The makers wanted to make sure you can bring the phone everywhere and stay classy. No matter if in the wilderness or at a business meeting. So Oukitel WP17 has a nice elegant body with fine shape and shiny cover. The aesthetics are of a great importance, which is pretty rare for a rugged phone in general. But this one is really quite a looker.
All the rugged qualities
Every rugged phone needs the rugged certifications and Oukitel WP17 certainly delivers. Sporting all IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-G810 you are covered for almost anything. It can sustain being submerged in 1.5m water depth for 30 minutes, it’s fully dustproof and shatterproof on top of that. Getting this one in trouble will be really quite a challenge.
Mediatek Helio G95 is among the top powerful 4G processors out there and guarantees smooth running of the phone. And with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage you will have enough memory for anything. Strong performance is a given with Oukitel WP17.
Rugged phones also need long endurance, because you never know, where you will end in a wild. And the 8300 mAh battery delivers comfortable two or more days of heavy usage. You can even double that with a special extreme mode enabled. And 18W charging even such monster battery can be charged fairly quickly. Additionally, reverse OTG charging is available for emergency use.
Big 90 Hz display
And the screen of the phone is not going to disappoint either. With big 6.78-inch FHD+ 20.5:9 panel you can really enjoy all the multimedia or browsing to full extent. And the display also has 90 Hz refresh rate as one of the first rugged phones to do so. Offering a great smooth experience with no lag at all.
64MP main camera and IR night-vision
Sturdy rugged phones are usually not the camera powerhouses, but Oukitel WP17 is different. It offers 64MP main sensor capable of 4K video capture, so even your underwater videos can look stunning. And 2MP macro sensor can capture all the tiny details. But the main star is the 20MP IR night-vision camera with 4 adjustable IR emitters and sight range of up to 20 meters. Being able to pierce the darkness with your camera can come in handy in many ocassions.
Android 11 with global LTE bands
Modern phone also needs a modern system and Oukitel WP17 is running the latest Android 11 OS with all the benefits. It also supports all global 4G network banks, so you will be able to travel all around the world and stay connected. And dual SIM + TF slots offer the needed versatility.
