Oukitel takes a big step and now officially Google Certified
Oukitel is one of our favorite brands at the moment. The K6000 Plus which we recently reviewed was found to have a true 6000mAh battery, build is very good, it supports Pump Express charging, has big RAM and ROM, and everything is working properly.
Now there’s news that K6000 has gone for Google Mobile Service (GMS) certification and succeeded in both being approved, and having the OTA come across which properly updated the K6000 Plus.
What this means is that Oukitel is officially approved by Google to pre-install their apps on the K6000 Plus, and K6000 Plus approval for using Google app APIs.
Google Mobile Services (GMS) is a collection of Google applications and APIs that help support functionality across devices. These apps work together seamlessly to ensure your device provides a great user experience right out of the box.
The GMS collection includes such apps and services as:
- Google Search
- Google Chrome
- Google Play Store
To fully comply and be approved, a brand needs to:
- Obtain the Android software source code. This is the source code for the Android platform that you port to your hardware.
- Comply with the Android Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) (PDF, HTML). The CDD enumerates the software and hardware requirements of a compatible Android device.
- Pass the Compatibility Test Suite (CTS). Use the CTS as an ongoing aid to evaluate compatibility during the development process.
While this may seem like a small deal on the surface, it really shows that Oukitel is dedicated to providing properly compiled Android and to “adhere to the rules” of the Android ecosystem. If they can do this, it follows that they’ll be doing things properly in other ways as well, such as not lying about specifications and providing quality built devices.
Congrats on the step forward Oukitel. We will have the Oukitel K3 coming to us soon for review. The K3 also has a 6000mAh battery and a very interesting square style that wistfully reminds me of THL T11 and days gone by. Thankfully, Oukitel will now be providing a gyroscope and compass in their new devices.https://gizbeat.com/12051/oukitel-takes-a-big-step-and-now-officially-google-certified/https://gizbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/oukitel-k3-review-450x415.jpghttps://gizbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/oukitel-k3-review-150x150.jpgOukitelRecentTechOukitel is one of our favorite brands at the moment.
