Elephone ELE Watch To Use A MediaTek Processor, Could Be Priced At $115
The Elephone ELE Watch has been quite a heated topic these last few weeks, not only because it looks stunning, but because it will be the first Android Wear device manufactured in and made for the market in China. The processor has been a particle point of concern since Qualcomm isn’t a very well known company in China and most Android Wear devices run atop the Snadragon 400 processor made by Qualcomm. Now a new listing for the ELE Watch suggests it will run on top of the MediaTek-made MT2601 system-on-chip (SoC), a processor built specifically for Android Wear. Unsurprisingly it puts out performance much like the Snapdragon 400 also putting out 1.2GHz.
Therefore, the other question is just how much the ELE Watch is going to cost? Generally when devices use MediaTek processors they cost less than other devices. This is reflected in the ELE Watch since at the moment, online retailer GearBest is listing the ELE Watch for just $114.63 which makes it quite a bit cheaper than the already extremely cheap ASUS ZenWatch 2. It’s likely that the ELE Watch will only be available in the Chinese market, but for that price we can only hope that is expanded to other markets.
