Oukitel WP17 launched with 8,300mAh battery, military-grade durability and more: price, specs



Chinese brand Oukitel launched the WP17 smartphone, a device designed to tackle the toughest challenges without really biting the dust. But its highlight will be the massive 8,300mAh battery which should easily last 3 days with moderate use. That’s bigger than the 7,000mAh cell that Samsung uses in some of its smartphones, the largest we’ve seen on a consumer phone. When it comes to rugged design, the Oukitel WP17 looks like the part thanks to its rugged construction, with the outer edges reinforced with metal and a rubber-like compound. The Oukitel WP17 is designed to withstand drops up to 1.5m and survive a dunk up to 1.5m underwater for 30 minutes.

The Chinese smartphone maker has launched the new rugged phone for $ 399.99 (~ Rs 30,126). However, it will be available to early risers who pre-order the device for just $ 199.99 (~ Rs 15,062).

Oukitel WP17 specifications

The Oukitel WP17 contains a 20: 9 6.78-inch Full HD + display with 90Hz refresh rate. It runs on an octa-core Helio G95 processor from MediaTek, clocked at 2.05 GHz. The processor is mated to a Mali-G76 GPU, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The device is powered by a massive 8,300mAh battery that charges at 18W as we mentioned above. That massive power bank-sized battery means the Oukitel WP17 will last for days straight.

Oukitel WP17 sports a triple camera setup that consists of a 64 MP main lens, 20 MP IR night vision camera and a 2 MP macro sensor. Selfies are handled by a 16-megapixel shooter placed inside a perforated cutout. The smartphone has a MIL-STD-810 certification, a must when it comes to making sustainable smartphones. Besides the military grade durability certification, the Oukitel WP17 is also IP68 / IP69K certified, making it dust and water proof.

Despite its rugged construction, the Oukitel WP17 packs a USB Type-C port for charging, a fingerprint sensor as well as facial recognition, dual SIM support and 4G connectivity. The device is available in black color.
