Cubot X16 will feature affordable price and scratch resistant display

At 6.2mm the Cubot X16 is going to be one of the slimmest,  “affordable phones” not a lot of money will buy. Latest news tells us it will feature a scratch resistant display and feature gesture controls too.

There are a few features to the build of the Cubot X16 which make it standout from the rest of the low-cost crowd. For example the body is just 6.2mm thick and is made of a lightweight Zinc Alloy material, then there is a 2.5D curved display and you can add in a scratch resistant feature to make the device all the more durable.

All the hints Cubot have released are pointing towards a phone that isn’t going to cost a huge amount of money (powered by a Mediatek MT6735 chipset), but one that might feature a more premium build and a higher level of ‘craftsmanship’.

The Cubot X16 will come in either white or gold and features a slim bezel design and a weight of 145g. What are you willing to pay for this latest Cubot device, even with it’s affordable hardware and premium build?

The Cubot X16 is on presale now for just $76.66 during the launch period and will increase to $144.99 after.

      Nice to see cheaper phones getting better build quality, though I’m not a fan of Cubot.

      If your not a power user it is more than capable to handle the day to day tasks with no issues.
