At MWC 2018 Bluboo announced some new smartphones, but Bluboo S3 was one of the most interesting among them. The main feature of new phone is 8500mAh battery. It sound impressive, isn’t it?
As you know, today the battery life of smartphones plays a very important role. It’s a pity, but the manufacturers don’t understand the main problem of modern phones, and make mobile devices thinner, so they have less battery capacity.

BLUBOO S3: Display
BLUBOO S3 has 6-inch display manufactured by Sharp with an 18:9 aspect ratio based on In-Cell technology. Most likely, the resolution will be FullHD +. Also we expect that smartphone will have oleophobic coating. Of course, new device tries to be bezel-less, like many other Chinese phones.
BLUBOO S3: Battery
As we already said, the main feature of BLUBOO S3 is its battery. The manufacturer says that smartphone has 8500mAh battery. Of course, it will support fast charging technology MTK PE 3.0 (12 V / 2 A). The full battery charge from 0 to 100% takes only 2.5 hours. If Bluboo S3 really has 8500mAh battery, then the smartphone will work up to 4 days on a single charge.
Also we should not the thickness of smartphone. Despite its really big battery, it will be only 11.2 mm. For clarity, you need to give an example. For example, Ulefone Power3 with a battery capacity of 6030 mAh, has the thickness of 10 mm. Do you feel the difference? The battery capacity is 40% more, and the thickness is only 18% more. Of course, even 11.2 mm is a fairly large thickness, so BLUBOO S3 will have rounded side faces on the rear camera side. All this make the smartphone very comfortable to use with one hand.
Another good news: new smartphone will have third generation USB Type C port with OTG support. It means that you can transfer files on a high speed from smartphone to PC, but also use the smartphone as power band. Yes, new Bluboo phone can be used as an external battery for charging other devices.
