OKWU Pi has got a metallic finishing and also has the basic 4G LTE and VoLTE that everyone is looking for (thanks to Jio). Another feature called U-Tag is supported. This is actually a Bluetooth tag that can be attached to other devices or belongings. The tag then connects with your phone and you can track it within the Bluetooth range, you can use buzzer to locate it, or in case the tag is out of Bluetooth range the phone will keep uploading its location without overwriting previous location to help you track it.
The U-Tag device is priced at Rs. 990 and the OKWU Pi smartphone is priced at Rs. 5,999. Dual cameras sound good but not sure how they will perform.
