Oukitel U7 has a big 5.5-inch display at a low $49.99 price

When not building dual screen smartphones, Oukitel are busy with other projects such as the recently revealed Oukitel U7 costing from just $49.99.

Oukitel are hoping a big 5.5-inch screen and low introductory price will be enough to attract buyers to pick up the Oukitel U7 in an upcoming flash sale.

Flash sales have become a popular method of building hype for Chinese phone makers, but it also offers customers the chance to pick up a new phone at a lower retail price.

The Oukitel U7 will officially cost $69.99 when it is launched, but during an early flash sale the price will be cut buy $20 to only $49.99. At such a low price certain features have had to make way for others, so instead of LTE we have an 8 mega-pixel rear camera (as opposed to 5 mega-pixel on similar priced phones).

Specifications also include a 2000mAh battery (cut to a slim design), 1.3ghz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage and 32GB SD card support, and 5.5-inch 960 x 540 display.

No details of when or where the flash sale will be held, but our guess is early September.

    Yeah 5.5-inch and 960 x 540 … that makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it ?

      I think it wouldn’t make much difference for older people or anybody who is still using a feature phone but would like to switch to a cheap smartphone simply to be able to see some pictures or listen to music. I know I would get one for my father if I can catch the sale. For $50 it’s a really good device. To be honest I would even consider using it myself when I go hiking or camping so my expensive phone is not in danger of being damaged or lost. I think this is a welcome budget device for people who have no desire for pricey powerhouses.
