Back in March, OUKITEL announced its newest “tri-proof” (that is, shock, water and dust) smartphone, the WP5000. After more than a month without word on release, OUKITEL is ready to release it for pre-orders, starting April 17th. The WP5000 is an interesting beast, with a 5.7″ 18:9 display, a 5,200mAh battery, an IP68 rating, and a Helio P25 processor.
The MediaTek Helio P25 is no joke. With eight cores running about 2.3GHz and a 900MHz GPU, it compares favorably with the Snapdragon 835, and even stands up well to the 845. The WP5000 also comes loaded with 6GB RAM, more than enough to handle anything you can throw at it – even the new, wildly popular PUBG Mobile.
At 5,200mAh, the WP5000 comes equipped with a larger battery than any major smartphone on the market. It should last most users between 2 and 3 days of normal use, and a 9V/2A quick-charger will take it from 0 to 100% in just over 2 hours.
Not content with just an IP68 for the phone itself, OUKITEL also included an IP68-rated speaker inside the phone, to ensure a centralized voice experience that always sounds clear.
The WP5000 comes with a 16MP dual-sensor rear camera and an 8MP front camera, both made by Samsung. Given the phone’s tri-proof nature, one could use these cameras to take pictures in any environment – even under water.

By combining GPS and a geomagnetic sensor, the WP5000 will help you find your way even in mountains, caverns, or under full canopy cover.
The OUKITEL WP5000 comes in black with three accent colors – black, orange, or green. It’s going to retails for $299.99, but as per OUKITEL’s usual, if you pre-order the phone you’ll receive a pretty significant discount. In addition, OUKITEL is holding a giveaway on its Facebook page – check it out for details.
