Unihertz 8849 Tank 3 Highlights and Overview

This is Unihertz 8849 Tank 3, the direct successor to the Tank 2 announced a few months ago. The device is the world’s first smartphone to house a 23,000mAh battery (23800mAh actually). It is powered by the Dimensity 8200 5G CPU from MediaTek, making it the first 5G-enabled device in the Tank series.

Another notable spec of the Unihertz Tank 3 is the camera system. It is given a large 200-megapixel main camera on the rear, making it the third rugged smartphone to use such a large sensor in addition to the IIIF150 B2 Ultra, and the recently announced Doogee V30 Pro smartphone.

The 8849 Tank 3 also has other interesting backup camera modules. These include a 64-megapixel dedicated night camera, a 50-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and another 50-megapixel front-facing selfie camera.

Another unique feature of the Tank 3 is the included 40M Laser Rangefinder which can be used for measuring distances. It also comes with a large 1200-lumen LED camp lamp, Bluetooth 5.3, and Google’s Android 13 OS.

Other specification of the Tank 3 includes a 6.79-inch IPS display with 120Hz refresh, 16GB main RAM + 16GB virtual RAM, 512GB of built-in storage, and up to 2TB expandable storage via SD-card. The 23,800mAh battery is also given a 120W fast charger.
