Bluboo X550 to launch next month carrying a massive 5300mAh battery

Bluboo X550 to launch next month carrying a massive 5300mAh battery
If a long battery life is one of the features you crave when looking for a new smartphone, you might want to pray to the phone gods that the Bluboo X550 will be available in your region of the world. This handset carries with it a rather hefty 5300mAh battery. That will tie the Bluboo X550 with the Philips W6618. The batteries on both models are just 50mAh smaller than the 5350mAh cell shoe-horned into the Elephone P5000.

Most of the specs are unknown at this point, although the device is powered by the 64-bit quad-core MediaTek MT6735 CPU. The phone supports 4G LTE connectivity and will have Android 5.0 pre-installed. The Bluboo X550 will be available in black and white, and the bezels on the device are thinner than average. Even with the huge battery, the phone will have a power saving mode to squeeze out the last drop of available power.

The manufacturer, Shenzhen Huihua Exploit Technology Co., will be holding an event between April 18th-21st to launch the device. Pricing has yet to be disclosed.

Thanks for the tip!

I would sure buy a smartphone from a manufacturer with the name "Exploit Technology, Co."

This is a battery with a phone attached, not a phone with a battery attached.

Hmmmm, sacrificing functionality for a big-ass battery, May I say,"Bravo Bluboo".

I thought the idea was to go smaller battery or alt power source for communication and future other alternate applications?

why don't manufacturers put multiple battery cells in smartphones for faster charging without causing faster battery degradation? batteries nowadays are not that big while phones have gotten bigger. two rectangular 1500 mah batteries charged together will mean faster charging (with a special charger that delivers simultanous two 4.5v/5v power to two cells) and less risks.

For one thing, you'll lose capacity in the space it takes for extra packaging; you'd have significantly more than 2x the capacity in a single batter than 2 smaller ones. For another, a larger battery will have lower internal resistance, which means it's more efficient, and thus have better life; a 3000mAh batter will give more than twice the life of 2x1500mAh. It also makes it more durable over time. The fact that you'd be recharging it less also gives it a longer lifespan over time.

Compelling device, unfortunately I know nothing of the brand and that's an immediate turn off for me.

" That will tie the Bluboo X550 with the Philips W6618 for the largest battery shoe-horned into a handset." The Elephone P5000 Technically is bigger with a 5350mah battery, Innos D10 supposedly will have 6000mah, and the Highscreen Boost 2 SE has a 6000mah version as well.

Thanks for the heads-up. An Elephone never forgets. Regards, Alan F.

When will we get a flagship device with this capacity of battery? The THL 5000, Marathon M3, and Studio Energy are all mid-range phones. I'd love to see this in a top-tier phone.

I want a flagship from a major company with that battery AND WITHOUT a stupid QHD screen! (Looking at you Droid Maxx)

I hear you bro, I want a 5000+ mAh battery, 5.5" screen (720p or 1080p max), at least 3GB RAM, and a top tier processor, that is virtually imposible to find right now.

Yup. You gonna need that large battery capacity if you're gonna use a SD 810 or a Mediatek chip.

Why? Meizu M1 Note has "normal" battery capacity and battery life is excelent
