Elephone launches dual-boot smartphone that can run both Windows 10 Mobile and Android


While BlackBerry users debate the possibilities (or not) of a dual-boot smartphone, Chinese manufacturer Elephone has launched a dual-boot smartphone that can run both Windows 10 Mobile and Android.

There will be two versions, a high end and a Lite variant.

The real differences between the handset will be the screens and the Ram and Rom configurations.

Elephone Vowney features a 5.5-inch QHD IPS LCD display offering a screen resolution of 1440×2560 pixels and a pixel density of 535ppi.


Elephone Vowney is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6795 processor clocked at 2.2GHz coupled with 3GB of RAM. The handset comes with 64GB of inbuilt storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 64GB).

The camera is a 20.7-megapixel rear camera with Sony Exmor IMX230 sensor. The rear camera features autofocus and supports 4K video recording. There is a dual-LED flash accompanying the rear camera. An 8-megapixel front camera is also on board.

Keeping the lights on is 4200mAh removable battery and also features a fingerprint scanner on the back panel.

Connectivity options include 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB. It will be available in Black and White colors.

The Elephone Vowney is a dual sim device, taking two micro sims.

Elephone Vowney is currently available to pre-order starting Thursday and will go on sale on September 30., priced at $299.
