One of the highlights of the new OUKITEL WP8 Pro is its IP69K rating. This makes it dust and heat resistant. IP69K is the highest IP certification for a smartphone and is only given after the phone has to go through dust, close-range high pressure, high-temperature spray downs. It is also water-resistant up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.

The phone has 4GB of RAM onboard with 64GB of storage. There’s a basic 16MP triple camera setup at the back and the large 5000mAh battery can power these features for nearly two days on a single charge. Other features include a Side-Mounted Fingerprint Sensor, Barometer, Proximity Sensor, Ambient Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Electronic Compass.
