Energizer is unveiling a phone with a whopping 18,000mAH battery.

The 26 new phones that Energizer will unveil at MWC later this month will be a part of its Energy, Hardcase, Ultimate, and Power Max ranges.

The Power Max and Ultimate ranges both reportedly include Android smartphones.

The phones in the Ultimate range will come with features like pop-up selfie cameras and water-drop notch displays.

At this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, though, Energizer its taking its smartphone lineup a few steps further.

The U620S and U630S Pop models are certainly cute, but they will apparently be fairly mid-range, so probably not too much to get excited about specs-wise. In the camera department, this handset has a 16MP and 13MP dual rear camera setup that offer Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) and dual-tone dual-LED flash.

Of the expected devices, two are expected to spot pop-up cameras, kinda like what we saw with the Vivo Apex previous year. The most interesting of these is the 6.5-inch Energizer Ultimate U650S, with a 16/2-megapixel dual rear camera, a 16-megapixel selfie camera, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a 3,500mAh battery. The model features a 6.2-inch FHD+ resolution screen and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset.

The largest screened Energizer model that will be displayed at MWC is the Ultimate U650S. In comparison, an iPhone XS Max has a battery capacity of 3,174 mAh. Likewise, U620S Pop has triple cameras in the back (16MP, 5MP, and 2MP) with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

I can't even begin to fathom what kind of battery life you'll be able to eke out with 18,000 mAh, but seeing as how this is coming from Energizer - the battery company - I suppose it's not all that surprising.

According to the GSMArena report, the U630S will launch in June, followed by the U620S in July. The company also linked to an official press release that revealed more about the upcoming devices. Oppo's smartphone sales grew 6.8% 29.2 million in the final quarter of a year ago, while Xiaomi's edged upward by 1.4% to 28.6 million, IDC estimated.
