OUKITEL is a relatively prolific Android handset maker that has specialized for quite some time in developing rugged devices in the mid-range with oversized batteries at a reasonable cost. It’s fair to say there hasn’t been a lot of change in those devices over the years, with each successive device bringing refinements or placing emphasis on a particular attribute meant to cater to a very specific audience. That continues with the company’s latest mobile gadget, the OUKITEL WP2.
This time around, OUKITEL has set its sights on customers that need a battery that keeps going for days at a time and in a package that won’t break when they take it to work or out into nature.
The design and display

The device measurements back that up, at 176.6 x 85.3 x 16.5mm and 360 grams, with OUKITEL seemingly aiming for the large-hands end of the market. For context, the display is only set at 6-inches with the WP2 but the overall diagonal size is at around 7.7-inches. It’s also over half an inch thick.
The display OUKITEL chose for its WP2 is set at a laudable 2,160 x 1,080 resolution at an 18:9 ratio with 403 pixels-per-inch and that’s topped with Gorilla Glass for crack and scratch protection.
