At a time when smartphone prices have reached absurdly high levels, more and more people are wondering whether it makes sense to spend such money on a smartphone. Users accustomed to flagships will probably never decide for a budget leader, but for customers with a less affluent wallet, this may be the only option available. And the Oukitel C16 Pro offers a really good specification at its price.
The smartphone is equipped with a 5.71″ display, 19:9 aspect ratio and HD+ resolution of 1520×720 pixels with a water drop cut-out. According to the manufacturer’s declaration, the screen covers 86% of the front panel, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Oukitel C16 Pro renderings provided by the manufacturer did not fully reflect the actual appearance of the product – unless 2.5D glass actually masks the thicker frames and wider chin so effectively.
The heart of the smartphone is a quad-core (4x ARM Cortex-A53; 12 nm) MediaTek MT6761P 2.0 GHz processor with IMG PowerVR GE8300 660 MHz. The SoC label indicates that it is a Helio A22 version. There are also 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in memory, which can be expanded with a microSD card with a maximum capacity of 128 GB.
On the back of the Oukitel C16 Pro there is a fingerprint reader and dual 8 MP + 2 MP camera (for collecting depth data), and on the front a single 5 Mpix camera, which is also responsible for the function of recognizing the user’s face and unlocking access to the smartphone. There is also an FM radio, a Dual SIM, a micro USB port and a 3.5 mm headphone connector on board.
Oukitel C16 Pro works under Android 9.0 Pie (in a “clean” version), and its power supply is provided by a replaceable battery with a capacity of 2600 mAh (charging 5V/1A 5W). The smartphone has dimensions 146.4×70.3×9.5 mm and will be available in two colors: black and purple.
The regular price of this model was set at $89.99, From 11th to 24th June, however, the smartphone will be sold a little cheaper, although the manufacturer has not yet revealed for how much exactly.
