Last week, Cubot threw to the market its 6GB RAM beast with a 6000mAh big battery and today it’s turn for the affordable Cubot Nova to make its move. The Nova had initially appeared in the news some 3 months ago as the device that would carry the new MT6739 SoC. The biggest highlight of the SoC is that it supports many network bands and allows for dual 4G FDD/TDD-LTE. The D/U speeds reach 150Mbps/50Mbps and there is dual standby support as well as dual VoLTE. it also supports eMBMS, HPUE, 600MHz frequency band and TAS 2.0 smart antenna system that improve signal reception when holding the phone.
Cubot Nova features a 5.5″ 18:9 HD+ display and has a body size close to traditional 5″ devices. Aside from the new SoC, it also features 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which is a bit low but you can add up to 128GB more via microSD card. There is an 8MP front camera and on the rear, there is a 13MP one along with fingerprint sensor. The battery is just 2800mAh but that’s mostly due to the slim body. Surely, Cubot could have done a better job with the battery but the Android 8.1 should help in that sector with its excellent power management.
As for its price, the Cubot Nova’s current price is just $89.09 and is available on Cubot’s official Aliexpress Store.
