OUKITEL has now confirmed that the company is preparing to release a new smartphone, dubbed the OUKITEL U16 Max. The ‘Max’ naming seems fairly appropriate as the big selling points with this smartphone is that it will come with a big display, a big battery and a big level of memory. In fact, in terms of the display, OUKITEL has confirmed that the OUKITEL U16 Max will come equipped with a 6-inch display, making it the first 6-inch smartphone to come through from OUKITEL.
In terms of the rest of the basic specs, OUKITEL has yet to provide in-depth information on what can be expected from the OUKITEL U16 Max. However, the company has confirmed that the 6-inch display will make use of a 1280 x 720 resolution and a 5-point multi-touch panel. The display panel will be sourced from Japan Display Inc (JDI) and will be a Low Temperature Polysilicon (LTPS) display. Based on the information coming through so far, it does seem that the display is going to be one of the main driving forces behind the marketing approach for the OUKITEL U16 Max. Unfortunately, the only other confirmed details that have come through is that the OUKITEL U16 Max will come powered by an unnamed octa-core processor and that the smartphone will come running on the latest version of the Android operating system, Android 7.0 (Nougat).
Likewise, the details on availability are also a little limited at the moment, although OUKITEL is highly suggesting that the the OUKITEL U16 Max will become available sometime in February or March, At launch, it seems the smartphone will firstly be available via Aliexpress as part of an exclusive launch where the smartphone will be discounted as part of a flash sale and coinciding with an ‘Aliexpress Anniversary celebration’ event. At the moment, OUKITEL has yet to provide any details or indications on the likely price of the OUKITEL U16 Max, although it should be expected that this will be positioned as an affordable smartphone, when it finally does hit the market. In the meantime, those who would like to keep up to date on the OUKITEL U16 Max and its availability or pre-sale launch will want to stay tuned to OUKITEL's official website.
