Oukitel plans to launch a series of smartphones that put long battery life front and center. The company made headlines recently by teasing a smartphone with a 10,000 mAh battery. Now more details about that Oukitel K10000 smartphone are emerging… and it looks like the company plans to offer half a dozen other smartphones with big batteries.

The Oukitel K10000 will be one of the first. It’s a smartphone with a tablet-sized battery, a 5.5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, and a MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor.

Neowin has some photos of the phone, and while it’s certainly on the thick side for a modern smartphone, it looks surprisingly compact for a phone with an enormous battery.

Other features are said to include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera.

GizChina reports that Okutel also plans to launch 6 more phones with long battery life. Some models will have 6,000 mAh or larger batteries.

Other battery-centric features will include fast charging technology that lets you fully recharge the phone in 2-4 hours (which is kind of impressive when you consider how much battery there is), a special low-power mode that will offer up to 2.5 days of run time after the battery charge level drops to 5 percent, and support for “reverse charging” so that you can use your phone as a portable power bank to charge other devices through a USB connection.

These phones will available primarily in China, but they offer hope to those of us in the rest of the world waiting for device makers to produce smartphones that can run for more than a day on a charge.

  1. gawd awful ugly. but i like that they are going outside the box. i’m more interested in their other upcoming phones. their latest releases are really beautiful. now if only they’d work with US frequencies…
    I would definitely give up the thinness and “bezel less” trend and focus on much better battery life

  2. I have a better idea: Make the battery user replaceable! Nah, that would take away the built-in “planned obsolescence” so coveted by the greedy manufacturers.

  3. I have a Bluboo X550 (yeah stupid name) with the (supposedly) 5300 mAh battery that is actually 5000 mAh. Anyway, it has the MT6735P processor also and the battery life is simply amazing. Nothing else about the phone is, but I really do only charge my phone at most every other day, usually less often.
    If this actually has a 10000 mAh battery (which I doubt) then you’re looking at something like 30+ hours of screen on time and probably all week battery life for someone like me that uses the phone for an hour or so each day.

  4. make any current smartphone double it’s width and it can have a that large battery too.
    I always wondered why nobody sold something like that and hoped, around the time motorola released it’s “maxx”-devices we would see something like that soon. Did take a lot longer than i thought and still not from a major vendor, but still… nice 🙂

  5. It’s about time somebody did this. Thin is nice and all, but phones are getting fragile from the excessive thinness already. Put that dimension to good use with more battery capacity!

  6. Dream phone! Love the design. Looks like an alienware or asus g751 gaming laptop.
