The WP5000 is a new rugged smartphone from OUKITEL and one that has been teased over the past few weeks with a number of new videos showcasing the durable properties of the smartphone. A new video has now been released by the company although this one is less about the ruggedness and more about the performance. As the video shows the OUKITEL WP5000 undertaking an AnTuTu test.
As per the video, the OUKITEL WP5000 is seen scoring 73119 on AnTuTu. While this is not necessarily the highest score you will see on this test, considering this is a rugged phone it is a score which should easily compete with most of the other rugged options currently on the market. In addition to the main test, the video also shows a more robust view of the software experience with what is essentially a software hands-on video overall. Adding to the release of the new video OUKITEL has also now released a more detailed spec list. For example, the OUKITEL WP5000 is now confirmed as coming equipped with a 5.7-inch display along with an 18:9 aspect ratio resulting in a 1440 x 720 resolution. Inside, the WP5000 features 6GB RAM, 64GB storage, and is powered by a MediaTek MT6757CD octa-core processor. Cameras consist of a dual rear setup (comprised of 16 and 5-megapixel cameras), as well as an 8-megapixel camera on the front. Additional features include microSD card support (up to 128GB), dual-SIM support, a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C connectivity, a 5,000 mAh battery, and Android 7.1.1 (Nougat). Lastly, network compatibility is listed as GSM: 850/900/1800/1900MHz; WCDMA: 900/2100MHz; 4G FDD: B1/B3/B7/B8/B20.
Some of the other notable features include a thinner design overall (compared to typical rugged phones), a waterproof body, an advanced power-saving mode, the ability to answer calls by shaking the phone, and Zello support. The latter of which looks to offer cost-free calls by essentially allowing devices to communicate with each other more like how walkie-talkies do. In terms of availability, it is expected the OUKITEL WP5000 will become available to buy before the end of this month or at the very latest during the early part of April. At which point this rugged smartphone will be available in either a black, green or orange color option. As for the price, the WP5000 will cost $299.99 although OUKITEL is currently offering a discount coupon to those who subscribe through the company’s website.
