As if the straightforward undeniable fact that Energizer sells smartphones wasn’t stunning sufficient, the corporate is unveiling 26 new fashions at Cellular World Congress this 12 months, with flagship options like pop-up cameras, an enormous 18,000mAh battery, and a foldable show. And earlier than you get any concepts, simply know that these are all separate telephones (although a telephone with all three of those options would actually be a sight to behold). The truth is, the silhouettes of the pop-up digital camera fashions make the telephones seem like large batteries, which is weirdly applicable.
In response to 9to5Google, the telephones shall be a part of 4 strains: Energy Max, Final, Power, and Hardcase. The majority of the 26 new fashions shall be fundamental function telephones, a part of the Power and Hardcase strains. The Energy Max line will embody the 18,000mAh mannequin (the biggest battery ever in a telephone, adopted by Energizer’s personal 16,000mAh Power Max P16K Pro), and telephones within the Final line can have options just like the pop-up digital camera and teardrop notch shows.
Although not a lot is but recognized concerning the specs of all the telephones, we do know some particulars concerning the Final telephones, the extra “premium” line. GSM Arena experiences that the Energizer Final U620S Pop and U630S Pop run on P70 and P22 MediaTek Helio chipsets, respectively. Each have twin cameras in a motorized pop-up: a 16MP predominant digital camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The U620S Pop has triple cameras within the again (16MP, 5MP, and 2MP) with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Will probably be launched in July, whereas the U630S Pop has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and is coming in June.
Though we don’t have photographs of what the 18,000mAh-battery mannequin or the foldable smartphone appears to be like like, my guess is that the foldable smartphone will almost certainly be a wonky idea gadget alongside the strains of Royole’s “charmingly awful” Flexpai, slightly than one thing resembling Samsung’s anticipated foldable phone.
The telephones are made by a French firm referred to as Avenir Telecom, which has been promoting low-spec phones for years beneath the Energizer license. Nonetheless, if an unknown model like Avenir could make edge-to-edge show telephones with pop-up digital camera designs, that claims so much about the place we’re by way of telephone innovation.
We’ll know extra when Energizer debuts the telephones at MWC, which begins February 25th.
