Cubot continue to focus entry-level phones with the announcement of the $99.99 Cubot S168.
We usually see entry-level phones launch with flashy features like a fingerprint scanner or heart-rate monitor, but Cubot are focussing on simple features for the new S168.
At $99.99 the phone is well priced and hardware is about what we expect from an entry-level device. A quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 5-inch 960 x 540 display, Android Kitkat and OTG.

Dual SIM and an SD card for up to 32GB cards is there and camera are 8 mega-pixel front and 5 mega-pixel rear. There is nothing ‘wow’ about the Cubot, which might actually work in its favour. Without the flashy gimmicks, Cubot may have hopefully spent a little more time on optimisation and build-quality with the S168! Fingers crossed.
Cubot S168 pre-orders have already begun over son Gearbest.com, who are offering a couple a free gifts with the phone too.
