The smartphone market is a cruel place if you’re a manufacturer, the competition is stiffer than ever and manufacturers are forced to push the boundaries of smartphone limits in order to gain attention.
Some Indian companies are doing it by making $4 smartphones and then giving it away for free and $8 smartphones. For the Chinese, its about RAM. One Plus first did it by including flagship specs at mid-range prices, and recently it made headlines by including 6GB of RAM in its latest OnePlus 3 and now LeEco is bringing a phone with 8GB of RAM coupled with a 25 Mega pixel camera.
Samsung has been doing this for years first with the 5.3 inch Note when 4.5 inches was considered big. The recent one you all have heard is the Iris Scanner in the Note 7. Samsung has plans of bringing it to the mid-range Galaxy devices as well.
The latest to join the race is the Russian smartphone manufacturer Highscreen which has introduced a new smartphone, which comes with 8000mAh capacity battery called as Pure Power and has been listed on their company’s website with all specifications.
The powerbank in your pocket is the tagline. If the 8000mAh sounds like a huge battery though, be assured its not as huge as the 10,000mAh one in Oukitel K10000. which is a local Chinese manufacturer.
The Highscreen Pure Power smartphone comes in Black, Blue and orange color options and is available for buy at shop.highscreen website at a price tag of 7490 p (~$114 I think. Do correct me if I’m wrong.). It features a 5.0-inch IPS display that comes with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It offers a pixel density of 294 PPI and has a mineral glass protection on the front. This smartphone runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box with pre-installed applications.

A MediaTek MT6580 quad-core processor that clocks at 1.3 GHz accompanied by Mali 400 graphics, dual SIM, 8GB of internal memory with expandable storage via microSD card slot and has a 1 GB of RAM, 5-megapixel primary camera with LED flash which will record videos in 1080p at 30 frames per second. On the front, it comes with a 2-megapixel secondary camera for selfies and video chats. So as is obvious, apart from the battery, nothing much else that I’d even count as mediocre. Its worse considering this is 2016 and a $8 smartphone leaves this one to dust apart from the battery. At least just in specs. The smartphone is currently available only in Russia from highscreen.ru
