Oukitel is creating a smartphone with unprecedented battery life
A lot of flagship smartphones try to strike a balance between thickness, weight, and battery size. Although many of them last ten or more hours, there is so much room for improvement in the area of battery life. Some smartphones have even larger batteries, like the Gionee Marathon M5, which packs a 6,020 mAh battery. This is pretty amazing when compared to most others that contain batteries half that size. Oukitel, Chinese company, is developing a phone that is said to last for days on one charge.
The smartphone in question is going to have a 10,000 mAh battery. This capacity is most often seen in bulky portable chargers for phones, and surprisingly, the images of the phone itself are impressive. While it may not be as thin as other flagship devices, the simple fact that they could cram a battery of that size into such a small package along with the other components is a great step in the right direction. The latest Oukitel phone is mostly a mystery for now, but according to the company, it will run Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The biggest issue for smartphone manufacturers as of late has been battery life. The iPhone 6 has a 1,810 mAh battery, and although it is an efficient device, it pales in comparison to Oukitel's latest. While many of the biggest companies have been pouring money and research into this aspect, there have been no major advances as of late. Hopefully with phones like Oukitel's and the Marathon M5, we will start to see some long-awaited improvement in this area.
