Oukitel WP12 Pro
– NFC & Google Pay
– Android 11
Compact smartphones are now rare, especially in the upper price range. The situation is a bit different for outdoor smartphones. Many manufacturers offer compact models with a screen diagonal of less than six inches. Now this category gets another representative with the Oukitel WP12 Pro. The smartphone, which costs just $129.99, has a 5.5-inch screen and even a current operating system with Android 11. However, the bulky device is far from compact.
The Oukitel WP12 Pro measures 174 x 81 x 14.3 millimeters and weighs 237 grams. The 5.5-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio is on the front. Contrary to the current trend, the display edges at the top and bottom are quite large. In return, the screen does not have a notch or punch hole. Also unusual: The corners of the display are not rounded, but actually angular. The selfie camera is located in the edge above the display together with the earpiece. Unfortunately, there is nothing about the installed glass in the spec sheet, so we do not assume Gorilla Glass. However, a specially hardened glass is probably used anyway.
The MediaTek Helio A22 sets the pace in Oukitel’s WP12 Pro. The quad-core processor clocks with up to 1.8 GHz per core and is supported by a PowerVR GE8300. The working memory of four gigabytes is sufficiently large, and the user also has 32 gigabytes of expandable main memory at his disposal. Let us briefly return to the processor – we know it from the Cubot KingKong Mini and the Ulefone Armor X7.
Now we come to the battery. At 4,000 mAh, it is not above average for an outdoor smartphone, but it is still appropriate due to the compact dimensions. The included power adapter supplies 5V/1A, wireless charging is not supported. According to the manufacturer, the standby time should be up to 420 hours, and 22 hours of continuous calls are also possible. We assume an average usage time of 2 days.
Two nano SIM cards can be inserted into the Oukitel WP12 Pro without a microSD card. Both can access LTE, and the important LTE band 20 is also on board in the European version (not in the American variant – watch out when buying). WLAN a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz) is supported at home. Bluetooth 5.0 and even NFC are also included, and GPS should not be missing either.
