The new rugged OUKITEL WP5000 has been available since last week and it’s looking pretty good with the strong rugged body and decent specs. And because it’s an IP68 certified model the makers are trying to promote it as the ideal phone for the adventurers and even posted the question if the phone would survive in the extreme weather conditions like in Himalayas or North/South pole.
Of course it’s pretty tricky (and let’s face it, slightly unnecessary) to send an expedition to prove just this point, so they decided just to simulate such environment. And put the OUKITEL WP5000 to the test with a constant -20℃ for more than 16.5 hours. Of course such cold didn’t cause any issues to the rugged warrior, who just shrugged and moved on. It’s also fairly decently specced with Helio P25 octa-core processor, 6GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage and 5200 mAh big battery.
And there is even a chance to get this tri-proof smartphone for free, all you have to do is go to “freebies & reviews” in the Aliexpress App in the main interface and apply. Or you can of course grab a piece during the initial flash sale, because it’s priced only at $269.99 in the official Oukitel Aliexpress store.
