Japan, the promised land for Android techies and alike, is about to get the ‘largest battery’ smartphone in the country, the Kyocera DIGNO S.
Even though it cannot be put against Motorola RAZR MAXX or Samsung Galaxy S III, which pack 3000+ mAh batteries, Kyocera
prides itself for embedding a 2520 mAh Li-Ion battery inside the DIGNO S.
According to Kyocera, the phone’s battery should provide users with up to 18 hours of talk time and up to 720 hours (3G) or 580 hours (LTE) of standby time.
So far, Kyocera failed to unveil any details regarding the phone’s exact release date and pricing options, but we know it will go on sale at KDDI in black, white and pink.
The DIGNO S comes with Kyocera's proprietary Smart Sonic Receiver technology, “which transmits clear audio quality to the user's ear drum directly through vibrations in the handset's display screen.”
In addition, DIGNO S
boasts an impressive 4.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD resolution and Kyocera's proprietary Sugugoe technology. The latter that allows owners to use voice commands to operate the phone and open applications.
Last but not least, with the rapid battery charging function, users will be able to charge the phone’s battery from 0 to 50% within 30 minutes, and 80% of capacity in 60 minutes.
This is possible thanks to the charging dock and AC adaptor that applies 2.7 times more power than standard models. Both devices come bundled in the smartphone’s sales package.
Kyocera DIGNO S comes with full LTE support and features a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, which is complemented by 1 GB of RAM.
No word on the amount of storage, but it’s likely to pack at least 16GB of internal memory, as well as microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
