Announcement. Cubot King Kong Mini2 - 4-inch, slightly protected

On AliExpress in the official Cubot storethe Cubot King Kong Mini2 smartphone appeared. Costs $ 159.99 (₽12,200). It is the successor to last year's Cubot King Kong Mini. Like its progenitor, it is a very small smartphone by modern standards. Moreover, in a brutal body.

Cubot official website for model informationnot yet. And with what accuracy the information about models for AliExpress is filled in, we all know perfectly well. So I cannot vouch for one hundred percent accuracy of the characteristics.

As far as can be judged from the information thatthere are now, there are exactly two differences from KingKong Mini in KingKong Mini2. The battery capacity has grown - from 2000 to 3000 mAh. Plus, they delivered a fresh tenth Android. Otherwise, everything seems to be unchanged.

Perhaps the dimensions and weight could have changed slightly. But there is no information about them. The KingKong Mini measures 119 x 58 x 12.1mm and weighs 124 grams. The Mini2 is probably a little heavier.

Protection from water, dust and drops is promised. But the manufacturer does not speak about IP68 or MIL-STD-810. So personally, I would not risk dropping or even washing this smartphone under the tap.

The iron filling is weak. Chipset MediaTek Helio A22 2018, about 70 thousand AnTuTu points. 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage. There is support for memory cards - a separate slot.

The screen is curious. IPS-matrix with a diagonal of 4 ″. The proportions are relatively modern, 18: 9. The resolution looks low, only 540 × 1080. But on such a modest diagonal, it gives a normal 302 ppi.

Front camera 8 MP. The main camera looks like a double, but the second module, apparently, like its predecessor, is fake. The resolution of the main module is 13 MP. It's better not to wait for high-quality pictures.

No NFC, no fingerprint scanner. Nothing is said about Wi-Fi, but it should be dual-band - again, like its predecessor.
