoth does not disappoint. Elephone P9000 rocks a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 camera with f/2.0 aperture, laser autofocus and dual-tone LED flash on the rear for superb images.
This shooter can capture stunning 4K videos and deliver RAW output. Selfie addicts will also be excited by the robust 8-megapixel camera on the front.
Hardware and Software
Armed with an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor, the Elephone P9000 certainly looks like a device that will run fluidly without glitches. This belief is further given credibility by the generous 4 GB of RAM in the package.
You may expect this phablet to handle everything you throw at it. The internal storage is also ample at 32 GB and is further expandable by up to 256 GB using a microSD card.
Another of the awesome values the Elephone P9000 offers is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system it houses under the hood.
The Elephone P9000 is provided with juice by a 3,000mAh battery with wireless charging and Quick Charge support.
Elephone P9000 offers reversible USB Type-C port and, interestingly for a device at this price, NFC connectivity.
Given the impressive specifications of this handset, it is not wholly surprising to find that it also comes with a fingerprint scanner for added protection. The dual-SIM phablet works on 4G LTE networks.
Pricing and Availability
Elephone P9000 is not yet available in Nigeria, but you can buy the smartphone from a third party seller on Jumia. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Elephone P9000 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N59,000 to N75,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
