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.
