Smartphone with largest battery coming from China: a 4.5-inch handset with whopping 5000mAh battery

A smartphone nowadays might have it all - access to the web, vibrant and fairly large display, good camera, amazing processing power, but one area where you don’t have such varieties is battery. Heavy and even moderate users will struggle to get more than one to two days out of their shiny new smartphone.

Now, though, it seems that China of all places has listened to people’s discontent with short battery lives and is ready to make a 4.5-inch phone with a whopping 5000mAh battery. The Shenzhen-based company Ding Xuan seems to be preparing the device that should become the one with largest battery ever. The Samsung Galaxy S4 in comparison has a 2600mAh battery. That is considered large nowadays and still pales in comparison to this upcoming handset.

What’s great is that judging from the leaked picture above the device is not terribly thick. There are no exact details on it, though. Technical details like the silicon inside it, the camera or the version of Android it runs on are not yet clear. The design does look clean, a bit businessy in the looks.

How do you like the prospect of having a truly long-lasting smartphone like this? Would you buy it even if it’s from an unknown Chinese phone maker?

I would love the see the big explosion when someone replace this battery with an chinese aftermarket battery...Unless this is already an aftermarket one.

That's why buying a phone from a known manufacturer is safer, for example : Huawei, ZTE, Oppo etc.

Yeah most of these dodgy Chinese brands are too good to be true, it is probably built badly. ZTE/Huawei FTW!

I would like to see the entire phone...bottom end is probably as wide as a tablet! Battery technology is not that advance I dont think. I wish it were...

But, it's made in China. Will it explode? Everything made in China explodes, except their bombs. Oh, im not making this up, i have read dozens of news which even things like an office chair explodes in china (some defect in the liquid/gas hydraulic mechanism in the adjustable office chair).

Simply put, all models should have a large battery option, 8mm thick for those who don't mind charging but mind the size, 10mm for those who mind battery life, an S4-sized phone could feature a 4000mAh battery at that thickness. What I don't understand is why don't they unify back cover and battery. Right now phones have a back panel, a battery bed and the battery obviously in it's own casing. If the back panel would be the battery casing and the battery itself, a simple click under the camera/speaker/nfc would put it together and some of the unnecessary stuff would be cut off. A slim large back cover battery could have 3400mAh while keeping the S4 at it's current size.

That's a "feature" that all the mobile phones had in the early days, but they were made of raw (yet indestructible) plastic, I guess now it would me a bit more complicated. By the way the market is unfortunately going towards the unibody design to save thickness and preserve big batteries.

I will buy it if it is a Huawei, not Ding Xuan (unknown manufacturer). But 5000 mAH is just superb!

i just hope it won't be the same as other chinese phones that have high batt capacities based on specs but don't have the corresponding actual performance. e.g. lenovo phones that have supposedly larger batteries but end up draining more quickly than the smaller batts in samsung, htc, and sony devices.

I wish more OEMs would make phones that have big batteries (3500+ mah) and sacrifice thinness a little. I don't mind ~10mm if it means a huge battery

Just make sure your wearing all necessary PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) before use such as Safety Glasses, Hard Hat, Respirator, and Fire Suit. With China's QA policies at play and a battery that size, we are bound to hear some disastrous events! LOL!!

Seriouslt these other companies should write or take notes from the chinese company at least they care bout their consumers. N dats one huge a$$ battery!!!

That is the versatility of Samsung design. They can make a 5000 mah battery pack if they really wanted to for those that do not mind the size.

Funny how I got thumbs down for my comment because it is true. Samsung released fat a$$ extended batter packs for both the GS2 and Galaxy Nexus. Personally I would never by them because I want my large phones to be as compact as possible as long as it lasts a day and half with moderate use. However, a Samsung flagship with an extended battery pack was pretty much the equivalent of a Samsung Galaxy MAXX. I don't know how you can really argue that.

it's not the size, it's how you use it.

If you're gonna have a phone with that huge of a battery don't buy it from an obscure brand. Stick with known names that implement strict safety policies... 5000mAh in a 4.5 inch phone made by a no-name chinese company is like putting a dynamite next to your crotch. Don't take the chance and wait for a Motorola Super-Duper-Ultra-MAXXXX phone.

NO WAY, no Chinese phone! Overall specs always lag far behind the big players, not to mention (update)support! I'm perfectly happy with my Galaxy Note2. No battery problems what so ever, recent hardware specs and very good support:) (I've got the international version whitout any carrier bloatware on it)

Samsung and Apple are going to get that much battery (probably) in 2020 :-s

Hopefully more phones will start shipping with batteries 3000mah and larger.

Its time the mobile industries focus on providing bigger battries! The hardware and software are great, learn from MOTO,,,!
