The Oukitel C17 Pro: triple camera, huge battery, insanely low price
Oukitel has revealed a brand-new entry level smartphone that focuses on bringing slim design and a multi-camera experience to the bargain-priced tier. The handset in question is the Oukitel C17 Pro and — between the 2nd and 9th of September — you can get it for the flash sale price of $99.99 (retail price to be $139.99). Let's see what the phone has to offer!
The Oukitel C17 Pro is a slim and shiny device. Its materials emulate the appearance of metal and glass, though it's built of good old plastic. This will keep it light and easy to handle as well as help it survive the occasional drop better than a glass phone can. It is available in three distinct colors: Sunrise (red-ish), Twilight (blue gradient), and Night (black).
It sports a 6.35-inch screen with a ratio of 19.5:9 and a resolution of 720x1560 pixels (HD+). The display is stretched edge-to-edge and has a tiny cutout for the selfie camera at the top-left. The handset is powered by the MediaTek Helio P23 — an octa-core processor capable of ticking at 2 GHz. We have 4 GB of RAM — a generous amount for the $100-tier — and 64 GB of storage space, which can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 128 GB.
The triple camera module on the back features a 13 MP main sensor made by Sony, a 5 MP sensor with an ultra-wide lens, and a 2 MP assistant sensor for depth-sensing. Of course, we've got the popular bokeh camera mode as well as a pro manual mode on the Camera app.
All of this is powered by a rather huge 3,900 mAh battery, which should keep the lights on for quite a while. As for unlocking — we've got a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back and face unlock via the phone's front camera. The Oukitel C17 Pro comes with Android 9 Pie out of the box and no bloatware to deviate from the core experience.
The phone can be had for the promo price of $99.99 from Oukitel's official store page on AliExpress. After the 9th of September, the C17 Pro will go back to its retail price of $139.99.
