Chinese manufacturer’s new phone has a 10,000mAh battery!
The last decade has seen an exponential increase in processing power, while battery life has more or less remained the same. With no new battery technologies ready to reach consumers, the only option is to increase the battery capacity, and Outkitel, a Chinese manufacturer is doing just that.
Reports state that Outkitel is working on a phone with a 10,000mAh battery, and this phone is supposed to last for a whole week on a single charge. At a time when smartphones barely make it through the day, this seems like a step in the right direction. Of course, this also means that your smartphone will be bulkier, but we would prefer a longer lasting phone over a slimmer one any day. Once it’s out, Outkitel’s smartphone may race past our current battery champion, the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, which sports a comparatively diminutive 4000mAh battery.
Images of this smartphone have leaked recently, and it seems that the smartphone will run on Android 5.1. According to the reports, the smartphone is just a prototype right now, but it may make its way to the market soon.
Of course, Outkitel is a manufacturer that you probably have not heard about, since it sells smartphones only in China. We hope that its latest smartphone is the start of a larger trend, sacrificing slimness for larger batteries.
