MWC has just gone past us and quite a lot of smartphones have been released into the wild and they include those from well-known brands like Samsung, Xiaomi, and LG; just to name a few.
However, there were several lesser known Chinese brands that also made their presence known at the congress, and of the bunch was Cubot — which is an upcoming brand name in China and nearby territories.
Cubot took to MWC 2016 in partnership with an app maker called Cheetah to make a few announcements. Shortly after the event, the abovementioned company took to the media to announce three other smartphones namely Cubot Z100, Cubot S500 and S-def 550.
The Cubot Z100 is the most basic of the bunch, packing a mere 1GB of RAM and a MediaTek MT6735P chipset that’s capable of LTE. We have a 5inch high-def panel on the front, an 8MP rear camera and 5MP up front; both with software Interpolation to 13MP and 8MP respectively.
Up next, is the Cubot S500 which features a slight upgrade to the Z100; coming in with 2GB of RAM that is coupled with 16GB of internal storage and MT6735A, we have a 5incher with what seem to be a pretty impressive exterior if you ask me.
Likewise, the slightly elongated big brother – Cubot S550 with a 5.5 inch OGS display carrying quite a hefty 3000mAh battery, 2GB RAM but an MT6735 processor. The S500 before it, however, comes with a smaller 2700mAh battery unit.
We also know that both the S500 and S550 will come with a rear sensor of 13MP with an F2.0 aperture and an 8MP front facing cam. Pricing should start out at 129.99 for the S500 but we are yet to learn that of the Z100 and S550. All aforementioned smartphones feature dual-sim, MicroSD card slot, and Android 5.1 on the software side of things.
