HTC Desire A17
Elephone is a Chinese mobile maker which has flagged its appearance internationally. The brand is known for its design and efficient performance. With its new phone Vowney announced, the company is back in the news. The Elephone Vowney release date in India is expected to be around April 2017. Let’s go into the details.
4GB RAM, 20.7MP primary camera, 8MP front camera, 4000mAh battery, 2K display, Fingerprint scanner, NFC
Non-removable battery, Android Lollipop
The company mainly focuses on the design and the performance of the phone. So, there is nothing to complain about the processor in Elephone devices. The phone is powered by a MediaTek MT6795 Octa-core processor. Built with Cortex A53 architecture, the processor has the speed of 2.2GHz. Also, the PowerVR G6200 Graphics Processing Unit and the elegant display makes the phone a good platform for gaming.
The Elephone Vowney comes with a huge 20.7MP Sony IMX230 camera and an 8MP front camera. Claiming to be the best in this price range, Vowney’s main camera comes with dual-color LED flash, Assistant Beam autofocus, and the very high 5256x3944p image resolution. The 8MP front camera is a pretty decent one and better than most of the high-end range selfie shooters. But, it doesn’t come with flash. The primary camera also features Continuous Shooting, HDR mode, Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, and Touch to focus. The video recording quality can go up to Full HD (1920x1080) resolution.
The Elephone Vowney packs a non-removable Li-ion battery with the capacity of 4000mAh. When compared to the other mobiles at the same price range, this is a decent battery backup. Also, the MediaTek 6795 makes it more efficient in battery consumption.
Design and Display:
Weighing around 170 grams, the phone comes with the dimensions 153x76.8x8.9mm. The 5.5-inch large IPS LCS 2K (1440x2560p resolution) display paired with a capacitive multi-touch screen makes the phone a mini-screen for better gaming and video experience. The screen has the pixel density of 534 ppi and the screen to body percentage of the phone is 70.81%. The rounded edges, metallic body and rear matte finish make the phone hardly slipping and keep it tucked in the palm. The fingerprint scanner is rear-mounted and placed right below the camera.
The mobile comes with a 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, which can be expandable up to 64GB with a MicroSD card. The phone comes with a dedicated memory expandable slot. Also, it comes with a separate dual SIM card slot where both the SIM cards support 4G connectivity.
Additional features of the phone include an Accelerometer, a Proximity Sensor, a Compass, a Gyro Sensor, and a rear-mounted Fingerprint sensor. The Elephone Vowney price in India is expected to be Rs 19999.
Apart from the brand, which is still in the upgrowth stage, everything about this phone is top-notch. Yes, it comes with an Android Lollipop OS, but reports hint that an OS upgrade will be given in the mid-2017. So keep an eye on this one.
