Probably inspired by an electric drill battery to which a screen and a SoC would have been added, the Oukitel WP19 aims to serve as a smartphone. With a 21,000 mAh battery, it’s supposed to have a week of battery life.
This is Android Authority which reports the release of Oukitel WP19, which stands out from many other smartphones with its huge battery. If you were complaining about the poor battery life of your smartphone, this one should do the trick, really (probably at the expense of performance and design).
Autonomy that makes you dream
Oukitel states that its WP19 can last a maximum of one week on its battery. The phone can operate for 36 hours of video playback, 123 hours of music listening, 122 hours of calls, and up to 2,252 hours of standby time (that’s just over three months). Better than a generator.
A battery that can be used for several purposes since the charge can be reversed, which means that you can recharge a whole host of objects: headphones, connected watch, electric scooter, electric car (except perhaps these last two when same).
The Oukitel WP19 can be recharged in 27 W by wire; this is equivalent to four hours of recharging to go from 0 to 100%. It’s long, but according to Android Authorityone hour of charging equals one day of use, which isn’t too bad.
In relation to the size of this smartphone, we do not know its exact dimensions, but let’s say that they are comparable to those of an external battery, since it is (in part) one.
What does the Oukitel WP19 give on the hardware?
This smartphone is not only used as a door stopper, it can also be used as… a smartphone. It is equipped with a Mediatek Helio G95 4G SoC, comparable to the Snapdragon 720G, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of expandable storage. On the screen side, it is an FHD + LCD panel with a size of 6.78 inches for a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
On the photo part, there are three cameras on the back, with the main sensor of 64MP, the night sensor of 20MP and a macro sensor of 2MP (which must be incredible… or not). The front camera has a 16MP sensor. Besides that, there is NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and this Oukitel phone runs with Android 12 and Google services. In addition, it has a fingerprint sensor on the side.
Although the Oukitel is surprisingly not sold at Castorama or Leroy Merlin given its brick shape, it is still available on AliExpress for 687.81 Euros at the time of writing. We obviously do not advise you to buy this smartphone, the network bands with which it is equipped are not necessarily compatible with those used in France. Moreover, Oukitel being a brand niche», difficult to have guarantees on the updates of the operating system and/or security; the same applies to after-sales service, as recalledAndroid Authority.
