This smartphone has a massive 10,900 mAh battery!
One of the features we modern smartphone lovers crave the most right now is long and reliable battery life. For the past few years, manufacturers have gotten performance, camera, and displays down pretty well, but the race for thinning out devices has taken its toll on battery life. Currently, a regular smartphone with a display around 5 inches and proportions like the Galaxy S7 will have a juice box with a capacity of about 3,000 mAh. And sure, phone makers and software developers have managed to optimize energy usage immensely bu developing power-efficient hardware and not-so-power-hungry software, but there's still room for improvement.

Some manufacturers get that there are users out there that would rather carry a brick of a device that has a massive power bank in its trunk than a thin phone that can't last 5 hours of heavy usage. These are few and far in-between, but the resulting devices are usually worth a mention, if only for the "interesting facts" aspect of it.

So, we present to you the YAAO 6000 — a smartphone that will likely only be sold in China. What's so special about it, you may ask? Well, it has a whooping 10,900 mAh battery — that's around the capacity of a fairly large external powerbank! And, in all honesty, it doesn't look painfully thick, at least not on the promotional renders (no real photos available, sorry).

In terms of hardware, the handset is not really a jaw-dropper — it has a MediaTek MT6735 quad-core SoC, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of extendable memory, a 5.5-inch, 720 x 1280 TFT display, and a camera combo of 13 MP / 5 MP. Interestingly enough, the battery is also removable, presumably allowing users to swap it for a charged spare, in case the 10,900 mAh is not enough.

The phone is up for a fire pre-sale on website Jingdong for about $220. We wouldn't expect it to cross over to Western markets unless a company like Blu or Vivo picks it up, rebrands, and sells it here.

I won't comment on the design. But for the love of God! Why all smartphones with really big batteries have to have low end specs?! Can't we get a good and long lasting performer? Sigh...

Cause high end phones need to look nice and slim to have an excuse for their overpriced prices. At least thats what I understand from it.

If you don't care what the phone looks like then why don't you just throw it in a mophie or zerolemon case and be done with it?

No! That precious .0006mm thinness advantage is more important. Especially after I slap that Lifeproof monster fatty case on it because it's so fragile. I actually like this design. Love love love that gigantic battery. Don't know, but it looks ruggedized too. Would love to have a Note with that thickness, monster 2-day cell, and durability.

Go for Samsung Galaxy A9 PRO (of course if its available in your country or can import it there). It comes with 6" FHD AMOLED screen, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage + micro SD (NOT hybrid), 4G LTE, Dual Sim, 16MPx camera with OIS and FINALLY 5000mAh battery...

Only $220? At first glance at the thumbnail I thought this was a luxury phone like vertu. It really looks like an expensive handset

I'm pretty sure it's a stolen luxury phone design but with a huge hump on the back.

It looks absolutely nice and expensive and can fool anybody that you are using a luxury phone

That TFT display and mediatek processor will insure that it doesn't last longer than regular 3000 mAh phones.

it's IPS TFT LCD, just like all those IPS used on other low-end devices... and that mediatek use quad-core cortex-A53, so it will be as power efficient as SD410 (probably even lower since it has lower clock speed)... btw, this phone is just oukitel K10000 with slightly cosmetic change

Big battery in a s**t phone, what a story.

Calm down. It's Italian. Like the cars, you better take what you can before it breaks down.

With such low specs the phone can last a week without charging

With such pathetic specs, only 1GB RAM, you might as well just buy a feature phone, you won't be able to do much else with it other than make phone calls.

Such poor specs (and brand) for a great battery. I learnt my lesson after buying the Oukitel K10000, it may have a monster of a battery but daily performance suffers with low end specs... not to mention the terrible camera.

Overall, I kind of like the design. A menu button? What is this, 2012?

Did Lamborghini gave them licenses?

What about exact dimensions & weight? (though won't consider it with 1GB Ram, low end processor & low resolution TFT in 2016/2017)

This is a battery pack that has a smartphone feature in it. So silly.. Who is still putting 1 GB RAM in his devices?????

If this is a CDMA phone that works on Perfectum of Uzbekistan, like Sprint and Verizon of the US, then it's Okay, otherwise, not. Because, there's Oukitel K10000 with 10000 mAh battery, but it's only GSM based phone. In addition, YAAO 6000 has a REMOVABLE battery!! It has a non-conventional design!!
