While big tech companies are trying to put 4000 mAh batteries in their latest smartphones, an obscure brand named Oukitel is preparing a model packed with some 10,000 mAh battery. That’s more than twice than the large battery already found in the Lenovo P70, Acer Liquid X2, or the ASUS ZenFone 2 4GB RAM, and the Cyanogen-powered ZUK Z1 with its 4xxx mAh battery. And oh, who could forget the Gionee Marathon M3 boasting a 5,000 mAh battery.
Oukitel is a new Chinese smartphone brand that’s been trying to enter the mobile market the past year. The Oukitel K10000 is a follow up to the Oukitel U9 which was also recently announced. The K10000 is an attention grabber because of the huge battery capacity you don’t usually find in smartphones.
No official announcement has been made yet by the new company but we learned this phone would run Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box already. So far, we know it will have a 5.5-inch display screen and a metal body plus the following specs: 16GB built-in storage, 2GB RAM, 5MP front camera, 13MP rear camera, quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC, and a 720p resolution.
Neowin was able to share some photos of what’s believed to be the Oukitel K10000. The images tell us this new Oukitel Android phone could be ready for rough use and for an extended period of time. The battery alone is impressive as it could probably give five days worth of standard mobile phone usage.
