OUKITEL has just announced a 3G version of one of its existing smartphones, so that it can lower its price even further. The OUKITEL C12 Pro was announced back in September last year, and it supported 4G LTE, well, this new variant does not, it will limit its users to 3G connectivity. The name of this new variant of the device is simply the “OUKITEL C12”, and the company confirmed that this variant of the device will go on sale next week.
This handset will look the same as the OUKITEL C12 Pro. The phone will include two vertically-aligned cameras on the back, while an LED flash will be placed right beside them. A fingerprint scanner will sit on the back of the device as well, along with the phone’s loudspeaker, and OUKITEL’s branding. The back side of the phone will also be curved.
On the right side, you will notice the volume up, volume down, and power / lock buttons, while a SIM card tray will be accessible from the left. A rather wide notch will be included at the top of this phone’s display, while the phone will also ship with a “chin” below the display. The OUKITEL C12’s display will sport rounded corners.
In terms of specs, you can expect to see a 6.18-inch 996 x 480 display on the OUKITEL C12, as the phone will feature a 19:9 display aspect ratio. The phone will be made out of polycarbonate with a layer of UV celluloid pain for better grip. A 3,300mAh battery will also be included in the package, and considering the phone’s display resolution, and processor, it should be more than enough to get pretty much anyone through the day.
