Leagoo Shark 1 announced with 6300mAh battery


leagoo shark 1

Leagoo have gone big with the announcement of the Leagoo Shark 1, a phone with a big screen and a big battery to match.

If the idea of the Ulefone Power interests you but you want an even bigger battery and large display, then Leagoo might have the perfect product.

The Shark 1 boasts a 6300mAh battery, 250mAh larger than the Ulefone Power, and a large 6-inch 1920 x 1080 display supplied by LG. The panel also features a 2.5D curve and Corning Gorilla Glass for added peace of mind.

Quick charging means you can fully charge the huge battery in just 3 hours, but a short top up charge is all you need to get through the day. Apparently a fully charged battery will give you 3 days of general use, 25 hours of video streaming, and 49 hours of continuous music playback.

Being a longer and wider phone, the battery in the Shark 1 can be spread out a little allowing Leagoo’s designers to get the thickness of the device down to 8.5mm.

In the rear of the phone we have a fingerprint scanner for security purposes, and also gesture control such as turning pages in an ebook or taking photos. The rear camera is a 13 mega-pixel sensor with F2.0 aperture, plus dual LED flash.

Internally Leagoo say they have gone for the most powerful processor, but its not. Instead we have a octacore Mediatek chip running at 1.3Ghz, there is however 3GB RAM on board plus 16GB internal memory and room for an SD card.

Finally an IR blaster is present in the top of the phone and a AWINiC K6 amplifier promises better sound quality that rival devices.

It does seem that Leagoo have gone to some extra effort with the Shark 1 compared to their previous devices, but it remains to be seen what the actual product will be once launched.

    It’s gonna have some black bands at 158.6*82.8*8.5 but compact enough.

      Considering it’s a 6″, not 5.5″, seems really optimized to me… To the point i doubt a bit it’s accurate, but surely if i take a 6″ i’m not doing it for one-handed use, so it doesn’t bother me ?

      The screen looks nice for me, not extra-invasive black bezels, the Ulefone Power have ugly ones for example. But what bother me, at least looking for this video, is the buttons and fingerprint placement. The buttons are placed way too up, and the fingerprint too. For a phone with 6-inch a more centered placement would be better.

        No extra-invasive black bezels?Are you kidding me?In addition to the black bezels, there are virtual buttons at the bottom, it takes up most of the screen display, the display screen and CPU-Z is 4.95inch?

      I’m using a leagoo elite 5 since 6 months, I received 3 ota updates and the phone has yet to fail me.

      I second Yeti hand here, I have a Jiayu S3 and Leagoo Elite 5. While the Jiayu is more powerful and have a better development, the Leagoo Elite 5 never failed, and I absolutely love the battery, plus functional IR. They actually suffered a lot for using cheap components and build on last year, but seems to be improving.

      Only one thing ….is the CPU ..I want helio x10

      • Karly Johnston
        February 3, 2016

        Yeah, i wouldn’t even consider anything less than the X10 in 2016. That is the problem with these monster battery phones, they have weak processors.

        • paul

          They are certainly not weak CPU’s, I have the Ulefone power which is 1.3 Octa Core and it outperforms the Letv 1s 2.2 Octa core and it was mainly to do with all the crap bloatware that was installed on the Letv 1s.

    OK now this have thrown me a bit off the Ulefone Power. Which one to buy? Considering that I’d prefer the 6″ display over the 5.5″ of the Ulefone Power. But the Ulefone has the Camera shutter button that is lacking in this one. And this is thinner too but larger.

    Reviews will decide. For now, I am satisfied with the Ulefone Power review. Lets see this one and I will decide, but if they take a while longer to launch this, I am getting the Power for sure.

      Hi Michael, I hope you’re fine, have you ever considered the leagoo elite pro?

    • Michael Ogbonnaya
      February 5, 2016

      Thats a good alternative and considering that it has Helio X20, 4GB RAM/64GB ROM for the higher version and also 4200mAh battery, I have got my keen eyes on this one now.

      Thank you so much Yeti.

    Looks like a Great work/travel phone, but would still wait a month or two before ordering, just to get some feedback from the buyers as Leagoo are not great when it comes to built quality.

      February 4, 2016

      I’ve got a Leagoo Elite 5 a few time ago. The build quality looks really solid, even being a plastic based device. The design may not please everyone though. But then I was expecting a plastic bomb, looks like they got better this year.
