Some phones are born with it; others need the help from ugly accessories. We’re talking about battery life, which is a topic we’re constantly asked about, and the answers always vary. Alcatel is offering an alternative solution, and it comes bearing a 5000mAh battery.
The Pixi 4 Plus Power is fully committed in its ability to last long. Its battery capacity is so large, it can provide enough juice for another device — just like a power bank. Of course, anything this big takes an eternity to charge, but Alcatel has that covered, too.
There’s quick charge technology on board to help in recharging with great haste. We’re not certain what kind exactly, but let’s assume that the package will include the compatible charger.
Alcatel claims that the Pixi 4 Plus Power can last 2.7 days on a single charge. That’s really specific, if you ask us. Additionally, we should expect 22 hours of web browsing through Wi-Fi, 14 hours of pure video streaming, and five days of constant music output.
All that feels a little excessive, but if you consider the low energy consumption of the chipset, you won’t be surprised at all. The specs sheet reveals a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720-pixel display, 1GB of memory, 8GB of expandable storage, and 3G connectivity.
So, nothing impressive other than the monstrous battery? Wrong. Both the 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel selfie shooter have LED flash units. That’s always a plus in our book.
Fortunately, the profile is just shy of a centimeter thick at 9.9mm, and the dual-SIM model seems to be standard. Alcatel hasn’t revealed the price or release date yet, and color options seem to be dependent on each region.
