Vkworld has all things set to begin the presale of its first tri-proof smartphone, Vkworld VK7000. Until now, the Chinese manufacturer had only a feature phone being tri-proof in its portfolio, so this is an important milestone for them. The presale period starts today and to succeed in offering the lowest price possible, the company chose to go with the F2C (factory to customer) marketing model, getting rid of the middleman’s commission. Together with the device, users will receive a $49.99 worth of gift pack that includes a wireless charger, floating protective case, and screen film.
As the first tri-proof from Vkworld, the VK7000 is made of a shock-resistant TPU and metal frame. The IP68 certification allows for submerging under 2 meters of water for 30 minutes. Also, the display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, the latest and most durable glass from Corning to date. As for its specs, they are on the top side of the entry-level with a 5.2″ HD display, and MTK6750T octa-core SoC along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. To achieve a higher level of fluidity and smoothness, Vkworld has Android Oreo preinstalled.
What’s more, the battery sports a 5600mAh capacity which isn’t the highest out there but should get through the day on a single charge. Besides, if you run out of battery, you can get a quick boost with the 5V/2A fast charger. And there’s wireless charging too. The rest of the specs include a dual rear camera with 16MP/5MP sensor combo, side Fingerprint reader, Face Unlock, waterproof speaker, and Type-C port. The presale price is set at $149.99 until May 30th and you can get it on the company’s official Aliexpress store. More details about the phone can be found here.
