The crazy expensive iPhone X is still quite a success on the market, but there are some interesting chinese “clones” of its design coming too. One of the affordable ones is the newly released OUKITEL U18 which resembles iPhone X’s front and Huawei Mate 10 Pro’s back. The obvious similarity of U18 and iPhone X is mainly the design, however, the notch on the two devices is different and U18 still has a narrow black area on the bottom part, but the usable area is mostly the same.
The back cover is a totally difference for each of them though, especially with the position of the rear camera. OUKITEL U18 puts the dual-lens rear camera top middle, while iPhone X top left. And also when talking about the security features, iPhone X relies only on the Face ID, while OUKITEL U18 offers both facial recognition unlock and traditional fingeprint scanner.
