The cheapest 5G rugged smartphone costs far less than you think

rugged smartphone

Is the premise from the titles true ? We believe so, because the Oukitel WP10 is the cheapest 5G capable Android 10 rugged smartphone currently on the market.

What makes it special and why should I buy it? 5G is here and it works. The WP10 offers a rugged platform for those wanting a durable rugged smartphone based on Android 10. At a price that’s cheaper than the competition. But that’s not all, because the WP10 also has a clever modular design, that uses magnets and POGO connectors for expansion.

How much does it cost? The Oukitel WP10 5G is available from Banggood for $379.99 (about £275/AU$487) until December 27th without any codes. That’s an extra $100 off the current sale price of $469.99. Overall, you get more than 26% off its suggested retail price.

What else should we know? The Oukitel WP10 packs the sort of hardware that we’re accustomed to see in a mid-range smartphone. A Mediatek Dimensity 800 system-on-chip, 8GB of RAM, 128GB onboard storage, a 6.67-inch 2400 x 1080px display, quad (48MP+13MP+2MP+2MP) camera sensors, 16MP front selfie sensor or massive 8000 mAh battery with Type-C connector.

Any cons? We’d love to have 256 GB at this price as well as the wireless charging. And tt 380g it is also far more heavier than we’d expect it to be. Blame it on the huge battery and the near-tablet-sized display. But that’s just nitpicking on the great new rugged smartphone. Hopefully we can lay our hands on it soon so we can review it too.
