As some smartphone manufacturers hem and haw over trading battery life for the bragging rights of having a super-thin handset, Oukitel finds itself going in a very different direction, actively embracing the availability of some massive batteries and building phones that aren’t afraid to have a little heft to them – so long as users get some killer battery life in the process. Last month we were first introduced to the Oukitel K6000, and while we didn’t know much at the time, we were told to expect some crazy battery life once again. Now the full picture on the K6000 is becoming clear, and we’re looking at not just one phone, but a series of three models.
Oukitel has come up with the K6000 itself, the K6000 Pro, and the K6000 Premium. All three models are 5.5-inchers featuring 6000mAh batteries (hence the model number), and all support fast charging.
As to where they differ, the short answer is “everywhere else.” The K6000 gets a 720p LCD screen, while the Pro steps up 1080p resolution, and the Premium to a 2K-class OLED panel. All three run MediaTek chips, but with more powerful silicon under the hood of the progressively higher-end handsets. We see RAM move from 2GB, to 3GB, to 4GB for the Premium, and while the first two models get 16GB storage, the Premium enjoys 32GB. Camera components similarly get upgraded from model to model, with the Pro and Premium picking up Sony sensors.
We still don’t have pricing on the full line just yet, but the base K6000 is already selling for a very affordable $120.
