China Authorises production of 10,000mah Gionee Phone
TENAA certifies Gionee Phone with the battery capacity of a power bank
China’s TENAA has certified a Gionee phone with a massive 10000mAh battery capacity.
To put that into perspective, that’s over twice the battery capacity of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, a device widely praised for its multi-day battery life.
The phone appears on the agency’s database as the “Gionee 20,200,418” and it has a 5.72-inch HD+ (720 x 1440) display.
Since Gionee’s return last year, the manufacturer has announced a couple of phones, a handful of power banks and earphones, and even a few smartwatches. Now, it seems set to launch a phone with really large battery capacity, one that may not require owners to purchase Gionee’s own power banks.
There is a 2.0GHz octa-core processor under the hood and the phone will be available in 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB RAM variants with 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB of expandable storage. It has a single rear camera which is listed as a 13MP or 16MP sensor while the selfie camera is listed as a 2MP or 8MP sensor. You will also get a fingerprint scanner underneath the rear camera.
Other than the unusually large battery and the model number, another surprising detail about the phone is the Android version it is running. According to TENAA, the Gionee phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
It isn’t much of a surprise seeing as the Gionee K6 announced back in May runs the same version of Android. Nevertheless, it is disappointing.
The device will be available in black and blue. Its weight is 305 grams and it measures 160.6 x 75.8 x 8.4 millimeters. With respect to its design, the Gionee phone has the looks of a rugged phone. It has a metal frame with rivets on the side and it skips on glass or glasstic for a strong polycarbonate body.
If you are on the search for a phone with an insanely big battery, you should keep your eyes peeled for this Gionee phone when it eventually launches.
