Oukitel is one of many Chinese smartphone OEMs, but also one of the more interesting ones. We’ve talked about this company and their products quite a few times thus far. Oukitel is working on releasing the smartphone powered by a 10,000mAh battery, as you might have heard recently. That device is still not ready to be released, but the company did release two interesting products lately, the Oukitel U10 smartphone and the Oukitel A28 smartwatch. We’ve already talked about the smartwatch in the past, and it’s time to take a closer look at the aforementioned smartphone.
First and foremost, it is worth mentioning that this handset is made out of metal. The phone is only 7.9mm thick, and it offers really compelling specs, especially if you consider it costs only $159.99. The device features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) JDI display with a 2.5D curved glass on top of it. This handset sports 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, while a 2,850mAh battery lies on the inside. MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core SoC powers this handset, and Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed here. The 13-megapixel camera is located on the back of Oukitel U10 along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash, while a 5-megapixel snapper is available on the front side of this smartphone. This is a dual-SIM handset which offers 4G LTE connectivity, and it also packs in a rear-facing fingerprint scanner.
As you can see in the provided images down below, this handset features three capacitive buttons below the display: menu, home and back, respectively. The device’s display is fully laminated, and the phone is available in Black (Dark Gray) and Champagne color options. The Oukitel U10 is certainly an interesting smartphone, it offers more than solid specifications and costs well below $200. Oukitel U10 is a Chinese smartphone, but it’s available for purchase all over the world. This company sells their devices through various China-based resellers which ship their devices all over the world, and if you’d like to purchase Oukitel U10, you can get a copy from GearBest where the device now costs $149.99 (discounted).
