Oukitel U18 emerges as Android-powered iPhone X clone on the cheap (Promoted)

Following quickly on the heels of its K10 announcement earlier this month, Oukitel is back again with another phone. This time we’re looking at an iPhone X clone in the form of the U18. Yes, it looks nearly identical to Apple’s phone, right down to the notch in the screen.

Featuring a 5.85-inch display at 21:9 aspect ratio, the phone figures to be a slim, but gorgeous experience. With CNC crafted zinc alloy, a 2.5D curved display, and 3D arc design, the handset also calls to mind the Huawei Mate 10 Pro as well.

Powered by Android 7.0, the Oukitel U18 draws its strength from an octa-core MediaTek processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage. The rear finds a fingerprint reader set below a pair of cameras (sony IMC135 16-megapixel and 5-megapixels). Around front is a 13-megapixel sensor for taking selfies and group shots. A 4,000mAh battery ensures the party lasts all day long.
