The HiSense King Kong 6 splits a 10,010mAh battery between the phone and its case

Peter, 12 November 2019

You may think “TVs” when you hear HiSenes, but the company also makes phones – its King Kong series focuses on affordable handsets with long battery life. The latest model was teased today, it uses the same trick as its predecessor to hit over 10,000mAh total capacity.

The HiSense King Kong 6 has a 5,510mAh battery built in and comes with a bespoke battery case that adds another 4,500mAh, which brings us to the advertised capacity of 10,010mAh. The case uses pogo pins on the back of the phone to supply power.

The phone has a 6.52” screen with 720p+ resolution. The chipset is unclear, but there will be two versions – one with 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage and another that ups the RAM to 6GB.

On the rear, there’s a triple camera with 13 + 2 + 2MP sensors (the use of the two small sensors is unknown). Also here is the capacitive fingerprint reader. On the front is an 8MP selfie camera placed inside a teardrop notch.

Pricing and availability (plus the remaining specs) for the HiSense King Kong 6 will be officially revealed soon.

Does it power the phone directly or does it charge the internal battery like battery packs?
