Do you remember, how Chinese manufacturer begin to release smartphones with S8 in their names? Now, Mix 2 is main trend. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, Vernee Mix 2, Doogee Mix 2 and now Oukitel releases its smartphone called Mix 2.
All of them have full displays, and Oukitel Mix 2 is flagship smartphone with hi-end specifications. Let’s make first review and look at main features.
First of all, Oukitel Mix 2 has glass back panel, instead ceramic, as Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. Also, bezel-less smartphone from Oukitel has bigger body, though displays size is the same.
The device has fingerprint sensor on the back, and front camera below the display on the front.
As you can see from the image below, design of new smartphone is very similar to Mi Mix 2.
Oukitel Mix 2 comes with 5.99 inch display with 18 to 9 aspect ration. It has a resolution of 2160 by 1080 pixels (Full HD+). It supports up to 10 multi-touches, and in general it looks good.
Of course, we should see it on practice, but specifications are very promising. Note, that the screen of Oukitel Mix 2 is completely identical to Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, at least on paper.
Oukitel Mix 2: Performance
If we walk about hardware, new smartphone is powered by Mediatek Helio P25 processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. If this is not enough for you, Mix 2 supports microSD memory cards up to 512 GB.
Of course, Helio P25 chipset is weaker than Snapdragon 835, used in Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, but it is able to provide good performance. We think that Mix 2 from Oukitel will have about 70000 points in AnTuTu.
Oukitel Mix 2 is equipped with three cameras: dual rear camera and single sensor on front. The main camera on the back has 16-megapixel sensor (interpolated to 21MP) and 2-megapixel senodary sensor. Also, there is LED flash. The rear camera can record 4K videos.
The front camera has 8-megapixel sensor (interpolated to 13MP). It’s too early to talk about the quality of cameras, because the smartphone did not go on sale. However, on paper cameras look very good. We are waiting for the official release to see real sample photos and videos.
Oukitel Mix 2: Battery
If we compare Oukitel Mix 2 with Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, then we should not the battery. The first smartphone comes with 4080mAh battery, and Mi Mix 2 is equipped with 3300mAh battery. So, Oukitel Mix2 looks more attractive, but as you know battery capacity does not always mean a long battery life. Also, the smartphone should have energy efficient processor, software and so on.
To be honest, I think that both smartphones will have the same battery life, despite the larger battery of Mix 2. By the way, new smartphone supports fast charging 9V/2A.
Also, it is important to note that Oukitel Mix 2 has 3.5 mm audio jack, unlike most Chinese bezel-less smartphones. However, it comes with old microUSB port and OTG support.
Price and where to buy cheaper
Oukitel Mix 2 will go on sale in October. Its price will be about $299. It is almost twice cheaper than Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. Of course, new smartphone from Oukitel is not so powerful device, as Mi Mix 2, but it offers good specifiaction list, features and full display design.
