ROKiT is a company that you may have never heard of before, but this week it's launching some new mobile phones with interesting features.
There are currently five phones available from ROKiT, including two smartphones with glasses-free 3D displays. The ROKiT IO Pro 3D is the top-end model, boasting a 5.99-inch 2160x1080 display, dual 13MP and 2MP rear cameras, an 8MP front camera, and MediaTek MT6763 processor. There's 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a microSD card slot included, too, along with a fingerprint reader, 3850mAh battery, and Android 8.1 Oreo.
The ROKiT IO 3D has a smaller 5.45-inch 1440x720 display with glasses-free 3D tech, 8MP rear and 2MP front cameras, and a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor paired with 2GB of RAM. There's 16GB of storage built into the device along with a microSD card slot, a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone, and a 2500mah battery. Like the ROKiT IO Pro 3D, the non-Pro ROKiT IO 3D comes with Android 8.1.
To help you use the glasses-free 3D display on these phones, they're preloaded with ROKFLiX 3D and one month free access to ROK Media, which is ROKiT's 3D video library. While these aren't the only phones with 3D screens on the market — the RED Hydrogen One supports 3D, too — having a glasses-free 3D display is still a pretty uncommon feature, and it makes us remember the HTC EVO 3D that launched eight years ago.
Those glasses-free 3D displays aren't the only unique feature of ROKiT's smartphones. Each model also comes with ROK Talk, which gets you unlimited international and domestic Wi-Fi calling for 12 months. ROK Health is also included, getting you access to MeMD's telemedicine service so that you can talk to a doctor 24/7, as well as savings on prescriptions at over 62,000 pharmacies through WellRx.
ROKiT offers add-ons that'll get you even more life assistance services. For $2.99 per month, you can get ROK Drive for roadside assistance that includes help with flat tires, battery jumps, empty gas tanks, and tows. And for $14.99 per month, ROK Life will get you all of ROKiT's services, including family telemedicine, pharmacy savings, roadside assistance, ID theft protection, accidental death insurance, burial and cremation insurance, and family legal services.
The ROKiT IO 3D and ROKiT IO Pro 3D are sold unlocked and are compatible with GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. You can buy them directly from ROKiT or from Walmart, with pricing set at $299.99 for the ROKiT IO Pro 3D and $199.99 for the ROKiT IO 3D.
If 3D's not your thing, ROKiT also sells a basic Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition) smartphone called the ROKiT IO Light. It's got a 5-inch 854x480 screen, quad-core MediaTek MT6580M processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. There are 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras included along with a 2150mAh battery and support for up to 3G connectivity on GSM networks.
The ROKiT IO Light is priced at $89.99 and includes the same ROK Talk and ROK Health add-ons as ROKiT's other smartphones.
Rounding out ROKiT's lineup of phones is a pair of featurephones. The ROKiT One is a candybar phone with a 2.4-inch display, dual SIM slots, 800mAh battery, and 0.3MP rear camera. There's 512MB of storage included here, but you can add up to 32GB more with a microSD card. This dual SIM device is sold unlocked with support for GSM networks, includes a built-in FM radio, and comes with 12 months of ROK Talk Wi-Fi calling.
The ROKiT F-One swaps the candybar form factor for the flip design. It's got a 2.4-inch internal screen, 2MP rear camera, a 1000mAh battery, and dual SIM slots. 512MB of storage is included, but again, you can add 32GB more with a microSD card. FM radio, GSM connectivity, and 12 months of ROK Talk Wi-Fi calling are all included as well.
The ROKiT One is priced at $34.99 and the ROKiT F-One is $39.99. While they don't include ROK Health like their smartphone siblings, you can add that feature for $9.99 per month.
