Next Month Will See The Launch Of Oukitel Smartphone With 15 Day Battery?

Oukitel is likely a company you’ve never heard of but if it launches a phone with a 15 day battery expect that to change quickly.

Smartphone battery life is a constant problem

There is little question that smartphone computing power improves with each passing week. Faster processors and more RAM seems to be the norm, but at the same time, strides with battery life just don’t get made that often. Battery life is one of the biggest selling points for new phones from iPhones to anything running Android. 15 hours would be lovely for most owners of those phones but 15 days is, quite frankly unheard of in the market.

That could all change as the Chinese-based Oukitel is promising that its K10000 smartphone will work for 10 to 15 days on a single charge. Now, surely you won’t be able to stream Netflix movies and other programming for 10 days straight but the new Android-powered K10000 is raising some eyebrows in the tech media.

Not surprisingly, the Oukitel K10000 battery is the key to its battery life

The battery in the K10000, fittingly, is a mega-sized 10,000 mAh batter that is a monster. But in addition to this “over-sized” battery is the presence of a number of components that can only be called mid-range and certainly not the cutting edge components used by Samsung, HTC, Apple and others especially in their flagship offerings.

The new smartphone from Oikitel is powered by a mere 1Ghz quad-core processor from MediaTek. The processor is paired with 2GB of supporting RAM. For a phone boasting the K10000’s battery life, it’s somewhat surprising that it boasts a 5.5-inch display. That said, its 720p resolution is not going to impress many who have enjoyed the newest version of the iPhone or Galaxy. Such is equally the case with two very average cameras that are built into the K10000. The front-facing camera is 2-megapixels while the rear camera has eight. The 16GBs of internal storage is augmented by microSD support and the phone is runs Android Lollipop.

Another surprise given its huge battery and large screen is the fact that the K10000 weighs less than an iPhone 6s Plus at 184 grams.

Pre-orders are being taken now

The Oukitel is a work horse but by no means is it a thoroughbred. Online retailer GearBest is taking orders for the K10000 for a very reasonable $239.99 unlocked without a contract. Orders will begin shipping on January 21, 2016.
