As we’ve seen in yesterday’s press release from the Chinese phone maker — Cubot, the company is now aiming at creating high quality products that won’t dry your wallet. A few examples are the latest smartband Cubot S1, the Cubot R9 and the Cubot Magic with its very unique curved body.
Today, the company is announcing a new device, namely called Cubot Note Plus, which selling point are two 16MP cameras, one at the front and one at the back. The smartphone will be launched in three colors: black, gold and dark blue, and it’ll feature a fully metal body; it’ll also be only 8.5mm thick, which is quite good for a 5.2-inch phone.
The 5.2-inch display will have a resolution of 1080×1920 and sport an IPS display, so it should be sharp with good color reproduction, the screen’s pixel density will be 424PPI.
Under the hood of the Cubot Note Plus we’ll find a Mediatek 6737T CPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB). The smartphone will be running Android 7 Nougat, support 4G networks and have a fast 0.1s fingerprint scanner on the back.
Having a closer look at the cameras, we learn that main rear camera will be sporting a SONY Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and an F/2.0 aperture, accompanied by a 1A LED flash. Cubot say that through noise reduction and other algorithms the smartphone will be able to take better quality photos and take advantage of the wide lens to snap photos with a blurred background.
Lastly, we get a 16MP shooter at the front as well, this one also comes with a soft light which should help when taking selfies in low light conditions.
Overall the Cubot Note Plus seems to be a solid phone, but to understand if it’s a good alternative we need to find out its price; which Cubot hasn’t revealed yet. Learn more about the phone on the official website.
