While the high-end smartphone segment is a world of ever-increasing prices and incremental upgrades, mid-range phones have been killing it lately. Many companies are striving to give customers the biggest bang for their buck possible, and often times the offers seem to good to be true. However, many of them actually are true.

Such is the case with the new Oukitel K9, which is a budget-oriented phone with a huge display—the “world’s biggest,” in fact, according to Oukitel—an equally massive battery, and a modest price tag to boot.

Colossal display with a small waterdrop-style notch


The biggest differentiating feature of the Oukitel K9 is, well, just how big it is. The phone has a 7.12-inch display, which is almost pushing it past phablets and into tablet territory. Fortunately, however, since the Oukitel K9 has respectably thin bezels, it manages to offer a good screen-to-body ratio and is not as unwieldy as it would have been, had it had thicker bezels.

The display has a 19:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 1080x2244 pixels, and easily dwarfs any other phone you put next to it. Just check out this video from Oukitel to see how big this phone is when compared to some other popular devices:


Battery that lasts for days and respectable specs


The huge display of the Oukitel K9 is powered by an equally impressive 6000mAh battery that the company promises will last for “2-3 days of heavy use on a single charge.” That’s a rather bold promise, but considering that the phone has a low-power Helio CPU and runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, with its new adaptive power mode, the Oukitel K9 is sure to deliver outstanding battery life.

The K9 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 Octa-core CPU with a clock speed of up to 2.3Ghz (which is considerably more power-efficient than the previous generation), backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Around the back, the Oukitel K9 sports a dual-camera setup that combines a 16MP Sony IMX298 main camera with a second snapper that’s used for depth detection. Above the display, in a tiny waterdrop-style notch, resides an 8MP selfie camera with various scene and filter settings.

Killer price


Oukitel K9’s third stand-out feature is its price tag. The phone's pre-sale will kick off this week: if you buy one before May 20, you’ll get it for just $199.99! After the initial promotional period, the Oukitel K9 will retail at $249.99, which is still a lot of bang for your buck, considering the size and battery of the phone.

If you’re eager to get in on the promotion yourself, you can snag one up at a reduced price at Banggood. And since you’re probably already wondering, yes, the Oukitel K9 works perfectly fine in both Europe and the US! It supports the following bands: 2G: 850/900/1800/1900, 3G: 1/2/4/5/8, 4G: FDD1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/19/20 TDD40.

Yes, but most likely won't have VoLTE or WiFi calling.

Looks like the 6T was the design inspiration. Looks nice overall, but way too big. My thought is this will be a China/emerging markets phone only. Looks like you can import it, but there are a million other phones out there, so this one is waaaaaaaayyyyy down on the list.

Here's a game phonearena. We should try to guess which android phone will have no chin first. Winner wins the phone.

Ad blockers really must be dragging down the revenue stream. This perfectly circumvents my multiple ad blocks. Good job PA.
