Elephone has been on a streak of releasing new models. While the P6000 is certainly getting significant attention, it is back to the 32-bit architecture story with the P5000. This phone packs a lot in the aspect of sought-for features.
…5350mAH battery…able to keep the phone running for 4 days
The most significant of it all is the 5350mAH battery, which is said to be able to keep the phone running for 4 days. It will be powering a 5.0 inch 1080p IPS touchscreen, and an MT6592 chipset with CPU clocked at 1.7GHz.
RAM capacity is specced at 2GB, with 16GB for internal storage. The phone storage can be expanded with a microSD. The P5000 has dual sim capability, with network connectivity extending from GSM to WCDMA coverage.
…fast charging which can load up to 70% charge under an hour
The phone will be coming with Android 4.4 out of the box. Camera specs stand at a whopping 16MP for the primary rear camera and 8MP for the front-facing camera. Other features that come with the P5000 are the fingerprint scanner, NFC, OTG support, fast charging which can load up to 70% charge under an hour, and the capability to double as a power bank.
Of course, there have been other phones sporting huge batteries in the 5000mAH range. One with a similar spec set is the THL 5000. Although it carried 5000mAH capacity, the high specs such as the 1080p display unnecessarily sank a lot of juice, lessening the impact of the large battery. It is certainly interesting to see how the Elephone P5000 handles its own monster spec set, and if the 5350mAH battery can truly deliver on the 4-day claim.
The phone is expected to be released in January.
