Cubot and mobile app maker Cheetah Mobile have teamed up to launch an octacore smartphone running Android 6.0.

For many of you Cubot, won’t need an introduction, but Cheetah Mobile might. Cheetah Mobile are a Beijing based app maker who have created Android applications such as Clean Master, Battery Doctor and CM Security apps available on Google Play. The developer also has their own Android based launcher too called CM Launcher (not to be confused with CyanogenMod).

The collaboration between Cubot and Cheetah Mobile will see apps from the company installed on the new Cubot Cheetah, a phone shipping with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and due for launch in the next month.

Cubot have provided detailed specifications for the Cheetah which will me made from metal, feat a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 (400PPI) display, 3GB RAM, Mediatek MT6753 octacore chipset, 8 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel rear camera.

The phone will measure 149 x 74.9 x 7.95mm with a built-in 3050mAh battery and rear touch fingerprint scanner on the rear. Dual SIM will also be available for WCDMA 900/1900/2100 and FDD-LTE bands 1/3/7/20. Using just one SIM gives the user room to add an SD card if the 32GB internal memory isn’t enough.

The Huawei inspired phone will come in black, silver, pink and gold and should go on sale next month. Pricing isn’t confirmed yet, and we are still waiting on full details on how integrated Cheetah Mobile’s apps are in the Android 6.0 OS.

Like many Chinese phone makers, Cubot will be attending MWC so we will try to get some hands on time with their new phones while there.

    i like cubot they just make phones that work even when they have low specs.. i dont know how they do it

    I love the looks of it, it’s like a cross between Huawei, Meizu and Apple.

    Loved the look of it, but cheetah mobile apps are pretty much crap, the type of apps that looks more like bloatware/adware, so I would pick the phone, root and remove all crap 😛

      Their apps all seem like fronts for advertising, especially their launcher.

        I always used Quickpic gallery as my main gallery app since it has much more features than stock one, plus cloud sync with my google drive/ onedrive. Then one day, Cheetah mobile bought it x_x
        Haha colorful things started to pop-up, they even offered even a crazy “1TB cloud backup”, not only that I simply don’t trust on them.
        Now I use a outdated version of app, just a version before the CM version.

    In the era of the P10 , how much this guy will cost to survive and be successful ?

  • dutchgio

    Cheetah Mobile is a scam, I’d stay away from it.

    Dimensions and appearance look great, but partnership with bloatware provider and outdated SOC spoil it for me. I like cubot overall for their builds but they should really move to P10 and clean android…
