The Oukitel U15 Pro is one of the cheapest octa-core smartphones you can find

Chinese brand Oukitel has announced an interesting new smartphone which aims to hit a competitive price to features ratio. It's called the Oukitel U15 Pro and it's among the world's cheapest octa-core handsets. The Oukitel U15 Pro features a metal body with capacitive keys and arc glass design. It has a 5.5-inch, 720p resolution LCD display manufactured by Sharp. The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek MTK6753 chipset that features an octa-core processor clocked to 1.3GHz, along with the ARM Mali-T720 MP3 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage.

This is an adequate mid-range configuration with plenty of RAM for multitasking that should offer satisfactory everyday performance, unless you are into games with heavy 3D graphics – in which case, the experience might not be as smooth as you'd like. Additionally, the handset features a fast fingerprint scanner on the back panel that supposedly takes a millisecond to unlock it. There's also a 13MP camera on the back panel, along with a 2MP front cam – but both are able to take 16MP and 5MP shots, respectively, thanks to software interpolation.

Featuring a 3000mAh capacity battery, the Oukitel U15 Pro runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and comes with several interesting software features, such as taking a quick screenshot by swiping three fingers, fingerprint capture and remote capture for the camera, and hotknot share. There's Dual SIM, Dual Standby connectivity and the handset supports 2G, 3G, and 4G networks, along with GPS, Bluetooth, FM Radio, and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. However, worldwide LTE support isn't guaranteed, as the smartphone is limited to bands 1, 3, 7, 8, and 20.

The Oukitel U15 Pro is priced at $140, but Oukitel will organize flash sales with different retailers where the smartphone will cost $120. At present, it can be bought via GearBest at the original $120 price by following this link.

Nope, not even close. The Moto G4 Amazon edition is within $10 of this phone, and that boasts a Snapdragon chip, a better processor, and a proven name within the industry. Say what you will about Amazon atop Android, but I'd rather take that over a phone where its designers couldn't even bother to line up the flash with the camera.

Xiaomi's redmi 3 have much better processor (SD616) for the same price, or RN3pro with SD650 for $30-$40 extra money... LeEco Le2 have deca-core helio-X20 for $200ish

Another throw away device. Expecting to make $20 in profit on each unit a very successful business model.
