Elephone S7 Limited Edition with Helio X25 SoC on sale for the Holidays
Chinese manufacturer Elephone officially introduced its Elephone S7 in November and, perhaps unsurprisingly, the design is modeled to look similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge. While the original model launched with the MediaTek Helio X20 SoC, a newer Limited Edition SKU is coming with the slightly faster MediaTek Helio X25 SoC. Online retailer Gearbest will be offering the Elephone S7 Limited Edition in limited quantities for a price of $250 USD or just a few USD more than the original Elephone S7.
Multiple SKUs will be made available in multiple colors each with the Helio X25 SoC. The least expensive SKU will ship with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage while the pricier SKU will have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
As with most smartphones imported from China, buyers in the U.S. should be aware that the Elephone S7 may not support the proper LTE bands. It does, however, support LTE band 20 to be compatible with a handful of cellular networks across Europe.
The manufacturer also recently announced a 6-inch phablet with dual rear cameras for launch sometime next year.
