Worried about running out of battery before the day is over? Well, LEAGOO is here to put those worries to bed with their new Shark 1 flagship smartphone that packs a massive battery and quick-charge technology.

The Shark 1 is a massive flagship phablet, sporting a 6″ full-HD LG LTPS display with a pixel density of 368ppi tucked under the protective arm of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4. Inside, the smartphone is powered by a MediaTek 64-bit Octa-Core MediaTek MT6753 processor mated to 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable (up to 128GB via microSD) storage.

By far the smartphone’s biggest selling point is its massive 6,300 mAh battery that supports Pump Express Flash Charge technology. This quick-charging technology pumps up 9V/3A and can give users a full day of use after only 30 minutes on the plug. A full charge should last moderate users up to 3.5 days and heavy users up to 2 days.

That’s not entirely surprising considering the massive power cell located beneath its dynamic metal unibody design. Despite the massive battery, the smartphone still manages to maintain a relatively thin 8.5mm profile, only about half a millimetre thicker than the Huawei Mate 8 which packs a 4,000 mAh battery.

For optics, it gets a 13-megapixel Sony BSI-2 f/2.0 aperture rear camera with a 5MP front-facing selfie snapper paired with a front and rear LED flashes to help with low-light shots.

Out of the box, the LEAGOO Shark 1 comes running Android Lollipop with LEAGOO’s own OS v1.2 skin running on top. The smartphone also sports a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor which can unlock your smartphone in 0.39 seconds. The fingerprint sensor can also double as an alternate button for taking photos and launching your favourite apps.

Priced RM999, this smartphone is pretty good value for money especially considering its large screen and massive battery. If you’d like to pick one up, the LEAGOO Shark 1 is available at LEAGOO’s flagship store in Low Yat Plaza and at all authorised resellers. It will come in three colours — Modern Gold, Elegant Black and Satin Silver.
