As a smartphone manufacturer, Oukitel is devoted to bringing wonderful smartphones to market. In the beginning of 2018, they released not only the global first 11000mAh battery smartphone Oukitel K10 but also announced an iPhone X clone, the Oukitel U18. Today, the company released some photos and a video showing the real thing. How much does the U18 looks like iPhone X? Is it worth buying?
The company claims that the U18 is released especially for those who want an iPhone X experience but don’t want to pay so much money. It mimics iPhone X’s full display with two ears on top showing time, signal info, wifi status, and battery level. Unlike iPhone X, it features a 5.85″ 21:9 display to make the body look slimmer. And to match the 21:9 display, the company chose MT6750T octa-core SoC as the standard MT6750 can only support 18:9 displays. Together with 4GB RAM and stable Android 7, it offers a super comfortable and fluent handling experience.
The U18 is perfect to hold in hand due to its 2.5D curved display, CNC crafted zinc-alloy fram and 3D arc design. The back cover is similar to Huawei Mate 10 Pro but with the two lenses being under a single cover and rubber paint back cover. It offers fingerprint unlock as well as Face ID unlock, but they can’t be used simultaneously. The U18 will pack a 4000mAh battery offering at least one day whole heavy use. Below you can see the video prepared by Oukitel.
