More and more Chinese brands are developing the Yet Another syndrome. The list, which originated with Elephone, now hands brands like Oukitel, Doogee, etc. on it.
After announcing the U8 (review), U9, U10, U6 (in chronological order), Oukitel is now teasing the U2. The U8 was a curved-glass-metal-chassis phone which was fairly impressive, and the U6 is touted to be a super powerful dual screen device.
The U2 that Oukitel is now talking about seems like a phone which will be fairly entry-level, but with a body made up of glass and metal. It’ll come with the MT6735 (most likely in it’s ‘P’ avatar; more info here) and with 8GB of ROM, will sport 1GB of RAM. Oukitel also tell us that the U2 will have only a 5-inch screen and a qHD resolution.
I don’t know what fascination OEMs have with the MT6735 SoC, but it is not cool. There are better options out there, and it is hard to believe there’s no external influence making OEMs ship phones with the MT6735.
Your thoughts on the Oukitel U2 and #YAOP?
