    See post 21 for the latest P8000B Update

    Back in April, @wicked, scooped the media with the Elephone P7000 announcement.

    Elephone P7000 - High end spec'd flagship for a fraction of the cost

    In fact, I ordered one [just shipped yesterday] just to see what it's all about. To date, Elephone has not delivered all the P7000 orders. My source at Elephone said "we never expected the amount of orders we received. We have our factories working overtime to meet the demand".
    Now that they are catching up on P7000 orders, Elephone has announced the P8000, which will go on sale next week June15th at $209.99.

    The P8000 will have a whopping 4165 mAh battery, FHD display and Android 5.1.

    The specs include:
    • MediaTek MTK6753 Octa Core SoC
    • 3GB of RAM
    • 16GB of storage (SD-card expandable to 128)
    • 5.5" 1080p FHD display
    • 4165 mAh battery
    • 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera
    • LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, etc.
    • Touch ID
    • 5V 2A Quick Charge
    The P8000 comes unlocked along with the Ele Root App. I am told that Ele Root will work on all Elephone variants.

    Cyanogenmod, Xiaomi's MIUI, Meizu's Flyme OS, Huawei's EMUI ROMS should be available to flash in the near future.

    Colors include Gold, Grey and White.

    Now here is the good part. Elephone is offing an ELECODE $40 discount coupon bringing the cost down to $169.99 for pre orders. Head over to www.elephone.hk to get yours on June 15th.

    You can check out the P8000 product page here.

    It's GSM and won't work on Verizon.

    And MetroPCS, i'd imagine any GSM Carrier so that would Leave out VZW & Sprint. Very Nice and for the money I wonder how it performs.

    I'm looking forward to your review.. if I remember correctly the LTE band for At&t was a concern for me whilst looking it over..

    Good stuff. Thanks @Jeffrey! I might just grab one to use permanently connected to my Pioneer head unit with Appradio Unchained Reloaded app!

    Interesting how the P7000 resembles an iPhone and the P8000 a G3.
