As we all know, CUBOT’s “J” series phones are known for their excellent price/performance ratio. For example, the CUBOT J3 and J3 Pro released in 2018 are generally priced below $99, or even as low as $49.99. Although they are very cheap, this does not mean that their materials are very cheap, they are only a little low-end configuration, facing the user community is not the same. Time came to February 2019, CUBOT company tasted the sweetness in the low-end mobile phone market, so they are ready to hit the iron and continue to launch a new cheaper smartphone called CUBOT J5.

5.5″ high-definition large screen, the screen ratio is up to 83%. It offers good visual feast for viewing videos and exciting internet surfing experience.

Compared to the 16: 9 screen, 18: 9 screen display has a larger view sphere to help quickly catch the enemy’s position.
