Elephone S9 – Bezel-less AMOLED Beauty: Review, Specs and Price

Elephone S9: Review

Elephone S9 is a bezel-less beauty with 6-inch AMOLED screen and high-level specs and features. The device (aka Elephone U) is known as Elephone S9 in some countries and looks like a Galaxy S9 Plus clone.

Powered by a massive battery and a Snapdragon chip for fast performance. We actually unboxed the Elephone U smartphone when it was released in the begining of the year.

Design

Elephone S9

Covered with Aluminum Alloy and Glass as usual, it’s exactly the same as the Elephone U smartphone. Sporting dual vertical cameras at the top middle, with a fingerprint scanner underneath and a dual-LED flash by the side.

From our unboxing, we saw the glass back reflecting light beautifully in the most subtle way. The Elephone logo at the bottom corner also makes this device look as premium as possible. It’s available in Golden, Black, Blue and Granny Hair colors.
