If you are looking for a rugged phone you can toss around without worrying how it might land, listen to this.
Chinese brand Oukitel, which is known for producing rugged phones, is preparing to release another one. It’s called the WP2 and it will be a successor of Oukitel’s original rugged phone, the K1000 Max.
And like the K10000 Max and WP5000 before it, the WP2 will be marketed as a tri-proof smartphone. This means, the device will boast IP68 certification, as well as being dust-proof and shockproof. Oh, yes and it will feature a massive 10,000 mAh battery.
Oukitel WP2 shows up in first video
Oukitel has recently teased its upcoming device in a video which shows the WP2 taking on the elements. Combining polystyrene ebonite and polyethylene flexible glue, the phone brings exceptional damage resistance to water, scratches and bumps.
The video briefly demonstrates the tri-proof qualities of the phone including being waterproof, dust-proof and shock-proof.
We have no news to share regarding specs, but information on the matter should become available in the next few weeks. So stay tuned.
According to Oukitel’s product team, the WP2 will be ready to go official around the end of August. So if you’re on the market for a rugged handset, you might want to wait for Oukitel’s upcoming device.
Alternatively, if you’re in a hurry to make a purchase, the company’s WP5000 is still available to buy. For example, the device is available on AliExpress for approximately $219.
The phone offers the services of a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It’s powered by an Helio P25, backed up by a hefty 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The WP5000 also takes advantage of a dual 16MP+5MP camera on the back.
But unlike the upcoming WP2, the WP5000 features a smaller 5,200 mAh battery. It also ships with the outdated Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, while the WP2 will probably have Android Oreo on board.
