Only yesterday did the reservations for Elephone R9 and S7 start, and the smartphones are receiving pretty good response from the customers. The company announced that on the first day itself, they had reserved more than 50,000 units. Both the smartphones come with a good set of specs but at a lesser price tag.
Elephone has made the deal even sweeter by saying that E-touch 2.0 system will be available on Elephone R9. This means it’s not a simple button but can double up as a capacitive button. Here’re some of the functions which the E-touch 2.0 on Elephone R9 can perform:
Gentle touch: back key
Double Gentle Touch / Press the Home button once: home key
Press the Home key twice: shortcut key
Long press on the home key: Recent taskbars
Besides the fingerprint recognition technology is integrated into it, which adds to the functionality of the home button. In addition to that, Elephone R9 uses a glass cover on the button, which not only adds feel to the phone but also helps quick identification of fingerprints.
The smartphone comes in a full-metal body and is equipped with deca-core Helio X20 chipset. The starting price of Elephone R9 is $139.99.
