Remember a few days ago when we broke details of the Eton Thundergod with octacore processor and huge 5000mAh battery capacity? Well here are more details to get your mouth watering.

Eton have taken their “Hype” machine in to overdrive and released further details of their large capacity, 5000mAh Thundergod smartphone.

Previously all that was known about the phone was the battery capacity and the choice of MT6592 octacore processor, but today we can reveal further juicy specifications.

Eton have announced that the the display will be a large 5.7-inch 1920 x 1080 OGS FHD model with Corning Gorilla Glass, and also features LTPS tech to allow use with wet hands or with gloves.

The Thundergod is bucking trends of previous large battery phones by not only being thin despite the large battery (below 10mm) but also receiving similar hardware to flagship smartphones.

Eton are sure to release further details so keep posted.

    Too bad…. 5.7 Inch is just too big. 5.2 or 5.0 would have been far more impressive and I presume would have been easier to sell.

      I agree that 5 or 5.2 inches would’ve been more impressive. It would also be better for guys like you who can’t bear 5.5+ inched phones, since there’s not enough 5 inchers with large batteries. Us phablet loves already have great battery life, there was no need for another one.

    To feed the power hungry octa core Mt6592.and 5.7 FHD fhd screen a big battery is essential but 5000 mAh might be more of a gimmick..4000 mAh.would be quite appropriate.

      I don’t think a large battery counts as a gimmick. Things like most of the Galaxy S4’s features and the weird Oppo gestures (the ones where you need to move your whole arm in a circle, the off screen gestures are actually useful) are gimmicks since you probably aren’t going to use them for anything other than showing off. A super huge battery will eventually come in handy one way or another.

    Mmmm… maybe 2x 2500 mAh hot swappable batteries would have been a good selling point!
    Including 3 batteries in the pack it could really save you the day.

      While i think the concept is good, I wonder if android is ready for two batteries. I suppose it could show combined charge. At least each battery will need a separate charging circuitry. They can be put in series, then the charge will be roughly same in both, or you could deplete one at first and then switch to the second one

      I think you’ve stumbled upon the kernel of an idea. There isn’t enough room for 2 batteries, BUT a single battery slot, and enough of backup battery for perhaps 1 minute to swap primary batteries, could be a great feature.

    I don’t understand, people on here are always complaining about one thing – too small a battery. Now there is a phone due to be released with a huge battery and people are complaining its too big!! I think all phones should have monster sized batteries like this, no need for charging every single day or more with heavy use. Bring it on I say..

    I got 2 spare batteries with my THL W8S so I joined the terminals together and made an extended battery with 2 of them. It sometime loses calibration but I get double battery life.

    I wish they made extended batteries for Chinaphone

    it would be nice to know some of the other spec, LTE bands, # of SIM slots, memory, OS, etc.

    why oh why none of these companies want to come out with a casing with PV, so we can use the solar power?

    If they can get 5000 mAh in < 10mm, then I don't want their phone.

    Why, you ask?
    Because if they would've added another 3-4mm I'd have a 6000mAh or better.
    Stop wasting the empty space for no good reason and start making ~15mm phones again!
