The Elephone P5000 features the largest battery you've ever seen in a smartphone

The Elephone P5000 features the largest battery you've ever seen in a smartphone
Elephone is not one of China’s well-known smartphone makers, but this didn’t stop the company from announcing a unique handset called Elephone P5000. Far from being unique when it comes to design (it looks too much like a Samsung Galaxy), the Elephone P5000 is special because it packs a 5350 mAh battery - the largest ever included in a smartphone. The previous unofficial record in this regard was set by the Philips W6618 and its 5300 mAh battery.

According to Elephone, the 5350 mAh battery can provide a usage time of up to 4 days. The battery has a fast charging mode (going up to 70% in one hour), and can be used to transfer power to other smartphones and devices. 

Despite the fact that it packs such a huge battery, the P5000 is relatively thin, measuring 144 x 71 x 9.3 mm. The handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and can be considered a typical high-end Chinese smartphone. Its features include a 5-inch 1080p display, fingerprint scanner, NFC, an 8 MP front-facing camera, 16 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory. The phone is powered by an octa-core 1.7 GHz MediaTek MT6592 processor.

Elephone expects to launch the P5000 in January 2015, for a price that hasn’t been announced. International orders will likely be available. Interested?
