Announcement. Cubot X50 - ultra-thin flagship in the Chinese sense of these words

Another slightly strange product of the Chinese smartphone industry. But with an NFC module, which is valuable.

Cubox X50 has appeared on AliExpress for quite a whilelong. But for some reason, without specifying the brand of the chipset. Now we have finally been informed of it, so there is something to talk about. And the X50 is still missing on the official website. The type of announcement has not yet been ... This is confirmed by the banner on the same AliExpress. The premiere will take place on May 17!

The price at the current time is set, let's say, a protective one. $ 299.98 (₽23,000). Of course, no one will buy this device for that kind of money. Despite the NFC module and other delights.

The weak link is the chipset.The one they didn't want to talk about. MediaTek Helio P60 2018. I can't say that this is a nightmare, a nightmare. But 160-180 thousand points in AnTuTu8 is, by today's standards, the level of state employees, and not three hundred dollar smartphones.

But they did not become greedy with memory. 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of constant. Whether there is support for memory cards is not specified.

With the screen, too, I think there will be complete order.Huge IPS-matrix, 6.67 ″. Nice high resolution - 1080 × 2400 (395 ppi). Nothing is said about the screen refresh rate, so we are waiting for the standard 60 Hz.

Standard battery, 4500 mAh. They do not write about the charging speed. Most likely 10 watts.

There are many cameras, the resolution is high.Front - as much as 32 MP. Behind the quartet 64 + 16 + 5 + 0.3 MP (main module, wide-angle, macro with autofocus and something small incomprehensible). The main sensor is not the freshest, but quite reasonable 2019 Samsung S5KGW1. It was widely used in the mass of solid mid-range smartphones - Realme XT, Redmi Note 8 Pro, etc.

The NFC module, as I said, is there. The fingerprint scanner is correct, lateral. With USB, the same order, normal modern Type-C. There is no information about the number of Wi-Fi bands.

We are waiting for the normal price. What are your bets? Dollars 150?
