Oukitel, a Chinese handset company, has unveiled a new smartphone
featuring a 10000mAh battery. Notably, the company was rumoured to be
working on a smartphone with huge 10000mAh battery since July.
Priced at $239.99 (approximately
Rs. 16,000), the Oukitel K10000 is now available to pre-order via a
US-based e-commerce retailer. The company is also offering an
introductory discount on the smartphone and is selling it at $199.99
(approximately Rs. 13,500). According to the online retailer, the K10000
will ship starting January 21.
Notably, the company previously
launched the Oukitel K6000 smartphone back in October featuring a 6000mAh battery. Unfortunately, the
company has not revealed plans to launch the Oukitel K10000 in more
markets as of now.
Apart from a large 10000mAh battery, the new
smartphone from Oukitel supports reverse charging, which allows users to
utilise the handset as a power bank to charge other devices. The
company claims that the battery on the Oukitel K10000 can charge three
iPhone 6s Plus smartphones.
For specifications, the Oukitel K10000
runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and is a dual-SIM dual standby smartphone
with 4G LTE functionality on both SIM card slots. The handset supports
dual Micro-SIMs. The online retailer's listing confirms that the handset
supports Indian LTE bands as well.
It features a 5.5-inch HD
(720x1280 pixel) IPS display, and is powered by a 1GHz quad-core
MediaTek MT6735 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM. The Oukitel K10000 packs
16GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded via microSD card (up to
32GB). It features an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera, and a
2-megapixel front camera. The rear camera supports HDR, face detection,
face beauty, Panorama shot, and anti-shake. Connectivity options include
GPRS/ EDGE GPS/ A-GPS, 3G, Micro-USB, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. It measures
143x77x9mm, and weighs 184 grams.
