On January 22, Oukitel launches the OT8, a new 11-inch tablet on the market. The new tablet is set to impress with TÜV-SÜD certification, an 8,800 mAh battery and Widevine L1 certification. This should enable media content from various streaming services to be played back in Full HD without any problems.
Large display with FullHD resolution
The eleven-inch diagonal display makes up 81 percent of the entire device – and therefore appears comparatively large. Oukitel is thus bringing its new tablet closer, at least visually, to conventional smartphones, where the trend towards ever narrower edges has been continuing for years. The intended benefit is obvious: films, videos and the like should be able to be played on as large a surface as possible without interference. In view of the fact that media consumption has increasingly shifted to mobile devices, Oukitel’s decision in favor of the screen-to-body ratio seems to make sense. The device is also suitable for everyday use thanks to its comparatively low weight of 515 grams and thickness of 7.8 millimetres. It is therefore also designed for mobile use – in line with the intended purpose of the tablet genre.
Powerful battery and other features
In addition to the factors mentioned, the battery of a device is essential for a positive user experience. Oukitel has opted for a model with a capacity of 8,800 mAh, which is relatively high. However, the OT8 cannot keep up with the 32,000 mAh battery of its RT7 outdoor tablet, which is not a flaw due to the significantly different areas of use. This enormous capacity is reflected in a standby time of 1,130 hours. This means that nobody has to worry about the tablet giving up after a short period of intensive use. If the battery does run out, it can be recharged in no time at all. The 18W fast charging function is responsible for this. Other features include an 8-megapixel front camera from Sony and a 13-megapixel rear camera from Samsung. With these features, the Oukitel OT8 outperforms other tablets in its price range and makes it possible to capture special moments. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Processor and RAM
Meanwhile, the device is powered by the octa-core T606 processor, which enables multitasking and is also suitable for demanding tasks such as streaming movies or games. By choosing this process, Oukitel has once again underlined its desire to design a multimedia tablet. The processor is supported by six GB of RAM, which can be expanded to a total of 30 GB through virtual allocation. In addition, there is an internal memory of 256 GB, offering space for more than 277,000 photos, over 33,000 short videos and over 500,000 songs. The internal memory can be expanded to up to 1 TB using a TF card.
Price and availability
The Oukitel OT8 will be available from January 22 to 28 in the manufacturer’s official online store for around 180 dollars. The first 200 orders will receive a free smartwatch worth 60 US dollars. Those who are new to the Oukitel store will also receive a five percent discount. After this introductory week, the price will rise to around 190 dollars and all extras will no longer apply.
