ASUS X00GD Is TENAA Certified Including Its 4,850mAh Battery
Smartphones have dominated the past year and we even lost count of the number of brands that came out in the market. With different features and specifications, companies have been in a heated battle on which smartphone tops everyone’s needs and expectation.
The popular ASUS X00GD just received its certification from Nougat, meaning it could be the first ever ASUS-branded smartphone to ship together with Android 7.0 Nougat. It also features an enormous battery on its inside, and its specifications are something which is difficult to ignore. Chinese regulatory agency TENAA is the China’s equivalent to FCC in the US. Latest handsets that are expected to be utilized in China has to go through them for certification.
Presenting ASUS X00GD
Based on the listing, the latest model will run Android Nougat out of the box and it will have a 4850mAh battery. This is an interesting feature since it is incomparable to other unit. As a matter of fact, this is the first smartphone that has such a battery.
Aside from its stunningly large battery feature, the smartphone has a lot more to offer. It will feature an amazing 13 MP rear camera, 5.2-inch 720p display and 8 MP front-facing camera. The rear-facing camera comes with a dual-LED flash. It is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core CPU. It is available with 2/3/4 GB RAM and 16/32/64 GB expandable storage. It is still unclear what processor it uses, however, it looks to be a mid-range model.
The ASUS X00GD offers a 4,850mAh battery which non-removable and the model seems to be made of metal, according to published images. The design of the device is somehow similar to the past handset that were launched in the market. The home button will be put below the phone’s display, and most probably, the fingerprint scanner as well.
We still cannot tell if this will be a physical home button or not, but most probably, it is. All the other physical keys of the phone are stationed on the right-hand side and the logo of the company is located both under the earpiece, and on the back of the phone.
The ASUS X00GD weighs 169 grams and it measures 149.5 x 73.7 x 8.85mm. This device is expected to be launched on the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this coming week, since ASUS did coax a recently launched smartphone unit. As a matter of fact, this might be the first ASUS ZenFone 4 headset to be introduced in 2017, though ASUS is expected to introduce ZenFone 4 line this year.
So, what is the usual battery rating for smartphones? The performance as well as efficiency of the battery can be caused by several factors, the battery’s mAH rating is one of the most important considerations. Higher mAH ratings will mean longer battery life. Regardless of the battery kind the device supports, this basic principle applies for all. Different mobile devices with the exact same mAH may not have the same shelf life, in fact there are things to consider including technology used in the manufacture, usage ways, mobile software, and more, to determine the overall performance of the device’s battery. mAH is simply an indication and it does not 100% translate to real-time assessable results.
Considering the above contention, we cannot say exactly how long will the Asus X00GD be used without recharging, some say days while heavy users say a couple of hours. But, one thing is for sure the certification by TENAA guarantees that the device has a very good battery compared to other handhelds out there.
