A new smartphone is in the works: the Homtom HT6. It doesn’t have the best of specs, but it does offer a huge battery capacity.
To be specific, the Homtom HT6 boasts a 6250mAh battery. Such battery is atypical in smartphones (and more common in larger mobile devices), but that hasn’t stopped the phone from fitting such battery inside its alloy chassis. Based on the pictures, the phone has managed to stay relatively thin. Charging times won’t be a problem for the Homtom HT6, because it utilizes MediaTek’s PumpExpress Plus technology that lets it charge to 75 percent in just half an hour.

The rather silly name, Homtom, is a new sub-brand from Chinese manufacturer Doogee. While not exactly catchy, we’ll probably get used to these brands just as we have become accustomed to Huawei, Oppo, Gionee and other Chinese brands that were previously unheard of in the Philippines. By the way, “homtom” apparently stands for “eternal connection.”
The Homtom HT6 officially launches in September.
