Oukitel K6 review
What’s most interesting about this phone to me is the new MT6763 Helio P23 SoC, and with it, a fresh kernel from MediaTek — Android 7.1. This makes it one of the first China brand models to have Android 7.1.
It also carries a massive 6300mAh battery with powerbank mode, and NFC. The latter is almost unheard of in China brand phones.
The MTK6763 Helio P23 is built on 16nm which is a relatively modern process. The Helio P23 CPU is 8-core Cortex-A53@2.0GHz and the GPU is Mali-G71 MP2. Mali-G71 is the first ARM GPU to carry their new Bifrost architecture and is the GPU which is used in Samsung Galaxy S8, though note, the K6 variant carries far fewer cores.

The 16MP optical camera sensor is likely the Samsung S5K3P3, but could also be OV16880. Either one of these sensors are quite good and we will update this when more info is known.
As typical for Oukitel, it carries a massive battery — 6300mAh. According to Oukitel, it has Pump Express 3.0 which supports charging up to 3.0A. The display is in the new 18:9 style and its something I’ve quite liked.
