Oukitel have released 2 videos this week to a) show off the durability of the Oukitel U7’s screen and 2) show that you can infect boil noodles with your phone. Keep reading.
Generally a phone is used in the kitchen to chat to friends, look up a recipe or take photos of your latest culinary creation. Pretty much any smartphone can handle those tasks, but Oukitel’s models can handle a little more and get their hands dirty in the kitchen.
First up with have the Oukitel U7, a $69.99 smartphone, doing its own impression of a chopping board. The idea of the video is to prove that the screen’s 5.5 inch surface is resistant to even sharp knives. Good to know if you ever find yourself without a place to slice carrots.
Gizchina News of the week
The second video is a little more interesting and shows 10 x Oukitel K10000 phones hooked up to an electric hot plate producing enough power to boil water and cook noodles. It’s not really surprising that 10 phones, each with a 10,000mAh battery installed is able to produce the power needed to boil water, but it’s none the less impressive to see.
Oukitel are no strangers to going that extra mile when promoting their latest phones. In a past video the company fried a battery pack with a flamethrower to prove that it wouldn’t explode at high temperatures.
Do videos like this increase the possibility of you buying a smartphone or are these ‘hype’ videos getting a little old now?
they don get old, they do get SHAMELESS hahaha
if the specs, build design an d price are good but similar to other devices then yes. This will make me choose them above others because you get a better look at the quality and endurance
for something new i do like, love, like a lot etc etc the design of the Oukitel K10000 but i would love it even better if they used at least Redmi note 2 ore Jiayu S3 specs to use that delicuous baterry –……— what dou you think??? am i wrong???
They eat some pretty weird stuff in China, but Infected Boil Noodles… Ugghhh.
They surely are fun to watch and what I like is at least you get to see what the device looks like. All these presales only with photoshopped pictures are really annoying.
If the design and performance of the Oukitel K10000 is good, it sure will come into my budget once released.
You can cook with it but still… can’t touch this!
Waste of valuable resources and environment pollution. They should take the money and invest into engineering for proper Translations, ROM, support etc.
I already own the Oukitel U10 – but sometimes i feel sometimes they do not what they should do…
I think it is just a marketing stunt, my Oukitel U7 cracked after 3 days, just dropped on the fllor from my hands and the screen cracked in tiny pieces.
