Energizer unveils Ultimate series with two phones with dual pop-up cameras
There will be 26 new Energizer phones at the MWC and Avenir (the company that’s building them) just gave us a detailed look at arguably the most interesting new product line – the Ultimate series.
Note: the specs are not final and may change.
Energizer Ultimate U620S Pop and U630S Pop
Both phones feature dual selfie pop-up cameras – the first of their kind. They combine a 16MP main camera with a 2MP depth sensor.
The Energizer Ultimate U620S Pop is the more premium offering with a 6.2” 1080p+ screen and a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. It comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage and it has a microSD slot.
There’s a triple camera on the rear – 16 + 5 + 2MP. The third module is clearly a depth sensor, but we don’t know that the 5MP camera does.
Anyway, there’s a side-mounted fingerprint reader on this one, plus a 3,200mAh battery with fast charge.
The Energizer Ultimate U630S Pop has a 6.3” screen with 720p+ resolution and drops down to a Helio P22 chipset (4/64GB). This one has a slightly larger battery, 3,500mAh.
The rear houses a dual camera – 16 + 2MP – and the fingerprint reader. And is that a hump?
The U630S will launch in June, followed by the U620S in July.
Energizer Ultimate U650S
The largest of the series, the Energizer Ultimate U650S sports a 6.5” display with 720p+ resolution. There’s a waterdrop notch with a 16MP selfie camera, plus a 16 + 2MP dual camera on the back.
The phone is powered by a Helio P22 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage (plus a microSD slot for up to 256GB more). There’s a 3,500mah battery inside with fast charging over USB-C.
The Ultimate U650S is a long way away – it will launch in October.
Energizer Ultimate U620S
Notice the lack of “Pop”. The Energizer Ultimate U620S is similar to the U630S (yes, the naming can get confusing).
It has a 6.2” 720p+ screen and, instead of a pop-up, it puts its single 16MP selfie camera in a waterdrop notch. It has the usual 16+2MP dual camera on the back.
This phone is powered by a MediaTek MT6765 chipset (a faster version of the Helio A22). It offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage (expandable). The Ultimate U620S has the largest battery here – 4,000mAh.
It will launch in June and will be available in two colors: Purple/Blue and Blue/Green gradients.
Energizer Ultimate U570S
The Energizer Ultimate U570S is the smallest of the five with a 5.7” screen (720p+). It also has a small notch for a 16MP selfie camera and 16+2MP dual camera on the back.
This one drops to a quad-core processor and 32GB storage – this is the entry level of the Ultimate series. It has a 3,000mAh battery and a microUSB port, plus a 3.5mm headphone jack (the U620S above is the only other phone here to offer a 3.5mm jack).
The Ultimate U570S is coming out in April in three colors: Purple/Blue gradient, Blue and Yellow.

They are actually rebranded Elephone smartphones. Not theft, but a common practice where one company does the design, hardware and so on, and another company licenses it, rebrands the product and sells it. Gionee was a company that offered such servi...

Those are pretty small battery capacities for phones by a battery maker.
