How do you deal with the grim realities of smartphone battery life? Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and slide the screen brightness down as low as it can go, all the while hoping for the best? Make sure you’ve always got a spare charging cable in your bag? Lug around an external battery pack to top things up throughout the day? All workable solutions, but each with their own tradeoffs. Is it so much to ask for a phone that simply has a ginormous battery, freeing you from worrying about all that crap? Salvation may be at hand, as Oukitel gets ready to launch the K10000 with an internal 10,000mAh battery.
That’s right: 10,000mAh. That spells three times the capacity of the Galaxy Note 4, and double the battery life of some of those models in the 5,000mAh range that previously seemed like they were pushing limits.
Granted, the rest of the Oukitel K10000’s specs aren’t nearly so attention-grabbing: we’re looking at a 5.5-inch 720p display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a quad-core MediaTek SoC, and a 13MP/5MP camera setup. But who will have time to wonder about performance when they’re going for four or five days between battery charges?
We still don’t have full release details for the Oukitel K10000, including important considerations like target markets and pricing. And while it’s also not yet confirmed, there’s a solid chance that the phone could arrive with full Google Play services. We’ll share more about the start of sales as that info arrives.
