The battery also takes a whopping 8 hours to charge fully, but I doubt you'd ever reach 0% battery unless you actually tried, given the phone could last practically through the week with moderated usage.

Apparently Energizer is showing off a non-functioning representation of the Power Max P18K Pop.

Before you start pulling out your wallet, keep in mind that this battery life comes with a pretty big tradeoff.

To be honest, we don't recall seeing any smartphone powered by a MediaTek silicon being this expensive, so it looks like Energizer wants to capitalize on the opportunity by outfitting the device with a "larger than life" battery.

The Energizer Power Max P18K Pop launches this June priced at 600 Euros, which is around $682. In fact, you could probably buy something about half the price with comparable specs and about a battery that's 15,000-mAh smaller - but where's the fun in that? And when a full charge is necessary, users can recharge their device quickly thanks to the fast charge function'.

The dark blue finish of the Power Max P18K Pop made it looks rather neat while the glass cover on its back and minimal display bezels provide a premium feel to it.

At the beginning of the month, we reported Energizer was planning on announcing a myriad of phones at MWC. Instead of a sensor notch, the P18K Pop uses a physical pop-out module with two selfie cameras. 'It's as if they took a portable USB power bank and glued a phone to it'.

Mavs owner and billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban also expressed his gratitude for Rivers' gesture. With his Clippers up 121-112 and under 10 seconds remaining, Rivers had his team call timeout.

I've stacked three phones on top of each other to match the P18K Pop's size. The display is a 6.2-inch screen with a 19:9 aspect ratio.

The 6.2-inch display features 1080p resolution and is nearly entirely bezel-less.

There are three rear cameras with lenses that are 12 megapixels, 5 megapixels and 2 megapixels. Besides that enormous battery, it has a 6.2-inch notch-less screen, a triple, 12/5/2-megapixel rear camera, a dual, 16/2-megapixel pop-up camera, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

However, early tests of the device don't appear to be totally ideal.

However, one person wasn't quite sure whether they loved it or absolutely hated it.

Additionally, despite its super powerful battery, The Verge noted that performance was glitchy and unreliable.
