Manufacturers sticking big batteries in smartphones is nothing new. But to achieve battery capacities in excess of 4000mAh, manufacturers usually have to make their smartphones a little big around the waist. Apparently Chinese manufacturer Doogee has found a way to stuff a massive, 6,250mAh battery in a phone without sacrificing overall thinness with the HomTom.
HomTom is apparently Doogee’s sub-brand that’s devoted to providing customers with phones that have massive batteries with thin profiles, and it seems that the company has achieved what they set out to do with their first device. While the HomTom has a 6,250mAh battery, it has an overall thickness of just 9.9mm, not at all unreasonable considering what it has. In fact, the HomTom is only a hair thicker than the recently announced OnePlus Two (9.85mm) which packs half (3,300mAh) the battery capacity. How’s that for comparisons?
Doogee also has you covered when it comes to charge times – the company is promising that MediaTek’s PumpExpress Plus fast charging tech can charge 75% of the HomTom’s capacity in just 30 minutes.
While the HomTom has you covered in the battery department, it has more modest specs than other phones – a quad-core MT6735 processor, 5.5-inch HD display, 13-megapixel rear camera paired with a Sony sensor, and Android 5.1 Lollipop. Doogee’s not given a price on the upcoming device as of yet. Local brands, this is yet another nice phone to bring to the PH, and if there’s one thing we know, it’s that people will be willing to buy a phone that has a massive battery as long as the price is right.
