OUKITEL recently released their big display & big battery smartphone – the K8 – in early August on OUKITEL’s official AliExpress store. The smartphone has now gained a lot of fans favor since released due to its mid-range specs and cost-effective price tag. The continuous evolution of full screen technology has brought a 18:9 full display into the K8 which makes the smartphone standout from the competition, bringing a large screen size in a smaller footprint which is easier to hold in hand. The K8 supposedly is the perfect combination of the 18:9 elongated screen ratio, with a big display and a large battery to power up the entire thing. Or at least that was on paper up until today, which is when we can actually check out the smartphone in an unboxing and hands-on video; let’s have a look!
OUKITEL K8 Unboxing
As we previously mentioned, the OUKITEL K8 combines a big 6-inch display with 2160×1080 resolution and a 5000mAh big battery to the slim inside a thin body that is comfortable to hold in one hand. Narrower bezels, virtual keys and a long slim body, make the smartphone feel in the hand as big as an older 5.5-inch phone.
Packing wise, inside the box the K8 will include an USB cable, an user manual, a 5V/2A charger, a silicone case, a warranty card and a SIM card pin. In addition to the large display and battery the phone also sports a large amount of memory at 4GB/64GB and a high-quality rear camera setup with a 13.0MP +2MP combo.
As the OUKITEL K8 is set to go on presale on Banggood starting next week August 20th, the phone maker released the full specifications for the smartphone.
