Doogee's HomTom smartphone will have a huge battery
As smartphones become increasingly more powerful and feature-packed, the biggest drawback continues to be the limited battery size. It is quite difficult to fit a large battery in smartphones today, as they are becoming slimmer and lighter, but Doogee, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, wants to change that. The newest smartphone from the company will feature a 6,250 mAh battery, and this is more than twice the size of many smartphone battery capacities seen today.
According to a leak, the device will reportedly have a 5.5 inch HD display and the MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor. 4G LTE is supported by the HomTom as well. Information about the RAM has not yet been released. In terms of picture-taking, the main camera will be rear-facing and 13MP and includes dual flash. The front-facing camera will be 5MP. Storage for apps and photos will be 16GB and expandable, and amazingly, the device will supposedly be only 9.9mm thick. Considering the size of the battery, if the HomTom is truly this slim, it will be quite an achievement.
The last notable detail from the supposed leak is the inclusion of MediaTek Pump Express Plus charging, which could charge the device up to 75% in under ten minutes. The final frontier for smartphones seems to be battery capacity, as manufacturers are investing huge amounts of money into research for more compact and faster charging solutions. If these specs turn out to be true, hopefully the Doogee HomTom will push even more phone makers to create longer lasting devices.
