Earlier we told you that Elephone G2 is going to be the cheapest Android Lollipop 5.0 smartphone, which is coming to the market. Several days ago we still hadn’t all details confirmed, but now the phone is officially listed and you can buy one for just $99. That’s a great price for such smartphone.
Here’s a quick recap of the specifications. Elephone G2 comes one of the latest MTK’s processors – MTK6732. It’s a 64-bit quad-core processor and each core is clocked at 1.5GHz. From our personal experience we can say that it performs great. Elephone G2 is also paired with very powerful GPU – Mali-T760. If properly optimized, it can achieve great results. For example Samsung Galaxy Note 4 packs the same GPU.
The phone comes with 4.5-inch IPS screen with a little bit disappointing FWVGA resolution. It’s 854 × 480 pixels, which leads to 217 ppi density. It’s not so bad, but it’s far away from something that we can call good. However you can’t ask for more with this price.
Elephone G2 has two cameras – 2 MP front camera and 8 MP with flashlight back one. There are 1 GB RAM memory and 8 GB in-build storage (microSD card up to 32 GB supported). The battery is with 2300mAh capacity.
However it’s not only about the price. Elephone G2 also supports 4G FDD-LTE: 800/1800/2100/2600MHz and it gives you the opportunity to choose among several different operating systems. The phone will support Cyanogenmod, MIUI and LEWA ROM. It’s also rumored that it could support Flyme OS as well. Initially it will ship with Android 5.0 and later you can switch to another operating system.
