Oukitel is one of Chinese smartphone manufacturers who sell their smartphone products via a number of Chinese resellers. This company has been manufacturing somewhat interesting devices lately, and a number more are going to launch before the end of this year. We’re currently reviewing the company’s Oukitel U10 smartphone, which is a very affordable handset with compelling specifications. The company is also working on a smartphone which will pack a 10,000mAh battery on the inside, and is expected to launch in the coming weeks.
The Oukitel K4000 is another Oukitel-branded smartphone. This is actually a mid-range smartphone which has some really impressive durability capabilities. The device doesn’t look all that rugged, but it seems it can take a serious beating. Oukitel has released a new video on their official webpage… and it’s really interesting. The company is showcasing how resistant this device is by beating its screen with a hammer continuously… spoiler alert!… the device continued working normally after the ‘hammer treatment’. This is rather impressive, and if you tend to break your screen a lot, this might be a solution, even though this is ‘just’ a mid-range phone. The aforementioned video is embedded below this article. As far as the design goes, Oukitel K4000 sports a metallic trim around the device with chamfered edges, and three capacitive buttons below the display (menu, home and back, respectively).
The Oukitel K4000 features a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 64GB). The device is powered by MediaTek’s MT6735 64-bit quad-core SoC running at 1.3GHz, and a 4,000mAh battery is also a part of this package. The 13-megapixel camera is located on the back of Oukitel K4000, and a 5-megapixel snapper is available up front. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with some additions by Oukitel, and 4G LTE connectivity is also included here (FDD-LTE). There you have it, the phone will be available via a number of Chinese resellers soon for around $140, it’s already listed, but the listings still say the phone is not available for purchase (out of stock).
UPDATE: A new video is available down below, this time the phone is knocking nails into wood.
