We covered multiple smartphones from Elephone in the past and we really liked what the Elephone U3H had to offer for the price. Today we found out about a new device from the company, the Elephone E10, and even though it is a low-budget device, it offers a few features that are not usually found on such low priced devices. Before I reveal the price, let’s look at the specifications.
The Elephone E10 comes with a rather old Helio P22 chipset. It has 8 cores under the hood and packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Don’t expect this device to set any benchmark records, quite far from it, but it is still capable of light-weight gaming, video playback, social networking and web browsing without any problems. The device also comes with a quad-camera setup. The main sensor has 48MP and it is paired with a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro camera and a depth-sensing camera. Even for a mid-range device, the Elephone E10 camera setup is decent.
The 6.5″ screen has a waterdrop notch on the front that holds the 13MP selfie camera and HD+ resolution 720*1560. I know, the resolution is not that great, but I’ve seen (even recently actually) far more expensive devices that don’t hold much better at this chapter. One thing that really managed to catch my eye on the Elephone E10 is the connectivity options. You get the traditional dual-4G SIM slots, but you also get a dedicated microSD card slot. There is Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS and NFC. I think this is the cheapest smartphone to date that has NFC.
The Elephone E10 runs Android 10 and is powered by a 4000mAh battery that supports 10W fast charging. Now comes the cherry on top. The Elephone E10 will be sold for just $139.99 and during pre-sale events, the company will lower the price even more, at just $109.99. Now, I know that this is not the phone for everyone and that there are better smartphones out there, but at this price, it is worth buying it as a secondary device or for someone that is not tech-savvy and does not need more. Pre-sale starts on the 15th of April.
