BLU has announced the Studio Energy smartphone with one killer selling feature: a whopping 5,000 mAh battery. That’s the biggest we’ve ever seen in a smartphone, and it supposedly features 45 days of standby time or 4 days of usage on a single charge. That’s something most other manufacturers can only dream of achieving with their flagship phones.
The other specs aren’t anything to write home about, but the device is priced at just $149.99 on Amazon, which is a fantastic price. The Studio Energy packs a 1.3 ghz quad-core processor with a Mali-400 GPU, a 720p screen, 8 GB of internal storage with expandable memory, and an 8 megapixel camera. It’ll be available in Ceramic White, Midnight Black, or Luxury Gold. It won’t compete with a Galaxy S 6 or LG G4, but hey, for $150, that’s not bad, especially if you value battery life.
