Energizer has claimed that its latest Android smartphone, which is equipped with a high-capacity battery, can last up to 16 days on standby mode.
The Hardcase H550S is powered with a 4000 milliampere (mAh) battery that offers a 10-hour talk time and is paired with “intelligent power saving technology” to optimise the battery.
The phone, which is licensed through France-headquartered Avenir Telecom, also includes a fast charger and a USB type-C cable out of the box.
Inside the phone is a Mediatek MT6750T eight core 1.5 GHz processor, along with 3 gigabytes of RAM and 32 GB of expandable internal storage.
It also has a 16 megapixel main camera and an 8 megapixel front camera from Sony. The 5.5-inch Gorilla Glass 3 screen has a resolution of 1080p, and features slightly rounded edges.
The H550S has received an IP68 certification with its dustproof body that and can also resist up to a 1.5 metre fall and a 30-minute submersion under 1.5 metres of water.
Rounding out the features are NFC connectivity, two SIM card slots, VR compatibility and a fingerprint reader.
Three versions of the phone will be sold — one for Europe, another for the Americas and one for Australia and India — and is available in either 2G, 3G and 4G frequency bands to adapt to each region.
