Elephone Launch The Vowney – Amazing Specs, Odd Name

When I first got my hands on an Elephone Vowney at their headquarters in Shenzhen I was over-joyed and yet ambivalent, the phone was incredibly responsive, the specs were impressive, what let it down was a small niggle, the design feels premium with a sturdy body but the gold finish on the unit I handled was quite garish. The other colours available are seen in the video below however we have yet to see any other than the gold on pre-order pages. There is also a “lite” version, which forgoes some of the flagship specs for a $60 drop in price.

The primary selling point Elephone are pushing with the Vowney is the 5.5″ 2K display, with a resolution of 2560*1440 (535 PPI). Backing the display up is an impressive 4000 mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and an equally high-end MediaTek 6795 processor, an excellent choice considering the issues plaguing the obvious alternative. The camera sensor is the Sony IMX230, with a 21MP rear camera and an 8MP camera at the front. The camera also supports 4K recording and slow motion video at 120 fps.

Whilst the storage itself is not incredible the inclusion of the SD card support is a welcome addition. Another key feature that is left out of many Chinese flagships is LTE, the Vowney supports the following bands

  • FDD-LTE:band 1/3/7/20 (800/1800/2100/2600)
  • TDD-LTE:band 40 (2300)
  • WCDMA:band 1 /8(1900/2100)
  • GSM:band 2/3/5/8 (850/900/1800/1900)

What do you think? Is this potentially a flagship killer? Leave a comment below!
