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.
