Smartphone screens with slim bezels are all the rage these days. What was once a feature found only in high-end devices has found its way to midrange and now, even sub-P4,000 (less than $80) handsets.
Meet the Oukitel C8, whose 1280 x 640 display measures 5.5 inches diagonally and has an 18:9 aspect ratio. We stumbled upon it on Lazada Philippines. Its price? Only P3,967 ($79), the lowest we’ve seen on the online retail store.
That makes the C8 cheaper than the P5,999 ($120) Flare S6 Deluxe, Cherry Mobile’s second 18:9 phone after the P9,999 ($201) Flare S6 Plus. Then again, because the Chinese company does not have an official presence in the country, it does not come with official warranty.
Another downer is the Oukitel C8’s lack of 4G support. There’s a 4G version, but we can’t find it on Lazada. However, if you’re a risk-taker and just want something basic, feel free to go ahead and check it out.
The dual-SIM smartphone’s low price tag is matched with an entry-level MediaTek MT6580A processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. Should you want more space, you can use a microSD card with up to 64GB of memory.
There’s a 5-megapixel front camera for those who love to take selfies and a 13-megapixel rear camera for everyone else. A fingerprint sensor can be found on the back.
The Oukitel C8 also boasts a 3,000mAh battery, Android Nougat as its OS, and five available colors to choose from: Midnight Black, Sunny Gold, Rosy Pink, Sky Blue, and Orchid Purple.
