You might not know that Energizer makes phones, but they do. Although most are feature phones, they do make a few Android phones, and here on our news table is their newest smartphone riding to the 18:9 display ratio bandwagon – the Energizer PowerMax 600s.

So yes, they released it, what’s the catch?

The new PowerMax 600s sports a dope carbon fiber look behind which resembles to something made by BlackBerry before (or a phone skinned with it) and a 5.99-inch screen with FHD+ resolution and rounded corners. It was powered by a MediTek’s 64-bit Helio P25 octa-core processor and a Mali-T880MP2 GPU. It comes with either 3GB RAM / 32GB storage (Black Variant) or a 6GB RAM / 64GB ROM (Blue Variant).

The phone’s big 4,500mAh battery thankfully has fast charging support via USB Type-C port.
In terms of optics, it came with dual rear cameras equipped with Samsung sensors, 13MP + 5MP respectively, while the front boasts an 8MP single camera with flash. There’s also the rear-mounted fingerprint reader.
Lastly, it comes out with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box which is a little bit outdated considering the 8.0 (Oreo) is already out for months now.
As GSMArean points out, the handset looks good overall for a mid-range phone, it is just a bit thick at 9.8 mm, comparing to a Huawei Mate 10 with 4,000mAh which is only 7.9mm thick.
The phone will become available in mid-January and will be sold by the following distributors:
