April 14 10:24 2016 Print This Article

Chinese brand Elephone has been making waves recently – particularly when they introduced the 4GB RAM toting P9000 to the world. Thankfully, the manufacturer decided to bring it to the Philippines – as well the large battery-toting P8000 and the budget oriented S1. Incidentally, all these phones are built with metal and feature fingerprint scanners. Not bad at all for the price – which go for PHP 3,999 (S1), PHP 7,799 (P8000), and PHP 11,499 (P9000). They’re definitely worth a closer look, so check out our quick video feature embedded above and the specs below!

The S1’s claim to fame is being an affordable Quad-Core smartphone built with a stylish metal+glass body and a fingerprint sensor. Not much to say about it except it looks great and its a looker.

Lastly we have the P9000 and its pure indulgence of 4GB RAM, near bezel less Full HD display, wireless charging, and the metal body + fingerprint scanning features of all the units above. The design alone though is something to behold, so we recommend checking out our unboxing video that’s coming up later today to see it more in action.

All three of these phones will be available starting April 18, 2016 at 12 noon on online retailer Lazada.com.ph. They won’t be available on retail stores for the foreseeable future, so be sure to check them out on Lazada on the 18th! Links to buy each phone are here: S1, P8000, P9000 !
