Oukitel is probably best known for its smartphones with ingress-protection ratings such as IP68/69K, a reinforced-style casing and large batteries for prolonged screen-on time. These features also apply to its latest product, the RT1 - however, this one has the OEM's largest display to date, at 10 inches. Oukitel will launch it for outdoor-life fans later in November 2021.

Update: The Oukitel RT1 has now debuted on AliExpress, just in time for 2021's Cyber Weekend at its promised US$200 promo price. The OEM has also released a schedule of discount codes that might also work in various regions.

Oukitel is currently teasing the RT1, a device that runs Android 11 from within a 'tough' chassis with IP68 and IP69K ratings. However, it is not a smartphone as is more usual for the brand, but its inaugural tablet instead.

With a 10.1-inch diagonal length with an FHD resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio, the RT1 brings reasonable, if just slightly outdated, display specs to Oukitel's newly adopted form-factor. Then again, as the OEM skirts around mentioning a panel type in its marketing material, it is also probably LCD rather than something like AMOLED.

The tablet's screen is kept on with a 10,000mAh battery - which makes it top-end in its market in that respect, admittedly - and driven by a MediaTek Helio P22 paired to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Therefore, while there are no other top-end attributes here, there is at least 4G/LTE as well as Wi-Fi.

Finally, Oukitel has equipped the RT1 with 16MP cameras from Samsung on both its front and back and with a fingerprint sensor. Therefore, it may take on other companies such as Durabook in pitching its latest offering at those who might need or like to bring their tablet outdoors or into hazardous environments and are liable to drop it onto or into dangerous things.

The Oukitel RT1 is currently listed on AliExpress with a normal price of US$260 (an amount that might change based on consumer location). However, it will go for as little as $200 in the run-up to its formal launch on November 25, 2021.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
