Ever since the launch of the iPhone X various Chinese smartphone brands has been trying to copy the amazing design, mostly, making pretty sure to get every part of the iPhone X’s unique top notch. While most of this android phones did well in copying the design, they’ve failed woefully when it comes to features and specs.
But one of the copycats managed to stand out and eventually caught our fancy. The OUKITEL U18 is the Chinese company’s flagship device, designed to look like Apple’s iPhone X and has features and specifications that you will like to see on a high-end Android smartphone. They’ve made sure to design the phone’s anterior to be the same as iPhone X while leaving a little bit of bezel at the bottom. The back of the phone looks more like the new Huawei Mate 10 pro.
While OUKITEL U18’s has its dual-lens rear camera top middle, iPhone X has its rear dual lens camera placed at the top left.
Talking about the security features, while iPhone X relies only on the Face ID, OUKITEL U18 offers both facial recognition unlock and traditional fingerprint scanner.
Now let’s talk about the specs of this phone.
While OUKITEL U18 features a larger 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, while iPhone X gets 3GB RAM and 64GB ROM. Though nearly same display, U18 is 5.85-inch while iPhone X is 5.8 inch. On paper U18 has also higher megapixel count for the cameras, iPhone X carries 12MP+12MP dual lens rear camera and 7MP front camera, OUKITEL U18 gets 16MP+5MP dual-lens rear camera and 13MP front camera.
