Elephone anyone? We thought not. This lesser known Chinese manufacturer has just announced the oddly named Vowney. Like other Chinese brands, Elephone eschews complete originality but does shine the spotlgith on blazing specs, and the Vowney is no different.The handset looks fantastic, premium and with a metal chassis, while its specs are eye-popping. The Vowney gets a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, a 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek MTK6795 Helio X10 processor, and 4GB of RAM. The X10 is not the best chipset to deal with Quad HD resolution, but hopefully the added RAM can back up the silicon and make this a powerful smartphone. Other specs include LTE connectivity, Dual SIM capability, fingerprint scanner, 32GB of internal storage, a micro SD card slot, a 21 megapixel Sony made smartphone with 4K video recording, and an 8 megapixel front facing lens. The new Elephone Vowney get Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. In terms of looks and specs we are seeing very little wrong, this is a true flagship. That makes the price tag even more mind-blowing as the Vowney costs just $289.90, making this a true bargain and a very compelling smartphone. Elephone even says it is working on a Windows 10 Mobile variant that will pack an Intel processor.
