A recently launched Android smartphone is equipped with a 10,000 mAh battery, which allows it to run continuously, for as long as 15 days, its creators have announced.
The incredible device is called Oukitel K10000, and its battery capacity is approximately 10 times higher than that pertaining to an iPhone 6s.
Basically, as its Chinese developers claim, when the cell phone is used regularly, under normal conditions, it can function for around 10 to 15 days, on one single charge, and can even assist in powering other devices, through USB OTG.
The full metal body device whose operating system is Android 5.1 (Lollipop) has a Mediatek MT6735 64-bit quad-core processor (1.0 Ghz), and 2 GB RAM.
Its ROM is of 16 GB, while its expandable memory is of 32 GB, through a TF (Micro SD) slot. The handset, which weighs around 184 grams, also has a relatively large screen size (5.5 inch), with a 1280 x 720 HD IPS resolution, and is equipped with 2 cameras: a front-facing one with 2 megapixels, and a rear one that’s 8 megapixels.
Oukitel K10000 is a dual SIM phablet, allowing the user to combine two carrier plans or service providers on the same device, and its other features include GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Gesture and Gravity Sensing, 3G and 4G LTE.
Experts remain skeptical however regarding the mind-blowing technical specifications related to battery life, especially given the fact that most smartphones nowadays can only function for a day or two before needing to be connected to a power source.
The fact that inventors have mentioned a 5-day gap when referring to the device’s predicted battery life appears like a red flag to some, and makes them doubtful that Oukitel K10000 is indeed capable of ever reaching the 15-day mark.
In addition, even the claim that the phone can run uninterruptedly for 10 days is being called into question by some. As they exemplify, Sony Xperia Z5 is powered by a 2,900 mAh battery, which allows it to run for approximately 2 days.
Therefore, this would mean that Oukitel’s latest device would be at risk of shutting down after approximately 6 days, and never actually survive longer than that.
It must be said that it’s not the first time that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has issued rather extravagant statements regarding its products.
For instance, it previously released a K4000 smartphone, with a 4,000 mAh battery, which allegedly can run for a maximum of 7 days in one charge only.
What’s even more astonishing however is that its developers have said that the device’s Corning Gorilla Glass can survive unscathed after being trampled by a car and can break over 600 walnuts until it shatters.
Those who are interested in buying the latest Oukitel K1000 after all must know that the handset comes with the price tag of $239.99, and can be pre-ordered now, shipping having been scheduled to begin on January 21, 2016.
