by Timo7. December 2016
The Oukitel U20 Plus is the first budget smartphone with dual camera system. Equipped with a Sony IMX135 image sensor, a sensor that is also installed in branded devices such as the LG G3, Oukitel wants to score especially in the budget area by an excellent image and recording quality. But also the remaining hardware of the Oukitel U20 Plus can be seen at a price of about 90 €!

FHD display and MediaTek processor

Already on the display, the Oukitel U20 Plus differs from many budget smartphones. Instead of an HD display, Oukitel relies on a Full HD display (1920 x 1080) with a display diagonal of 5.5 inches. Manufacturer of the panel is Sharp. Thanks to so-called 2.5D Curved Glass, the edges of the screen appear slightly rounded, which contributes to a better look. The interior of the smartphone is hardly different from Oukitel U7 Plus, also a budget smartphone from Oukitel. Nevertheless, the Oukitel U20 Plus puts it a step further. Instead of a MediaTek MTK6737, this smartphone uses the higher clocked MTK6737T, which has a total of 4 processor cores that clock with a maximum of 1.5GHz. In addition, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory are available. If the internal memory is too small, you can expand it with a micro SD memory card. However, one should note that one of the SIM slots is also eliminated due to the memory expansion and the dual SIM function can no longer be used! Overall, the combination of MTK6737T processor and 2GB of RAM should offer a smooth Android 6 experience - except for graphically demanding games.

Dual camera

The most interesting feature of the Oukitel U20 Plus is the dual main camera. The image sensor of the main camera is Oukitel with a Sony IMX135 Exmor RS sensor, which has already appeared 2013 and in brand devices, such as the LG G3 use. The native resolution of this 1 / 3.06 "sensor is 13.42 Megapixel. In addition to the actual main camera is another 0.3 megapixel camera, which allows the advertised SLR effect. How exactly the dual camera system is implemented, is silent to Oukitel. Recent examples show that a fairly large f / 2.0 aperture was used, which should score especially in low light conditions. Furthermore, the main camera has an autofocus and an LED flash. Front is an 5 megapixel front camera without details of the image sensor.

Design and miscellaneous

The case of the Oukitel U20 Plus is not made of metal, as expected, but of plastic and measures 154 x 77.5 x 8.5 millimeters at a weight of 195 grams. The back is not removable by the unibody design, which is why the 3.300mAh large battery can not be changed. On the back is a fingerprint scanner for safe and easy unlocking of the device. Also worth mentioning is that the Oukitel U20 Plus is compatible with all major 2G, 3G and 4G network standards. LTE band 20 is supported in the same way as the bands 3 and 7 that are common in this country. GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth are available.
