A new flagship smartphone from a Chinese company will soon launch loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop while a dual-boot variant is expected to arrive in June. According to BetaNews, Elephone officials confirmed the rumors about this upcoming 5.5-inch smartphone that appeared on Chinese portal GizChina.

The new Elephone handset promises to become the first Windows Phone smartphone with a 2K display. The 5.5-inch device will also pack a massive 4 GB of memory, Touch ID fingerprint security, a back camera with a 21 MP Sony IMX 230 sensor (Android variant) or 20.7 MP (dual-boot variant). The two versions will also have different processors - 64-bit MediaTek chip for the Android variant and a quad-core Intel SoC for the dual-boot one.

Slideshows obtained by Neowin also reveal that both handsets will have a powerful battery capable to provide more than 3800 mAh. Since Elephone confirmed the initial rumors, it is only a matter of time until we find out more about the remaining specs, price, as well as the international availability of their upcoming flagship.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
