A couple of months ago, we reported that the Elephone P9000 might be the very first smartphone to pack the MediaTek MT6797 chipset. It is a Helio X20 SoC that has the deca-core processor. At that time, we told you the mobile might be launched in the last quarter of this year. Now, the Elephone P9000 has officially been listed on an e-commerce website, where it’s available for pre-orders. And, sure enough, the device does carry the MT6797 SoC!

As stated by Geekbuying, the website where the phone is up for orders, the Elephone P9000 features a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS screen with a 401 ppi pixel density. It is supported by 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, and the MediaTek MT6797 chipset with the 2.0GHz deca-core processor and the Mali-T880-MP4 GPU.

Along with 32GB of expandable storage, the P9000 offers a 16MP/13MP camera as well as a fingerprint sensor. It will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, though it might be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow at a later stage, considering the fact that it is a flagship phone. The phone runs on a 3,100 mAh battery.

The Elephone P9000 is priced at $329.99 for the pre-orders. Unfortunately, the retailer has not yet mention any expected shipping date.
