Is Oukitel K7000 going to be slimmest phone with a massive battery ?

In one of our previous articles about the upcoming Oukitel K7000 phone we put a speculative question out there asking how the heck the engineers plan to get the 7000 mAh battery into the alleged 4 mm thin body. Well seems like today we got our answer to that directly from the makers themselves.

It’s quite obvious that bigger battery needs more space and that it’s going to manifest either in the thickness or the weight, normally actually in both. In the Oukitel K7000 case the manufacturer used something called “Matrix charger” and it’s similar to the iPhone’s “Juice Pack:

So no revolution in sight at all and only gimmicky option ahead. The Oukitel K7000 will be really only 4 mm thin, but also it will be sporting only 2000 mAh battery capacity (the battery will be actually removable) and as part of the packaging there will be a “Matrix” charger or rather a powerbank with 5000 mAh capacity. So if your phone’s battery will be running low you just plug it in the “Matrix” and your troubles are gone, no additional cables or chargers needed. And of course the “Matrix” can be used to charge up even some other devices if needed.

This charging box will be used also as the phone protection or the phone stand, so nothing new there either, moving on.

So to answer the question in the title, no the Oukitel K7000 is not going to be the slimmest phone with the massive battery, because it’s all a marketing trick and the announced capacity is counted with an external powerbank. So what do you think about that ? Did you believe the 7000 mAh battery in 4 mm thin body is possible even for a second ? Let us know in the comments.

    Isn’t it more comfortable to bring with you a couple of spare batteries?
    Yet, I’d like to see how it comes out, maybe the ides itself is not bad (like “I want to see a movie/long video on YouTube while travelling with bus, let’s put the cover on so I won’t waste battery”).

    Of course, I didn’t fell for that, but I think no one did, it was too obvious

    I’d rather not be carrying a spare.

    4mm is too thin for a phone anyway. It won’t be solid enough to withstand drops or the slightest bend attempts (i.e. phone in pants pocket). Personally I would rather carry a 7-10mm phone that feels solid with one battery that would last all day.

    It’s technically possible to build a 4mm phone with a 7000mAh battery, as long as your phone is 15″. But that makes it a tablet so you’re done -_-

    Seriously, Oukitel talking about a 7000mAh 4mm phone is like Elephone talking about their next flagship grade phone, or a politician talking about his political program.

    Cool down guys!
    It`s a new design. The phone by itself has a 2000mAh battery, and that is why is so slim. However you get this add-on kinda back plate that has additional 5000mAh if you need it included in the package.
    I say this is not a bad way to do it.
    Use the regular one and on trips or long working sessions take you MATRIX companion with you.
    At least Oukitel are trying something different
