We have seen plenty of smartphones from Cubot in the past few couple of months. The company has drastically changed its design in the recent models, with the ones like the Cubot X11 and the Cubot X15 featuring stellar built quality and design. Now, Cubot is back in the market with a brand new smartphone called as the Cubot H1.
The highlight of the Cubot H1 will be its monstrous 5200mAh battery. We still don’t have many smartphones which can boast of such a large battery. And with this much juice under the hood, you no longer have to worry about charging your phone for days. In fact, Cubot H1 can be used as a power bank as well. Yes, you can use the 5200mAh battery on board to charge other devices using a OTG cable, a nifty feature to keep all your gadgets running throughout the day.
What’s even more interesting is that the phone supports fast charge. This means that you can get up to 2 hours of talktime with just 10 minutes of charging the device. Using a 5V / 2A charger you can reportedly charge the device in about half an hour to 100%. With the full 5200mAh charged, you can watch a video for 1.5 hours, watch online content for about 1.5 hours, browse for 25 minutes, attend calls for 20 mins and make about 1 hour of online calls. That’s a whole lot of usage that you can do in just a single charge.
Cubot H1 manages to fit in its large battery inside a pretty slim 9.2mm thin body. That’s less than a centimeter which is quite impressive. The overall body looks quite good, with a special texture at the back which shines subtly and gives you a good grip at the same time. Up front, the phone features 2.5D curved glass, which has become somewhat a standard among premium devices.
Specs wise, apart from the battery, the Cubot H1 is a mid-ranger. The phone features a 5.5-inch HD 720p IPS OGS display with 84% NTSC Color Gamut. Under the hood, there’s the MT6735P 64-bit chip clocked at 1GHz and 2GB of RAM. For storage, you have 16GB inside with the option of further expanding using a MicroSD card.
At the back, there’s a 13MP shooter (interpolated) along with LED flash and an 8MP camera (again interpolated using 5MP) up front. The rear camera unit features 5P AF Lens. The phone supports dual SIM dual Standby (1 MicroSIM and 1 standard SIM). It also comes with 4G LTE connectivity with supported LTE bands: 1/ 3/ 7/ 20. The Cubot H1 also comes with IR sensor which lets you control many appliances at your home. For software, the phone runs on Android 5.1.
To sum up, the Cubot H1 is an ideal smartphone for those who would like a mid-range smartphone with a gigantic battery. The phone is expected to retail for around $160.
