Slightly innovated Cubot S550 Pro coming soon

Cubot S550 Pro

In December 2015 the Cubot S550 model release fell just in line of the other similarly equipped phones so even with the quite nice design it has been more or less a forgettable experience.

But Cubot are not giving up on it and with slightly upgraded Cubot S550 Pro version they are planning to resurrect the model with hopefully better success. The phone should be released in the beginning of July so what can we expect from it ?cubot-s550-pro-1

Gizchina News of the week

Well looking at the press release i have to say the improvements are a bit cosmetic with bumping up RAM to 3 GB and expanding the microSD support to max of 128 GB. Rest stays more or less the same including the design, 5,5-inch HD display, MT6735 processor, 16 GB of storage, 13 Mpix rear camera, 3000 mAh battery, dual SIM support, rear fingerprint scanner and Android 5.1 Lollipop.

With such minor upgrades im quite reluctant to foresee any change in the sale numbers from the S550 model, but maybe will Cubot suprise us all.

    Where is the slight innovation? This is the same as nearly every other budget phone coming out of China these days: MT6753, 3/16, 13mp. If anything it’s finally catching up to the rest.

      Difference is the build quality and camera(much better than anything in that price range).
      I have had S500 and now S600 ariving and those phones are worth their money.
      Cubot phones run super well on that 6735, don`t know how they do it(perhaps very optimiside ART runtime), but those phones run like flagships, although in gaming they show their weakness.

        i have to agree with that i dont know how they make their phones run so smoothly

          I have a cubot s600, a good phone.

          The best is the camera and is a good looking phone, the bad is the fingerprint reader.

          They actually have decent programmers.
          They use a specific ART runtime that makes daily tasks run with ease.
