Oukitel K6000 presale means the sooner you book your phone, the cheaper it is


1445043725153-P-3272357Upcoming Chinese brands take to some interesting marketing tactics to get attention. This time round, it’s newcomer Oukitel who’s up to some antics of its own.

The Oukitel K6000 (i.e., ‘the 6000mAh battery phone’) is on pre-sale now. The pre-sale is an interesting one; pre-sale buyers usually get the product at a discounted price (at least lower than full retail price), which sure is the case here, but there’s more.

The pre-sale is designed in such a way that the sooner you book a phone, the cheaper it turns out for you. For instance, from today till November 1st, the K6000 will be $109.99. From November 2-6, it’ll get a $10 bump in pricing, i.e., be 119.99. This trend ($10 price bump every 5 days) will go on till the phone costs $139.99 after November 11th.

Pretty interesting indeed. Refer to the picture below for reference.

The K6000, besides the aforementioned battery, has a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720p display with 2.5D curved glass on top, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera (interpolated, most likely from an 8 mega-pixel sensor), a 5 mega-pixel front-facing camera, ‘flash charging’ support (a 5 minute charge claimed to give 2 hours talktime) along with support for reverse charging.

    Fix errors in the text. It’s mostly November, not October. 🙂

    Gizchina marketing is the most effective ; )

    There was a limited number (600?) of the $109 ones which sold out earlier today. Jumped to $119 already

    The cheapest price is not to buy it at all

    they always do it when the phone won’t meet the expectations,so you buy the phone before it gets reviewed.

    i don’t know if this is what’s happening with Oukitel, but i usually wait to read Gizchina reviews and their readers feedbacks.

      This seems to be an Everbuying rather than general Oukitel promotion. Still a good saving and made it cheaper than K4000 for a few hours at least.

      I might buy one as a secondary device after reviews of course. Had bought a Bluboo x550(along side a oukitel u8) used it for less then a week, it fell from me at an average waist height and the Display+glass got totally cracked. Now it rests in peace inside a drawer and I don’t think I will ever repair it cause U know “China”

        my phone fell several times and nothing happened until one day it fell from my cargo shorts, so let’s say… 2 feet or even less.
        it cracked the tempered glass protector, it cracked my screen and even the capacitative buttons.
        so it’s all about how it falls.

        i fixed it because the phone wasn’t even a year old and i can still use it later as a backup phone (now i understand the importance of having one).

        im seriously considering the new LeTV, for that price … how can you say no?

          I always have a backup phone for this reason. Usually it’s also my travel phone.

          I bough my wife a doogee DG550 in april which fell several, I mean many many times +15. I took her to fall on itit while she sick to crack the screen and even though it worked for a day or 2 the touch panel died the next day so had the whole thing fixed at around $35 bucks parts+labor, sure we had to wait a good 3 weeks for parts to come from China???

            i prefer to fix too, plus i enjoy it doing. 🙂

          Your pockets are less than 2 feet off the ground? Were you kneeling? ?

          Yes it’s a very attractive device with the right price, will be waiting for reviews

      I would be very wary buying a phone like this without reviews. Having said that I might be the Guniea Pig on this one…

        I got one at $109, but on slow boat postage to avoid duty. They only have a 150 at each price point, so it’s back up to $139 until Nov 1st.

    I won’t buy it because it’s the MT6735 chip, the big battery should be the more powerful hardware.

    • balcobomber25
      October 27, 2015

      The big battery plus the 6735 means this thing has the potential to go 3 days without a charge. The 6735 was made to be an efficient low power chip.

        What you’re saying is undoubtedly true, but i think it wasn’t his point. The fact is that there are plenty of phones with those same specs, but there isn’t one with a beast battery with a powerful soc to match! Many (and by “many” i obviously mean “myself and maybe there is someone else, dunno, don’t care”) would like a battery phone not for the “2-3 charging-free days” thing, but just for going through the day without caring of battery running out of juices… I’m not a mobile gamer, so probably mt6735 would do anyways, but if i was to spend my money, i’d just rather a soc that I’m SURE can handle everything I’d throw at it…

        • balcobomber25
          October 28, 2015

          Anyone of the MT6795 phones would be perfect for you then and many of them can easily handle a day to 1.5 days with a single charge if they have at least 3000mAh.

            Yeah i think latest socs are more power-efficient, but I’m not a easy client to handle xD
            actually my phone provides me 5.5-6 hours of screen time, and some days it’s enough, but other days I’m like “battery is around 25%, better don’t do this (3g browsing/watching videos, taking random pictures, light gaming ecc ecc) because i could run out of battery and i don’t know if I’m going to need it later”… And it’s that kind of worries i would like to avoid with my next phone, although i know I’m just overcomplaining

              lol I’m the same way but what has pleased me the most is quick charge. A 10 minute charge gets me an extra 25-30%.

            • MattD
              October 28, 2015

              Yeah, i’m sure quick charge would be a bless for me! I could charge almost the entire battery while setting things for my night tea streak, having enough battery to kill time during my sleepless nights… It would be a dream! *.* lol

              I charge mine in the morning while having coffee, 40 minutes and it’s 100% and good for the day.

              …yep, the next phone i’ll buy will definitely have quick charge! 😀
