Android smartphone with 5000mAh battery to launch in the Far East
As fast and feature-rich today's smartphones may be, few of them will ever last through more than a day of heavy usage. That's because while screen, camera, and processor technologies have been advancing rapidly, little progress has been made in increasing the capacity of our handsets' batteries. Motorola's MAXX models have always been an exception, with the latest member of the team known as the Motorola DROID MAXX packing a massive, 3500mAh battery, but a little-known company in China may have something even more impressive coming off the assembly line.

The rest of its hardware specs aren't that bad either. The Z9 comes with a 5.5-inch, 720p display, a quad-core MediaTek SoC running at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8MP main camera, and Android 4.2 out of the box. Pricing is not known at this time, but handsets bearing Chinese brands are often quite affordable and the Changhong Z9 will probably be no exception. Too bad that seeing this handset launch anywhere outside of China is very unlikely.
