OUKITEL is one of the many brands that have come to this edition of the Mobile World Congress 2019, to present to the general public some of their new devices for this year. Among the different models stand out two smartphones with great battery, like the Oukitel K9 and the Oukitel K12, although none of them has been able to surpass the Oukitel K10, that we have had the opportunity to have in our hands. In this way also manages to surpass its predecessor, the Oukitel K10000 Pro.
Although the K10 is not a rugged smartphone, it comes with a fairly rigid and sturdy casing that is 13.5 mm thick, which can be confusing. The truth is that the design of this terminal is original, with its “octagonal” shape and frames made from a magnesium alloy, which give greater strength to the phone.
On the back there is a small shield-shaped module that protrudes, with a double sensor and underneath the fingerprint reader that unlocks in 0.1 seconds. While the dual LED flash has been placed to one side. There’s also the Face ID feature, which allows you to unlock your phone with your face.
The manufacturer has bet for the Oukitel K10 an AUO panel with a diagonal of 6 inches, which has a resolution FHD+ of 2160 x 1080 pixels. In addition, the screen boasts an 18:9 aspect ratio, which is now so fashionable. Overall, this panel provides excellent sharpness, with very natural colour reproduction, inviting you to watch “big time” any YouTube video.
Moreover, this terminal guarantees a fast and fluid performance with the presence of an eight-core processor Helio P23 (Mediatek 6763), which works at a maximum speed of 2.0 GHz. This CPU is combined with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The graphic section is well served by a Mali-G71 GPU. The equipment works under Android 7.1, which will be very familiar to most users.
One of the peculiarities of the Oukitel K10 is that it integrates no less than 4 cameras. On the one hand, a double rear sensor where the main 21 megapixel, is backed by another 8 MP lens. As for the front dual camera, it has 13 MP accompanied by an 8 MP sensor. Both cameras in addition to the popular Bokeh effect, bring together other much appreciated features such as Autofocus, face detection and HDR, to name just a few.
At the bottom of this Oukitel smartphone, we see a USB Type-C port that also functions as an audio output. That’s why you’ll have to use one of the adapters that comes in the box. In addition to Wi-Fi connectivity under the 802.11a/b/g/n protocol and Bluetooth 4.2, the K10 is also compatible with NFC, so you can make payments with your mobile.
But the strong point of this Oukitel K10, which takes it to another level, is an impressive 11,000 mAh battery, which endures a full day watching videos or up to four days talking non-stop. It could also reach 42 days in stand-by mode. The only “but” is that this battery means a substantial increase in weight. But for many users it will be worth it. It should also be noted that this battery integrates an innovative rapid charge system that allows the terminal to recharge at a rate of 5V and 5A, which can fully charge the phone in approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes. With 5 minutes of charging, you can be talking for two and a half hours more.
The Oukitel K10 can be purchased from $249.99. Two models are currently available, one completely in black and the other combining black with gold details.
