Rugged smartphones are designed for users who regularly explore challenging environments, whether for work or leisure. While most are built like tanks, some stand out with unique designs. The strangest one we’ve seen resembles an alien or futuristic gadget, featuring a noticeable, large speaker on its back.

While many phones have large camera enclosures on the back, the Oukitel WP33 Pro stands out because its cameras are small and don’t occupy much space. The main highlight is its 5W speaker, boasting a 36mm diameter and advertised to reach an impressive 136dB volume – quite loud for a smartphone.

Unlike many rugged phones focusing on industrial settings, the Oukitel WP33 Pro is designed for fun and adventurous activities like camping, trekking, hiking, or wildlife photography. Its speaker adds a lively vibe for parties with friends or solo moments, but caution is advised when using the loudspeaker around wild animals, especially at night.

Oukitel envisions the use of its latest rugged phone for wildlife photography, highlighting its 20MP Sony night vision camera. The primary 64MP camera offers decent photo capabilities, and the 2MP macro lens caters to extreme close-up enthusiasts. The phone’s large size accommodates a massive 22,000mAh battery, which can also be used to charge your primary phone conveniently.

The Oukitel WP33 Pro’s specifications are in line with mid-range smartphones from late 2023, so it’s not a powerhouse, particularly for mobile gaming. However, its real strength lies in durability, boasting an IP68 dust and water resistance rating, along with IP69K resistance against high-pressure water jets. While it may not win design awards, it will certainly attract attention, especially when you start playing music from this rugged and attention-grabbing mobile device.
