Another larger capacity phone to rival the Lenovo P780, the Eton Raytheon boasts a 5000mAh battery capacity which appears to be made up of dual batteries.
Chinese phone makers realised long ago that customers want phones with larger battery capacity, but only now are learning how to do it while maintaining current levels of performance and design.
We have seen plenty of large capacity phones which look great until you realise they lack in the processor, RAM or even design department, well the Eton Raytheon is going to try and fix all that!
Gizchina News of the week
A 5000mAh battery capacity is huge for a smartphone, there is probably enough juice on board for the phone to act like a powerbank!, but despite the capacity and what looks like a dual battery set up the body of the Eton is just 10mm thick! What’s more there is an octacore MT6592 chipset on board with Mali 450 GPU and 2GB RAM too!
Eton are claiming the Raytheon will have a standby time of 1100 hours, 55 hours of 2G and 21 hours of 3G! Perfect for anyone who likes to keep their trips to the mains socket to a minimum.[ Source ]
I wish I had an extended battery available for my phone
For anyone wondering why an unknown Chinese mobile phone manufacturer would risk picking a fight with an enormous American defense contractor, the name of this device is actually Thunder God (or Thor, if you like), not Raytheon.
As long as it has Dual SIM too and a decent camera that would be super great. Also it needs to be available outside Asia.
If only it was Lenovo !
Weight? Two batteries can’t be light.
Bullshit! Eton Raytheon prove it !
45 days in standby are useless……
Now this is exactly what I’ve been praying for. They just need to stick in the 2.0GHz MT6592 and they already have one customer in line. With this, I don’t have to worry about charging my battery for over 2 days.
there is 3 things you have to combine to amaze the world
thin, bezelless, long battery life
long battery life but bulky: no
thin but die early: no
thin and long battery life but bezel as wide as yo momma: no
Thinness is overrated. A phone doesn’t need to be thin to look good. The materials used for the phone must be quality, like Oppo and HTC’s recent phones. Bezel doesn’t need to be non-existant, just thin enough to not hamper the experience. No logos on the front. Give it an ergonomic shape that’s comfortable to hold like the Moto X or HTC One M8. It needs some heft but not too much, somewhere around 143-148g. It doesn’t need to be thin, but being TOO thick is not good either, so make it somewhere around 9-11mm and a curved back to mask it. Smash a huge battery in it, that’s what’s important. It also needs well optimized software software to make the best out of the huge battery. A nice UI to round everything off, something like Asus Zen UI and it’ll be gold.
i’m sorry for annoying you for my existence in future, i’m sorry for not live with 90’s thought.
in my world software and hardware work each other, it’s ok to make phone bezelless even up to 1mm around its display because there’s a thumb rejection logic on display and even if you want frame/bezel in your phone you can use setting to add bezel on display
light charging, proximity and light ambience is a glass layer to its display, front camera and earpiece pop up so no need upper bezel anymore
you probably never use very thin device, a thin device is very good for hand grip it feel very solid to your hand, if you don’t believe try this simple test just try grip your credit card and if you want to know how thin device feel try stack and glue credit card until reach thin point you want to feel.
Dude, I use a Huawei Ascend P6. I know that if a phone isn’t ergonomically designed, it’s uncomfortable to use.
Having too thin of a bezel will make a side drop on any hard surface fatal.
You can enjoy your future. I’d rather wait and see what happens than make a time machine to show off. I’d also take modular smartphones over bezeless smartphones any day.
You also never mentioned how well optimized your future phone is. Perhaps it runs out of battery in a few minutes?
“Thinness is overrated”
Exactly, would rather have the phone thicker but have a bigger battery
