The new Oukitel WP33 Pro proudly defies slimness. And light smartphones. It boasts an absolutely insane 22,000mAh battery, considered the largest ever installed in a phone. The handset weighs 577.5g and measures 27.2mm thick. This is a device you will never, ever forget you have in your pocket! That is, if you have reinforced pockets, because we don’t know if normal pockets can handle something like this without bursting at the seams.
The Oukitel WP33 Pro is also very wide (84mm), making it probably impossible to hold and use with one hand by anyone, including NBA players. At least the height is in the normal range at 175.4mm.
It is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 6100+ chipset, paired with 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage. The screen is a 6.6-inch 1080 x 2408 IPS panel with a 60Hz refresh rate and 450 nits of brightness. There’s Gorilla Glass 5 on top.
The main camera on the back is a Sony IMX686 1/1.73″ 64MP sensor with an f/1.89 aperture and an LED flash. You also get a 20MP night vision camera with the Sony IMX350 1/1.78″ sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and an infrared fill light. Finally, a 2MP macro camera made by BYD (better known for electric cars, but as diversified as it seems). Selfies are handled by a 32MP camera using the Sony IMX616 sensor.
The main feature on the back, however, has nothing to do with the cameras. It’s a bonkers 5W speaker that measures 36mm in diameter and is capable of a maximum sound volume of 136dB.
According to Oukitel’s own measurements, an iPhone 15’s speakers hit 98dB, an alarm siren is at about 109dB, an outdoor speaker can generally go up to 116dB, while a jet engine will produce 120dB, and the WP33 Pro’s speaker is even louder than that. It also has « 8D Immersive Stereo Surround » sound, because 3, 4, 5, 6, or even 7 were certainly not enough.
The WP33 Pro supports 33W wired charging (takes 5 hours to go from 0 to 100%) and 18W reverse wired charging to recharge other devices from its giant battery. The phone has an IP68 dust and water resistance rating, is IP69K certified to withstand high-pressure water jets, and is MIL-STD-810H certified to survive a 1.5m drop. A fingerprint sensor is on the side. It runs on Android 13 and you probably shouldn’t expect updates.
The Oukitel WP33 Pro seems to only be available on AliExpress from Oukitel’s official store at the moment. The price is $594.98 before coupons and discounts, and it should be shipped within 72 hours of your order.
