The OUKITEL WP1 is now available for purchase from Banggood, and it comes with a discount, while the company has released a new video in which it proves that the OUKITEL WP1 is quite a durable smartphone. The phone is priced at only $159.99 on Banggood, and it will be that way until October 30, when its price tag will jump up to $199.99. Needless to say, the OUKITEL WP1 is a rugged smartphone, which is why the company opted to submit it to several tests in order to prove its durability to consumers. The company did that via a YouTube video which is embedded down below, and which has a duration of about two and a half minutes.
In the provided video, the company decided to drop-test the device, by dropping it not only on grass, but also on concrete and rocks by the beach. The company performed these tests from various heights, and in one test, OUKITEL’s employee actually threw the phone in the air and let it land on the floor. The second-to-last test the company performed actually includes a rubber hammer, and that test was performed to show how tough the phone’s display is. The very last test actually included a real hammer, which confronted the OUKITEL WP1’s display, but the phone managed to prevail and function normally afterwards. The OUKITEL WP1 definitely looks like a rugged phone, even though its bezels are not all that thick. There are two cameras included on the back of this phone, along with an LED flash, and a fingerprint scanner.
The OUKITEL WP1 features a 5.5-inch HD+ (1440 x 720) display, while it is fueled by the Helio P23 64-bit octa-core processor from MediaTek. Android 8.1 Oreo comes pre-installed on the phone, while the device sports 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage (expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card). 13-megapixel (Sony’s IMX135 sensor) and 2-megapixel cameras are included on the back of this phone, while a single 5-megapixel camera sits on the front side of this phone. The OUKITEL WP1 comes with two SIM card slots (you can utilize the second SIM card slot in order to expand the phone’s storage), while a Type-C USB port is included on the bottom. Bluetooth 4.0 is supported here, while the phone sports a 5,000mAh battery which you can recharge with a 9V/2A charger that is included in the box. The OUKITEL WP1 also supports wireless charging, and it comes with 4G LTE connectivity (FDD-LTE B1/3/7/8/20). If you’re interested in purchasing the device, visit the link that is included down below.
