Oukitel K10000 smartphone crams in 10,000 mAh battery

One of the most important things in a smartphone for many people is how long the battery lasts. A device that only gets you through half a day of use won't cut it for most of us. A Chinese company called Oukitel has announced a new smartphone called the Oukitel K10000 and it should have enough power for anyone.

The battery inside this smartphone packs 10,000 mAh of juice. Not only will the smartphone use all that power to keep itself running all day, it also supports reverse charging meaning you can use the smartphone's massive battery to charge other gadgets on the go.

The company claims that the battery is large enough to charge your iPhone 6s fully three times. It almost sounds like a battery pack that can make calls in a pinch rather than a smartphone. The display is a 5.5-inch 720 x 1280 pixel unit and the processor is a 1GHz MediaTek MT6735 SoC paired with 2GB of RAM.

Integrated storage is 16GB and that can be expanded with microSD cards up to 32GB in capacity and it runs Android 5.1. The rear camera is an 8MP unit with a 2MP front camera. The phone also has support for LTE, GPRS, EDGE GPS, A-GPS, 3G, Bluetooth, and WiFi. Pricing is set at $239.99 with a special introductory price at $199.99 and pre-ordering is underway now.
