Oukitel K6000 Premium promises to launch with Helio X20


letv le2 helio x20

In a surprising turn of events, it is Oukitel who are claiming to have one of the first Mediatek Helio X20 waiting in the ranks.

Oukitel made a surprise announcement today stating that their next model, an update of the current K6000, will launch with the next gen Mediatek MT6797 chipset, aka the Mediatek Helio X20. So far we haven’t had chance to try a Helio X20, but we’re pretty impressed with the first Helio X10 that ships in the LeTV Le 1s, and other mid-range flagships.

The more powerful chipset isn’t the only update to the Oukitel K6000 Premium, the phone will also receive a 2K 5.5-inch AMOLED display, Sony IMX 230 rear 21 mega-pixel camera, 8 mega-pixel IMX219 front camera, 4GB RAM, 32GB memory and up will accept 128GB SD cards.

Like the original K6000, the new Premium version will ship with a 6000mAh battery with 9V 2A fast charge feature.

If those specs sound impressive to you then you aren’t the only ones. This jump to a Helio X20 and flagship hardware seems out of the ordinary for Oukitel, who until this point have focussed on budget and big battery phones.

For Oukitel to have scored the X20 ahead of larger brands like Vivo, Xiaomi and Meizu seems doubtful, so don’t expect the K6000 Premium to launch before the Chinese Spring Festival celebrations.

    This would be perfect with a 6″ screen, 2k resolution 5.5″ display is pointless.

      why is everyone suggesting 6 inches …??
      i thought the general public here HATED anything above 4.7″ :p !

        Well this year has been all about 5.5″ phones and 6″ ones vanished. Now suddenly we have a plethora of them either released or announced, good times at last. There will always be kids on here complaining cos they can’t handle more than 4″ ?

          yeah .. i was getting tired of those crybabies … blabbering “why isnt this 4.7 inches” or “5 would have been perfect”
          and im like wtf … im vying for a mega screen and these people want phones designed for ants !

            You don’t even have a smartphone! Remember you are virgin.
            5″, 5’2″ are OK for a smartphone. 4’7″ too small. 6″ is for aliens

              but 6″ is honestly cool !

    I’m actually interested in both premium and pro version, with the latter more suitable on my normal use… I’m waiting for reviews!
    Anyway, is the pro version out already? Because if so, i can’t really remember it, and that would be strange :-/

      tranquillo, la pro sarà l’unica che vedrai, non farti dilaniare dal dubbio 😀 col ciufolo che oukitel può permettersi di uscire con un x20 prima dei colossi, fuffa marketing.

        Ma ci mancherebbe altro! 😀 Si ripeterà la storia dell’x10: prima sui flagship delle grandi aziende, poi sui loro midrange, ed alla fine, mesi e mesi dopo, qualche piccola azienda inizierà a fare pubblicità ad un suo modello che uscirà in un futuro imprecisato con quel processore (vedasi elephone, bluboo ed altri).
        Potrebbe parlarsene anche per natale dell’anno prossimo… Ma io sono un tipo paziente 😀 anche uscisse domani, comunque non lo prenderei per mesi e mesi, non prima di recensioni, pareri degli altri utenti e deprezzamenti vari…

        Sarò strano io, ma a me l’hype non sale per comprare le cose, ma solo per vederle recensite ed iniziare a valutarle xD

        PS: ah, male che vada, se il pro è ad un prezzo onesto potrei preferirlo in ogni caso rispetto al premium! lol

    Very good move from Oukitel. First flagship phone to actually come with HUGE battery size. I am interested more in the Premium model. I hope they are not gonna take too much time to release it. I am going for this after buying the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. How I wish they had used a 6″ display but 5.5″ will do though.

        Well I’m waiting on a cheap upgrade. May last phone was a 13/5MP camera Jiayu S3, so the next phone as to be better. Nearly every phone released is like midrange specs. It’s crazy.

        • Marco Lancaster
          November 27, 2015

          To be honest a Vowney with 2K screen, will not be a big upgrade to Jiayu S3, the 2K screen will drain out all the power of Helio X10.

            My past examination of benchmarks is that the GPU dosn’t struggle to draw up the desktop. Regarding 3D rendering, there maybe a slight decrease of about 0 – 15%. Sum up the slight loss in speed to the benefits of clear precise graphics. Also consider that when you cast the screen to your HDTV you will be getting the 2K resolution, not 1080p where you will see the pixelation of the vectors and textures.

    THATS IS PHUCKING AMAZING !
    OUKITEL FTW !
    WUNDERBAR!
    SEHR GUT !

    The Battery size is soooo FITTING and APPROPRIATE for THAT sorta hardware… finally a 2k phone that will NOT be blasted for inadequacies in battery factor.

    (i kno , i kno …. won’t be cheap … but that spec set is bound to have bigwigs at mi , vivo, meizu and others sweating hard!)

    I believe this k6000 premium will be pretty much vaporwave, or maybe we’ll see it when x20 will become the standard for second-tier brands, so not before 6 to 10 months from now maybe, they can’t afford it now, regarldess what they claim.
    The pro is the real version that we’ll see soon.

      November 26, 2015

      Just looking at what’s happening this year with the x10 and elephone/bluboo announcements, everyone should be able to understand how it’ll go with the x20 as well

      • Joel Adames
        November 26, 2015

        You are both right but you got to admit this is the proof of concept of what major brands should be doing with their flagships … Excellent spec’s that come out with a battery to last at least a day and a half of REAL HEAVY use.

        • MattD
          November 26, 2015

          No one here is saying you’re not right, actually I’ve been searching a well-spec’d phone with a huge battery for a long long…LONG time… If you go back to all of the other battery-phone news on this site, you can always read the very same comment of mine, like “why always mt6735p?! Why not a more powerful soc?” 😀

          Anyway, what we are saying is that to announce now a phone like that is pure gimmick: it will be released many months ahead from now, so it’s just a “hey, we will release this interesting phone at some point next year, so wait for it, don’t buy anything else!”… In other words, elephone style! You already know what they did with the vonwey… Here it’s the same!

    2K is a useless feature even with 6000mAh. And it becomes even less premium without backlit buttons, multicolor notification LED, big black bezels ….

    They just leave out to many details…. At least for the price they’re asking…
