When slim is not in: Energizer brings another massive phone to MWC

The phones have been growing for years, but they rarely grow. We may want a big screen for video and internet, but we still want a slim, easy-to-carry phone.

Energizer, the same company that makes batteries, did not receive this memo. At the MWC 2019 in Barcelona, ​​he introduced a new phone called the Power Max P18K Pop, with an impressive thickness of 18 mm (almost a quarter of an inch). For the sake of comparison, it's thicker than more than two Samsung Galaxy S10s.

But there is a good reason for this: the Power Max P18K Pop has an 18,000 mAh battery. Yes, you read correctly. It's even more generous than last year P16K Prowhich, according to Energizer, would last up to five days in normal use and up to 40 days on standby.

The P18K Pop is supposed to fully charge in eight hours and supports fast charging.

This Energizer battery powers a 6.2-inch display and a Mediatek Helio P70 processor. An interesting feature is the 2 megapixel dual selfie camera that appears out of the body of the phone. Other highlights: 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a microSD card slot. There is also a triple rear-facing camera (12 megapixels, 5 megapixels and 2 megapixels), Android Pie and a dual SIM slot.

Energizer also introduced a prototype dual-screen device called Power Max P8100S. Its promised features include a 48 megapixel camera, a 24 megapixel front camera, 256 GB of storage, 8 GB of RAM, a 10,000 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 855 processor.


The Power Max P8100S Dual Screen is a conceptual device for the moment.
