Battery life is always a concern for most users, especially those who rely heavily on cellular data. And Chinese manufacturer THL might have an answer to that with the new THL 5000 smartphone which is packing a massive 5,000 mAh battery board. The company proudly claims that this is the first in the world to feature a battery this size. Surprisingly, despite featuring a battery this big, the THL 5000 has a relatively slender 8.9 mm body.
Other specs of the smartphone include a 5-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel Sony made camera, a quad core 1.7 GHz MediaTek chipset, 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 2GB of RAM and what appears to be Android 4.4 KitKat, although there’s no confirmation of this.
The smartphone relies on 3G HSPA or HSDPA+ (up to 42.2 Mbps) networks and lacks 4G LTE, which is a bit of a concern for interested customers in the U.S. The company will start selling the smartphone soon for approximately $299, which is decent considering the hardware on board. Although THL might not directly be involved in bringing the handset to global regions, we can be assured that third party retailers will start selling the smartphone soon.
