Oukitel might not be mainstream just yet but the company is one of the best in the industry especially at making affordable smartphones with rugged hardware. The same goes with the new Oukitel WP8 Pro which is one of the best device for those who likes to be outgoing as well as adventurous because that’s what the rugged smartphone is made for.
The device is built tough with a body that can withstand harsh situations no matter what you put the device through. Do not forget it gets certified for the IP9K which makes it resistant to a number of things.
Even though it’s a tough smartphone, it still come with some pretty cool features among which is its 6.5-inch display but it’s of course an LCD IPS screen but that is not drawback when you’re getting a massive 5000mAh juice to power the device and it’s Octa-core MediaTek Helio A25 chipet as well as NFC all which are packed into an affordable yet securely rugged smartphone.
The IPR9K rating of thte Oukitel WP8 Pro is a nice reason to give it a try when it finally land in the stores. And speaking of the rating, the IP69K makes the device resistant to both heat and dust and it’s the highest IP rating you’ll get on a smartphone .
Interesting specifications includes a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which isn’t really amazing but that gets the job done especially since it can be expanded with an external TF card but then there is a 16MP triple rear camera setup with the 5,000mAh battery of course.
Aside that, it has a not-so-bad design specifications such as the side-mounted fingerprint sensor, barometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope and electronic compass among others.
Like some other rugged smartphones, the Oukitel WP8 Pro also features a special customizable button that can be programmed for a number of specific applications like underwater camera mode, emergency calls, or other short cuts.
