Cubot Note 21

Perhaps we can say that we have a downgrade heresmartphone Cubot Note 50. The devices look different, but the characteristics are very similar. Well, they took away the NFC module and the fingerprint scanner. The memory has been reduced from 8+256 GB to 6+128 GB. And the rest of what was, is what remains.|Cubot Note 50|Cubot Note 50

The chipset is the well-known Unisoc T606 (~270K in AnTuTu10).

The screen has a diagonal of 6.56″ (103 cm²). The resolution is low, only 720×1612 (269 ppi). But the refresh rate is slightly increased - 90 Hz.

The battery is good, 5200 mAh. But there is no fast charging.

The set of cameras is simple and clear. 8 MP front, 50+2 MP rear. We don't expect anything special from them.

Cubot Note 21 has already appeared on AliExpress. But the current price of $199.98 (₽19500) looks frankly overpriced.
