Oukitel, a Chinese smartphone maker, is set to announce a new smartphone called Oukitel K10000. The price and availability details of the smartphone are not yet known. The highlight of the handset is its massive battery capacity of 10000mAh.
While majority of the smartphone users carry a power bank with them in case the smartphone battery drains out due to heavy use, Oukitel has created a handset which alone features almost thrice the battery of Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The highlight of the Oukitel K10000 is its 10000mAh battery capacity, which is strides ahead from the current flagship high-end smartphones including Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Active, and also the battery-centric Gionee Marathon M5 smartphone, which comes with 6000mAh battery capacity. The battery life of the handset has not been mentioned as yet.
From the images grabbed by Neowin, the handset sports metal top, side and bottom build with dual speakers and USB connectivity at the bottom. Neowin also claims to have confirmed specifications from the company, and says the Oukitel K10000 will run Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box, and feature a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) resolution display. It is said to be powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC clubbed with 2GB RAM. The LTE-enabled smartphone comes with 16GB inbuilt storage, houses 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front facing camera onboard. The company is yet to launch the handset and reveal the full list of specifications in public.
For now, some of the smartphone with a large battery capacity are the Celkon Millennia Q5K Power and Gionee's Marathon M3 smartphone with 5000mAh battery, Lava Iris Fuel 20 with 4400mAh battery, Karbonn Alfa A120 with 3000mAh battery. Among the flagship models from popular smartphone makers, Samsung is leading the way with its Galaxy S6 Active, which is backed by a 3500mAh battery.
