Overview

Fans of Oukitel's K series must have anticipated with quite an excitement the K6000 Plus. Firstly, for quite some time there hasn't been a new release under this series (except for the K7000, which isn't a proper representative of it). Secondly, the K6000 Plus arrives after the Premium, which didn't see the light of day and it sounds like a proper upgrade of the much praised Oukitel K6000 Pro, at least on paper. We have it in our hands already, so here it is - our in-depth review of Oukitel K6000 Plus.

Oukitel K6000 Plus features a 5.5-inch IPS display from AUO. The LTPS (Low Temperature PolySilicon) panel has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and is protected by an Asahi Dragontrail glass with a 2.5D curved top layer. The screen graces a 9.6 mm thin body with a CNC crafted metal frame and back plate made of aluminum alloy. The hardware is based on a MediaTek MT6750T system-on-chip that contains an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU with four 1.5GHz cores and four 1GHz cores. Graphics are handled by a 650MHz dual-core Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. There are 4GB of single-channel, LPDDR3 RAM, clocked at 833MHz on board. The internal memory measures 64GB and can be expanded with up to 512GB. The smartphone can also work with an external HDD of up to 2TB via the included OTG cable. The primary camera of the model is equipped with a 16-megapixel OmniVision OV16880 PureCel sensor coupled with an f/2.0, 6-element lens, PDAF, and dual-LED flash. The front-facing unit packs an 8-megapixel Hynix Hi-846 sensor and an 80-degree, wide-angle lens. K6000 Plus has a hybrid, dual-SIM tray for a Nano-SIM and a Nano-SIM/microSD card. The primary SIM card supports 2G GSM (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz), 3G WCDMA (900 and 2100 MHz) and 4G FDD-LTE (800, 900, 1800, 2100, 2600 MHz) bands, while the secondary works in 2G and 3G networks only. As long as it concerns wireless connectivity, the model supports HotKnot, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Cast display, and Bluetooth 4.0. The device has a micro-USB 2.0 port with OTG support and works with GPS and GLONASS. It is powered by a 6080 mAh Li-Pol battery from SCUD with a 12V/2A fast charger that supports MediaTek Pump Express Plus. The smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with a good choice of customization options. Here are the complete Oukitel K6000 Plus specifications.

What's in the box

K6000 Plus is placed inside a typical Oukitel box - with a white body and orange lid that has the company's logo imprinted on the top. Some basic specifications and certifications are provided on the bottom of the box. As usual, the device is in the top level compartment, carefully packaged with all standard protectors for the display and back. Below it, besides the envelope with the warranty card, user guide, and SIM tray pin, you will see the big 12V/2A fast charger, USB cable, OTG cable, screen protector, and a transparent silicone case with a subtle rhomboid pattern on the back.
