One of the long-awaited smartphones by Elephone has been launched and has gone into the market as at today, 22nd of Nov,2018.
Elephone A5 is an all screen device with a notch and five camera setup marking the first smartphone to feature a triple camera to the back and dual camera to the front on Android 9 and the phone is designed just like the budget all screen device “ELEPHONE A4 and A4 Pro“.
Elephone has up to 4 new smartphones to be launched as we set to enter 2019 and trust me when I tell you, these devices are super awesome, but not to waste our time let’s jump to why we here.
Elephone A5 DESIGN
The design of this device is really very attractive, with its body inspired by natural gemstone plus a straight line aesthetics. Both the front and back side of the device is made with durable glass created by atom-class craftsmanship with a stainless frame and Curved edges created by diamond cutting technology which is shining and stunning.
We have a triple camera on the rear side with a LED flashlight which is arranged vertically like what we have on Tecno Camon 11 just that the Camon 11 is dual.
A wider screen equals a wider view plus a notch, dual selfie camera, side fingerprint sensor.
To be honest, this device is classic and barely looking at this device will make you wish u seeing it in real life and probably owning one, but not to worry, this device comes cheap.
Elephone A5 DISPLAY
The display of the Elephone A5 is another to talk about, it features a screen display size of 6.18-inch on a 5.5-inch smartphone i.e, the screen t body ratio on this device is quite high and the bezel to the top and sides are slim.
The screen is made to support full HD+ display which is further covered by 2.5D curved rugged glass to protect the display, it has a display resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels with up to 403 pixels per inch (PPI), 24-bit color depth with an IPS, LCD capacitive touch-screen display type.
Elephone A5 CAMERA
This device is originally made for photography, five camera setups say it all. Let’s start with the back; it sports a triple camera design, aligned vertically plus a dual LED flashlight aligned horizontally.
The three cameras include 12MP which is the main camera + 5.0MP + 0.3 secondary cameras, these cameras work together for the purpose of achieving good quality shots most especially in a dark and backlight environment.
Another interesting feature about this device is, it enables users to adjust the depth of field i.e users can blur the background for as much as they much and vice versa.
On the front is a 20MP main selfie camera which takes care of the details + 2.0MP second front camera sensor to support the main camera in enhancement.
Elephone A5 PERFORMANCE
Elephone A5 is powered by the MTK Helio P60 64-bit processor with an Octa-core clocked at the speed of 2.0GHz.
The chipset is an updated one and best processor by MediaTek, it features a faster AI processing, consumes less power, camera enhancement, and processing plus it is supported by 4GB/6GB LPDDR4X RAM which is faster than the previous version LPDDR4 and 64GB/128GB to further fasten up operations like multitasking, launching large apps, playing heavy games and so on. The device feature ARM Mali-G72 GPU for gaming.
Elephone A5 POWER, OS, OTHERS
Power is one of the most important things to look at before getting a phone. Elephone A5 houses a 4,000mAh battery capacity which can do well for it users plus it supports fast charging.
Tecno Camon 11 and 11 Pro missed out on the Android 9 which the Elephone A5 is running on. The new Google OS is faster and smarter than the Android 8 Oreo.
We have a side fingerprint ID which works fast but might be somehow since we are used to the rear and front Touch ID but not to worry, users have an option of using the face ID system which is pretty cool has some of us are familiar with it already.
It is further equipped with NXP smart PA which enables the device high-quality effects.
