Remember the Eton Raytheon? We brought you news of its 5,000mAh battery and touch sensitive back panel in April, but everything went quiet after that. Now, Eton has officially announced and revealed the device and its specs. Depending on its price, this could be an interesting entry by Eton.
First is the crown jewel of the Raytheon, its massive 5,000mAh battery. It results in a phone a bit thicker than most in 2014 but the tradeoff is a claimed 720 hours of standby mode and 600 minutes of talk time on a single charge. With that kind of battery life, the Raytheon should have no problem getting you through the day and more.
Past that, and its touch sensitive back, we are looking at a fairly standard device. The Eton Raytheon is packed with a 5.7-inch 1080p screen, 2GB of RAM and a 1.7 Ghz Octa-core CPU. It has 16GB of internal storage, a 13 megapixel main camera and a 5 megapixel front facing camera.
There are more than a few Gizchina readers I can think of that will be happy to see a 5,000mAh device. With so many Chinese manufacturers sacrificing battery life for a thin profile, it is refreshing to see a company with their priorities on substance over style. But it is its yet-to-be-revealed price that will go a long way in determining its success.
