What better place is there to unbox a rugged IP68 waterproof smartphone if not a swimming pool with actual people swimming in it? Cubot knows it and that’s why they decided to do it right there. Jokes aside, let’s watch this quite self-ironic unboxing video released by the company!
So, as we can see in the video and according to Cubot’s team, the swimmer just came across the Cubot KingKong and decided to unbox it right there. Of course, the all thing is staged but still, the smartphone seems to behave just fine underwater after the guy turns it on for the first time. The phone is then used to grab photos as well, which is a great use scenario for this very affordable device, no more additional waterproof cameras to bring along in your next trip at the sea.

Finally, a very neat detail about the whole video is that it was filmed entirely using another Cubot KingKong, which makes sense as they needed underwater footage and the smartphone happens to be waterproof.
The IP68 Cubot Kingkong rugged phone other than being a good option for those living an active life style, also packs some decent hardware for basic users such as:
- CPU: MTK6580 Quad Core 1.3GHz
- Battery: 4400mAh
- RAM + ROM: 2GB + 16GB
- Camera: 8.0MP front camera + 13.0MP rear camera.
Finally, what about pricing? As we previously mentioned the Cubot KingKong is quite affordable, it will indeed only cost you $106.99 from online retailers like Gearbest.
