Cubot and Cheetah entered into a partnership recently to release their first flagship smartphone called as the Cubot Cheetah. The phone was showcased back at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, so we are not new to this device. However, what we were wondering till now was when the new Cheetah phone would go into pre-sale. Now, new information reveals that the Cubot Cheetah phone will start pre-sale sometime next week.
The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS on top, with a highly customizable Cheetah launcher on top. The phone would be running Cheetah mobile’s 3D desktop and comes with all the important apps like Cleaner Master to make the most out of the device. Other software features of the device include a gallery app with Wi-Fi transfer for speedy transfer of photos, Cheetah Mobile’s HD wallpapers and themes.
As for the specs, the Cubot Cheetah is a pretty good smartphone. It comes with a 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. This storage is further expandable via MicroSD slot, but it is a hybrid one, so you can either use dual SIM cards or a single SIM with MicroSD. There will be a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display translating into pixel density of 400 ppi. At the back, you get a fingerprint sensor as well, which unlocks in just 0.3 seconds.
The 13MP rear camera is from Samsung (3M2 sensor) with 5P lens and LED flash. Up front, you get an 8
MP front facing shooter. Inside, there is a 3050mAh battery with 5V 2A fast charging tech. The phone comes with support for 4G LTE networks, 5G Wi-Fi transfer speeds, GPS, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, HotKnot and OTG.
The Cubot Cheetah features an aluminum body with 2.5D glass and comes in three colors, namely space gray, gold and rose gold. At MWC, it was said that the phone will go on sale for $220, but let’s wait for the official pre-sale price next week. You can read more about the phone from here.
