Cubot X9 New Android Smartphone
Cubot X9 is a good-looking smartphone with design similar to iPhone 6. It is now sold at Gearbest for only $130.55. For the affordable price, users will get decent features, MediaTek MTK6592 1.4GHz octa-core processor, 5-inch 720p IPS display, 8Mp rear-facing camera, 5Mp front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a very mature software version, Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Wireless connectivity options include WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100, Hotknot, GPS and Bluetooth. The 2600mAh battery is adequate for daily usages and there are two slots, microSD/nanoSIM and microSIM.
At 143.5 x 72.5 x 6.9mm, the Cubot X9 should offer a respectable dimension. As comparison, the iPhone 6 is slightly smaller at 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm. Users should be able to get a device that’s as thin as iPhone 6 and weighing in at only 124 grams; the Cubot X9 is actually lighter than Apple iPhone 6. With excellent weight distribution, the phone should feel extremely light. One thing that we should be very pleased with is that the phone already includes a notification light. The Cobot X9 is similar to the iPhone 6 on the edges and the placement of volume rocker and power button.
The non-removable back cover has smooth-brushed metal finish and it should be quite pleasant to the touch. Overall, the Cubot X 9 should feel very premium. On the right side of the Cubot X9, there are a couple SIM card slots, located below the power and volume buttons. One slot is for microSIM and another is for microSD or nanoSIM. Because it is very likely that users will permanently use microSD memory card, then only the microSIM slot is usable. The 8Mp camera on the back is paired with LED flash and it should provide decent photography quality for smartphone users. Cubot is also offering more products in Gearbest.
The back of the phone houses the 8MP camera and LED flash, as well as a very small pinhole situated below the camera whose function I have not identified yet. The Cubot Logo is featured prominently near the bottom of the smartphone, and immediately tells every “un-techsavvy” person that it isn’t an iPhone.
