China's love for breaking walnuts or hammering needles onto a piece of wood never seems to end. In fact it is becoming the next big tradition for smartphone marketing in the country.
After Oppo did this with a smash test with their R5, a Chinese company called Oukitel over did that by using their K4000 device as replacement for a hammer. Apparently they tortured their Oukitel K4000 smartphone by hammering nails onto a piece of wood.
No wonder the video went viral in the tech community thereby giving the less reputed Chinese brand the much needed "hype".
Now another Chinese company called VkWorld has carried out this marketing strategy. This time they not only used their device dubbed the VkWorld VK7000 Pro for hammering needles on to a piece of wood, but also used it smash walnuts!
As you can see in the official video released by the company on YouTube, the VkWorld VK7000 Pro isn't having any problems to smash all those walnuts in tiny fragments! Impressive, but crazy stuff.
The less known Chinese brand has used a 3.0D curved Corning Gorilla Glass on the front along with a space alloy construction. This is supposedly is reason behind the incredibly durability of the smartphone.
On the inside is a MediaTek 6582 1.3GHz quad core SoC, which can be seen in most budget devices from the likes of Micromax, Lava etc. This coupled with an 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. The front features a 5.5 inch HD (1280x720) display along with a 5MP front camera.
The back though has a 13MP Sony camera which comes with a single LED Flash. The USP of the device however is its budget pricing. Despite boasting of an impeccable built the VkWorld Vk7000 Pro smartphone comes at just $84.99 (Rs 5,500).
However you can even get this smartphone at a bargain - $59.99 (Rs 3900) - at Everbuying every Wednesdays at 2.30pm IST till 28th of October (14th, 21st and the 28th). Importing the device to India will however incur a higher price. Expect a price of around Rs 5999 after paying customs and logistics charge.
