In case you missed it, the MT6753 octa core and 3 GB RAM powered Umi ROME was making a lot of noise globally lately. Why? They're mocking the likes of UleFone, Elephone, Doogee and etc. as they're beating them in the price to specs war under USD 100.

Elephone was like: "Challenge Accepted"
Elephone - one of the main brands that they mocked, announced the Elephone M3 is now in the works which is probably the first smartphone in the world to rock the new Helio P10 octa core processor. A next gen type of chipset that's capable of having a faster LTE connection, Miravision 2.0 and the powerful Mali T680 GPU for graphics / gaming.
It also sports a USB Type C connection, a sweet rose gold looking all metal frame and will be pre installed with the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
The best part of this handset is of course the pricing as Elephone decided to retail this amazing handset for just USD 99 which is around 4.7K when directly converted to Philippine Peso.
Is this the one that can beat the Umi Rome? For me, it has the potential. But to truly make that happen they must add atleast 5.5 inch screen, 3 GB RAM and 3,000 mAh of battery they you're good to claim that distinction.
What do you think guys?
