Yes, you read that right. Energizer, the company known for its batteries has launched a new smartphone, which on paper at least, actually looks like a pretty good device. Energizer has actually been producing phones for some time, or rather, the name has been used by manufacturer Avenir Telecom.
Coming from a battery specialist, it may come as no surprise to learn that the P600S has a mammoth 4,500mAh battery which claims to last up to 16 days in standby mode, or a full 12 hours with constant use.
Dominating the front of the phone is a 5.99-inch full HD display with 18:9 aspect ratio that curves around to the edges, in a similar fashion to the Infinity display of the Galaxy S8, while around the back is a dual-lens camera with 13- and 5-megapixel sensors. An 8-megapixel camera can be found on the front.
Under the hood is a 2.5GHz MediaTek octa-core processor that’s coupled to either 3GB/32GB or 6GB/64GB depending on which model you choose. The P600S can also accept either two SIM cards, or a SIM card and a microSD card up to 256GB to expand the storage and sports a fingerprint sensor on the back.
The Energizer P600S will be available in two colours: black, with the 3GB/32GB combination, or blue with the 6GB/64GB combination.
Pricing and full availability information is yet to be confirmed.
