Semi-announcement. Cubot Pocket is a four-inch mini-smartphone with NFC

Cubot has announced its brand new compact (very compact) smartphone called Cubot Pocket. Unfortunately, however, two important things remain unnamed. Screen resolution and price…

However, I have one assumption about the screen resolution. The fact is that Cubot Pocket is not the first smartphone with a four-inch screen from Cubot. Released at the end of 2020
Cubot King Kong Mini2.(And a year before it, also Cubot King Kong Mini). So our Pocket is very similar in filling to the second King Kong. And that screen has a resolution of 540 × 1080 (302 ppi). And I have a suspicion that the new smartphone has exactly the same.

King Kong Mini2

In general, on the smartphone page on AliExpress, the resolution is 720 × 1570 in small print. But it gave as much as 432 dpi. Which for a compact state employee, in my opinion, is an easy bust. I do not believe!

About other features.

Chipset Unisoc Tiger T310.The one that is the most powerful of the quad cores. Those. AnTuTu will have 140-150 thousand points. Not a lot, but it's better that way - one vigorous processor core and three slow ones - than eight slow cores.

Memory is good. 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. Plus, there is even support for memory cards (hybrid slot).

The battery is not very capacious, 3000 mAh. The cameras are single, 5 MP in front and 13 MP in the back.

Suddenly there is an NFC module, dual-band Wi-Fi and even Type-C. What seems to be missing is a fingerprint scanner.

What will happen to the price is still unclear. AliExpress is now aching for $199.99 (₽13,700). But this is clearly a “pre-sale price” and it is unlikely that it has much in common with the real one.

For comparison, Cubot King Kong Mini2 can now be purchased for $96 (₽6620). But there, however, there is less memory (3+32 GB), and the chipset is weaker.
