Energizer set to launch 26 smartphones at MWC 2019

It’s weird when hip-hop artists suddenly become small business investors, or when car manufacturers make phones and fridges, right?

Well, it’s also pretty strange to hear that Energizer, perhaps best known as a battery company, plans to launch 26 new smartphones at MWC 2019.

Okay, so perhaps these devices aren’t made by Energizer per se, but rather French company Avenir Telecom which has previously made the company’s devices.

According to GSMArena, the company plans to divide these 26 devices into four distinct product lines each with their own strengths.

The Power Max line, for instance, is set to boast a phone with a battery capacity as large as 18000mAh. Yes, that’s nearly five times the capacity of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

It would make it the largest attached to any smartphone.

Additionally, other design possibilities include thin bezels, a foldable smartphone, and devices that feature pop-up cameras.

To bring the total to 26, feature phones and rugged devices round up the cast.

All will be revealed at MWC 2019, which starts on 25 February.
