Energizer, a company not known to most of us, has launched a new smartphone at the MWC 2019. Now, this smartphone would have mostly been ignored if it was just another Android phone. However, the company has done something extraordinary with this one.
Energizer has bundled an 18,000 mAh battery on this smartphone. Now, the media at the MWC 2019 have been reporting this as a battery pack having a screen and cameras. This is because we have not seen a smartphone have more than 5000 mAh battery till now.
However, we must tell you that this is a full-fledged Android smartphone. The Energizer P18K, named appropriately because of its 18k battery, runs on Android 9.0 Pie. This means that the smartphone runs on the latest version of Android currently available.
But due to its 18000 mAh battery, it is enormous in terms of thickness. This smartphone has 18mm of thickness, according to the company’s official spec sheet. Compare this to an average smartphone’s thickness of 6mm launched in 2018.
Yes, the smartphone also feels terribly thick when placed alongside a normal smartphone. However, the advantage of having such a big battery is obvious. You do not have to charge this smartphone for days or even weeks at stretch. Avenir Telecom, the company behind Energizer P18k, has mentioned that this phone can last up to 2 days when watching videos on a single charge and up to 50 days on the standby mode.
On the downside, you will most definitely have to put the phone for an entire day to charge. Considering its massive battery which should take time to charge as it does not have fast charging support. You also get a 6.2-inch display, 6GB RAM, 128Gb internal storage and a MediaTek SoC on this phone though. There is a pop-up selfie camera having dual sensors and three cameras are fitted on the back of this device.
