Chinese brand Elephone has managed to one-up brands like Philips and ThL by introducing a new smartphone with a massive 5350mAh battery, which can supposedly last up to 4 days.

The Elephone P5000 narrowly beats Philips’ W6618 by 50mAh, snatching the crown of the world’s largest battery in a smartphone from the latter.

What’s even more impressive is that Elephone has managed to cram all of that juice into a body that’s only 9.3-mm thin. And though that’s not the thinnest you’ll see, you’ll probably excuse its frame considering how much power the P5000 has.

Inside the device lies a MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor running at 1.7GHz paired with 2GB of RAM, as well as a 5-inch full-HD display, NFC, a fingerprint scanner, an 8-megapixel front camera, and a 16-megapixel rear camera.

Because of the large battery, the Chinese brand has decided to put a fast-charging mode, which fills up the substantial battery to 70% in just an hour.

The Elephone P5000 can act as a power bank for other devices if you so choose.

The smartphone is slated to go on sale in January 2015, though no pricing has yet been set for it. Let’s also see if it’s going to be available in Asia.
