Oukitel U7 Plus Announced for $70, Comes with Fingerprint scanner and 2GB RAM
Around 2 weeks back there were reports about Oukitel announcing the upgraded version of the Oukitel U7 Pro. Dubbed the Oukitel U7 Plus, it was rumored to be a budget offering with advanced specifications. The reports have been officially confirmed and they have announced the Oukitel U7 Plus. Starting at a price of 594 Yuan (around $89) it is one of the cheapest smartphones that offer a fingerprint scanner. What’s more interesting is that it will be available for as low as 466 Yuan (around $70) during the presale period.
The phone sports polycarbonate unibody with a metal finish to it. It looks gorgeous and there is nothing much to complain here. The Oukitel U7 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch display with an HD resolution. This is decent taking into consideration the price at which it is offered.
Compared to the U7 Pro, the U7 Plus comes with double the amount of RAM at 2GB and an improved chipset. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6737 quad-core SoC clocked at 1.3GHz. There is 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD.
The most interesting feature of the Oukitel U7 Plus is the fingerprint scanner placed just beneath the camera. It is said to have the ability to capture photos, accept calls and lock apps. There is a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel selfie shooter.
The battery is a bit on the lower side at 2,500mAh but it might be just the right amount considering the fact that the phone is fairly underpowered. The quad-core SoC and 5.5-inch HD display would be less taxing on the battery.
At just $70 during the presale period, the Oukitel U7 Plus is one of the best budget smartphones that you can get. Offering features that phones almost double its price offers, it is a great phone for those looking to buy their first Android phone.
