18:9 Cubot X18 Specs Revealed: MT6737T, Pure Android 7

by Joe 6

Ever since Samsung released the Galaxy S8 and LG outed its LG G6, 18:9 displays have become a new fad. And slowly, manufacturers are expected to shift to 18:9 displays, including top companies like Apple, Sony, Huawei, OPPO, and Vivo. But these smartphones won’t be cheap which is where brands like Cubot tries to lure in customers with cheaper, less powerful alternatives.

The company has already released teaser video and images of the Cubot X18, featuring a 5.7-inch 18:9 screen and an impressive 83 percent screen to body ratio. This looks pretty amazing right? But Cubot might be giving a bit too much love to the display, leaving little for the other departments. The Cubot X18 will come with the quad-core MT6737T chip. This is at best an entry level chip and if the screen resolution turns out to be 1080p, we’ll have to wait and see if the chip manages to handle this resolution smoothly.

In the RAM department, you won’t be disappointed though. The phone features 3GB RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. At the back, you get a 13MP shooter with LED flash while up front you get an 8MP camera sensor along with an LED flash. There’s 3200mAh battery on board and for software, the phone will lose all bloatware for a pure Android 7 Nougat experience.

There’s no denying 18:9 displays are the next big thing in the smartphone market and phones like the Cubot X18 will help you get a better display experience without burning a hole in your pocket. It could turn out to be a decent option for part time gamers and video lovers. The Cubot X18 is expected to retail at around $160.

Pre-sale is said to start next week and we’ll keep you updated about the same in the coming days. You can read more about the smartphone and the Cubot brand from here.

    That’s just daft! A phone that looks like this and a pathetic quad core at its heart? The 6737/t has always been entry level and below. Why not spend a few extra (and it really is a few) dollars and put a 6753 or a P10 inside it and make it at least mid range? More people will pay an extra $20 for a mid range chip than this.

        It doesn’t matter. There are better phones available within this price range. If people buy this then they’re just after the look. Cubot could’ve had a massive hit with this phone. Instead they decided to show they’re not capable.

          It does matter, there is a real world out there outside of the internet when things like consumer knowledge, brand recognition, offline stores, convenience etc take effect we can talk theory all day but there are all different types of consumers

    • Riccardo Benzoni

      you forgot mt6750, which is the missing link between 6753 and P10 and which proved to be a real valuable solution for low cost mid range phones.

    Smh the 6737t can handle 1080p do people still think entry level CPUs still lag in real usage UI etc? Only games are a problem

    “At best and entry level chip” what is below entry level?????
