Elephone PX Pro Preview.

Affordable smartphone with pop-up camera.

Elephone is one of the manufacturers who don't bring models
to the market very often. Nevertheless, Elephone regularly surprises us with
affordable smartphones like the Elephone E10. With the Elephone PX Pro has been
announced that it combines some promising features at an attractive price of
$169. Let's see on it in details.

Design and display

The design of the new smartphone looks like the Elephone PX
along with a pop-up selfie camera. The full view display with a 19:9 aspect
ratio is present on the front for immersive gaming and movie-watching
experience. There’s a no big change on the front side of the smartphone, it
fully resembles with Elephone PX.

Elephone PX Pro looks refreshed on the rear side, as it
features some changes in regard to its predecessor. Apart from the horizontal
dual cameras, and an LED flash, we can see changed shape and placement of the
fingerprint scanner. The new placement looks far better than the old one. The
gradient color finish gives it a premium look.

The volume rocker and the power button sits on the right
side of the smartphone.

With a 6.53 inch display , it is a fairly large smartphone,
although the screen diagonal for 2020 is almost average. The front camera was
housed in a pop-up module and moves out of the housing if necessary. The
display itself has a Full HD resolution and works with IPS technology.

There is a modern USB-C connection on the bottom . The
manufacturer has unfortunately don't placed a headphone jack.



A Mediatek Helio P70 processor provides a good the computing
power . The Elephone PX Pro is well positioned for its price range. The
eight-core processor ensures good performance in the system and apps and is
divided into two clusters. 4x ARM Cortex-A73, which work with a maximum of 2.10
GHz for demanding tasks and 4x further energy-saving Cortex-A53 clusters, which
clock with a maximum of 1.90 GHz. In addition, the Elephone PX Pro has 4GB of
RAM , which should ensure good multitasking capability. It has the permanent
memory is 128GB and can be expanded with a MicroSD.


Elephone PX Pro camera

The Elephone PX Pro surprises with a number of cameras.
While most cheap smartphones today have three or more lenses with no real added
value, the Elephone PX Pro has installed a simple dual camera. The main sensor
is a 48 megapixel sensor , probably the Samsung GM1. It uses 12 megapixel pixel
binning and is a very good sensor for the price of the Elephone Px Pro. Of
course, it also depends on what the manufacturer uses software to extract from
the pictures. The second camera is only a depth sensor for portraits with a
blurred background. The front camera has 16 megapixels.

Connectivity and battery

In terms of connectivity, Elephone almost delivers a
wish-free package. What we miss on the smartphone is actually only the
headphone jack. On the other hand, there is a triple slot for two SIMs and a
MicroSD at the same time, NFC, an infrared transmitter, dual-band wifi and
Bluetooth (probably 4.2) . All important network frequencies for use in Europe
are also supported (B1 / B3 / B5 / B7 / B8 / B20 / B28ab).

But, unfortunately, the battery is not as fun. With 3300mAh,
the energy storage is significantly smaller than that of competing products.
Active users can look for another cell phone. With an active use of 3-4 hours
per day, the battery should always guarantee a full day's runtime. The Elephone
PX Pro can then be charged with 10 watts via cable. As a small bonus, there is
also wireless charging.


The Elephone PX Pro is available on Gearbest for just $ 169.
For this price, the cell phone has really good hardware on board. The 48
megapixel camera could theoretically take good photos, the Helio P70 is enough
for good system performance and the memory is also well-sized with 4GB RAM and
128GB. The display without a notch is of course a clear advantage. However, it
is questionable how well the battery of the Elephone PX Pro performs in practice.
