Oukitel tell fans there will be no #bendgate issues with the Ouktiel U9


OUKITEL U9 Kindo Thranduil

After it came to light that a certain new flagship bends quite easily, other manufacturers have been quick to point out the same does not affect their devices.

Oukitel are a new name for 2015 and as such they are trying to make the best impression possible to customers who may not yet know them.

Their newest device will be the Oukitel U9 (Kindo Thranduil), a rather good-looking Android phone which will feature a dual glass 2.5D design with rounded alloy chassis, similar in design to the latest Vivo phones (but at a much affordable price).

To ensure that their phone won’t bend in your pocket, Oukitel have told us that the alloy chassis of the U9 is manufactured using a Nano Molding Technology (NMT). From what we understand of this, NMT is a process that injects resin in to the cavities of an aerospace alloy frame to make a stronger, tougher and lighter structure.

The NMT process also creates a smoother finish, and is apparently better for the environment too.

It certainly is very impressive to see Chinese phone makers focus more on design and build rather than just all out specifications this year, and we have to say it is equally impressive that a new phone maker is taking its impact on the environment seriously.

The Oukitel U9 is expected to launch later this month with a 5.5-inch FHD display, 3GB RAM and octacore Mediatek processor.

      Might just be an codename used during the development process of the phone, like how different Xiaomi phones have names like Cancro and Pisces.

      what happened with gearbest. First time I am buying from there and the customer support seems quite poor. They also didn’t ship the “in stock” phone after one week

    Even if it did bend something tells me they wouldn’t get the publicity to make another #bendgate.

    This doesn’t say anything its a picture of a guy holding a frame who might or might not be putting pressure on it. A video would have been more convincing but even then it’s just an empty frame its a lot different when all of the components are resting on top and in between it. But I do love that they are trolling Elephone, thats kind of hysterical.
