Another Energizer-branded device was announced today by the French-based company Avenir Telecom. It’s the Energizer Energy E240S 4G VoLTE feature phone and it packs some quite interesting hardware for its category, going from the large 2000mAh to a front camera selfie.
The E240S comes packing a big 2000mAh battery, which can last up to 14 days on standby or provide up to 15 hours of talktime (in 2G mode).
Practical and fun
The phone features a design that is very reminiscent of some devices that came out in the early 2000s. This design does not only give us a nostalgic feeling though, but is also super compact compared to the plethora of other 4G devices on the market as it features a 2.4″ TFT QVGA display which is big enough for basic smart functionalities such as checking social media, stream the latest online videos and even read the news.
Photos and videos
Albeit a feature phone, the Energy E240S features a 2MP camera at the back and a 0.3MP selfie snapper. Also, it can record 720p videos.
As for the hardware, it comes equipped with a Spreadtrum SC9820W dual core SoC which provides support for 4G-LTE connectivity at speeds of up to 150/50 Mbps as well as VoLTE (Voice over LTE or 4G Voice). VoLTE is a network innovation that gives calls superior voice quality and keeps 4G/LTE active during phone conversations. There’s Dual SIM support as well as a microSD slot to expand the storage to up to 32GB. Of course, FM Radio is a standard and you can listen to it using your favorite pair of headphones via the 3.5mm audio jack. Lastly, the Energy E240S supports Bluetooth 2.1, vibrate function (with a programmable shortcut key) and torch mode.
The Energizer Energy E240S will be available starting on Q2 of 2018 from the partners listed below. Learn more about the Energizer Series on the official website.
