The colors may be new, but the design is all too familiar. The smartphone will use MediaTek SoCs to reach more affordable prices.

Elephone isn't exactly a household name and is more uncommon than its Chinese competitors like Huawei, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Vivo, Oppo, and ZTE outside of its home region. The company offers budget smartphones like the clunky P8000 and P9000 with arguably unattractive designs, but this is now changing with new models like the Elephone S3 and its high screen-to-body ratio that is reminiscent to the ZTE Nubia Z11.

To celebrate its 10th year anniversary, Elephone has announced on its Facebook page the Elephone S7 that is very much a rip-off of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Prices will range from as low as 90 Euros up to 170 Euros depending on the SKU with MediaTek SoC options instead of the flagship Exynos 8890 as found on the latest Galaxy S7 series. Elephone has not released any other details on the smartphone such as its display resolution, RAM, camera, and other core details. It remains to be seen if the company can deliver on the technical side as as well as it will from a visual perspective. Inexpensive smartphones have a tendency to run slowly and with lower resolution panels than mainstream offerings.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
