A few days ago we attended the official presentation of Cubot X18 Plus. A phone that follows the current trend of screens with 18:9 aspect ratio and very small frames and arrived with dual rear camera and Android 8.0 Oreo among other elements. However, the company does not stop production in 2018 and is already preparing to launch the Cubot R11. A terminal from which we have just learned some of its most outstanding features.
The Cubot R11 will come with more measured specifications than the Cubot X18 Plus and a more economical price. But even though it is an entry range phone, it will also include an 18:9 aspect ratio on the screen. The main manufacturers have already decided to bring this element to their cheapest terminals. What initially became a fashion for the premium range is beginning to spread to phones of all types of budget.
The R11 Cubot’s features start with a 5.5-inch full-screen design and take advantage of the front panel up to 83%. A very interesting and eye-catching design, with a panel that predicts a perfect degree of visualization for multimedia content, games, etc.
Inside, the Cubot R11 will be powered by a MediaTek MT6580P 4-core processor. A chip that will be accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. This capacity can be expanded up to 128GB with Micro SD card. As you can see, these numbers are a little tight, but they are typical of the entry range in which we are.
The characteristics of the Cubot R11 at photographic level are very interesting for the range in which it is located. Here we see a 13 + 2 megapixel rear dual camera configuration with LED flash and an 8 megapixel front sensor. The latter comes with embellishment system to take some very good selfies.
Of the rest of the Cubot R11 specifications, it is worth highlighting the presence of Android 8.1 Oreo as a standard operating system. In these cases, it is normal for companies to opt for Nougat. However, Cubot wanted to present us with a fully updated smartphone in terms of software. Something that is much appreciated for its price.
Finally, the R11 Cubot battery will be 2,800 mAh. Perhaps there are those who consider this capacity a little too short. But keep in mind that your screen will probably have HD resolution and you don’t need to pull a lot of energy. And the optimisation of consumption by Android Oreo will also have a positive impact. So we will enjoy an autonomy of just over a day without the need for charging.
