Elephone combines OPPO Find X, Huawei P20 Pro and vivo NEX S into… this

By Jules Wang September 5, 2018, 3:26 pm

Small-cap Chinese phone manufacturer Elephone is back in the limelight for 15 seconds thanks to a new device that takes heavy inspiration from… well, not Apple or even Samsung, but a lot of established domestic competition.

As Weibo tech analyst Ice Universe posted on Twitter:

The Elephone U2 takes the vivo NEX S’s top-mounted pop-up section to bring dual selfie cameras, but opts to keep three rear cameras, much like the Huawei P20 Pro‘s, exposed. All of this gets wound up in an industrial design very similar to the OPPO Find X, replete with an inward curve on the top edge of the rear side. It doesn’t look like the U2 has adopted the motorized inset that the Find X has for its time-of-flight camera system.


Elephone has not officially launched the U2 yet and is signing customers up to be notified on when it’s available for purchase. We do know that it has a 6.26-inch display and Android 9 Pie.

Believe it or not, this is not the company’s first phone with a pop-up camera as the PX was also promoted at some previous stage.

Update: This article has been updated to clarify difference of scale between Elephone and its domestic competition.
