It has a MediaTek MT6750T octa-core SoC paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. Despite the 28nm SoC is not going to score extremely well in any of the benchmarks, nonetheless, it should perform relatively well in real life situations.
At the front is a huge 5.99-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. For a phone of the size of iPhone 6 Plus, you’re getting more screen real estate thanks to the new popular display ratio.
The dual camera at the back has 20MP + 2MP configuration to simulate bokeh effects. The f/2.0 aperture allows more light to pass through the lens and reach the sensor for excellent low light performance.
Powering all those hardware is the non-removable 4000 mAh battery. Cubot manage to keep the device slim and gorgeous even with a large built-in battery.
The operating system itself is no other than the world’s most popular mobile OS – Android. Cubot is releasing the X18 Plus with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo which many of the other smartphones out there have still yet received the update.
