This Chinese dual-screen smartphone promises up to 120 hours of battery life when using only the secondary E-Ink display and will begin shipping next month.
Codrut Nistor,

Manufacturers like Yota Devices and UMi already released dual screen smartphones, so Oukitel is not the first manufacturer to go down that road, but Oukitel U6 looks like a worthy competitor to handsets like the notorious YotaPhone. While not a high-end smartphone, the U6 comes with a premium design, below average specs, but excellent battery life.

Oukitel U6 has the following specs and features, but some of its highlights have still not been mentioned on the official product page:

  • Processor: MediaTek MT6735M
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
  • Displays: 5-inch 720p LCD front, 4.7-inch 540p E-Ink on the back
  • Battery/Autonomy: 2100 mAh; 120 hours reading time, up to 180 hours standby

The handset has minimalist bezels and a metal frame while additional features that have been revealed include fun gestures and an IR blaster. Oukitel U6 can be already pre-ordered internationally from various third parties (price may vary) while its MSRP once the presale period ends will be $239.99 USD. More details should become available next month when the U6 is expected to begin shipping.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
