“Explosion-proof” Elephone S7 looks like the Honor 8

Elephone apparently wants to take advantage of Samsung’s misfortunes with the launch of the S7 — lots of shade sauce being slathered on, here.

In itself, the S7 definitely has some looks with it, as if an Honor 8 and a Galaxy S7 collided and made a new phone. Curved edge screen? Check. 15-step layering process? Check. Ten-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor? Check.

But beyond the typical spec brags that Elephone can bring, it has also proclaimed that it can “guarantee” that the S7’s battery will be safe. You know, unlike what Samsung can do for your Galaxy Note 7.

And if it isn’t — because, you know, stuff happens — in your case, just know that there’s an “explosion-proof membrane” inside the phone and an extra thermoplastic polyurethane shell to boot to contain any fumes from a busted battery.

So, what will the extra protection cost you? Not much. A version with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage is pre-selling for as low as $140 with configurations going up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There’s also a pretty green color available.
