There are two products that have been destined to be combined since the beginning—the smartphone and the chopping board. Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oukitel is aiming to finally make that happen.
In all seriousness, one of the biggest drawbacks of today's smartphones is how fragile they are. Oukitel's new U7 Pro is aimed at being extremely tough, and the company has even uploaded a video depicting using the phone as a chopping board, after which the phone will emerge without a scratch.
Since smartphones first began to grow in popularity, users have lamented at how fragile the screens on their phones are. A poll in 2013 showed that as many as a quarter of iPhone users were at the time using phones that had a broken screen. Oukitel as a company is hoping to change that, and the U7 isn't the first extra-tough phone from the company. Back in September, the company demonstrated drilling through its K4000 series smartphone to demonstrate that the phone could still work perfectly fine after it had a hole in it.
Apart from the strong display, the U7 features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 along with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and 8 GB of storage. It also has a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and 1 GB of RAM. In general, the specs of the phone aren't that great, but if you're looking for something durable then perhaps this is the phone for you.
While most of the specs aren't the best, the phone does come with a projector, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Beam series. Not only that, but it also comes at a pretty low price, costing users only $70. It's not yet known if and when the phone might be available in the U.S.
