Photo Announcement. Cubot P80 - smartphone on a tablet chipset

Cubot has officially revealed all the characteristics of its new smartphone Cubot P80. Obviously an inexpensive smartphone with a lot of memory, for some reason running on a tablet chipset.

With the chipset, of course, we were surprised. MediaTek MT8788 is not very popular and was previously found only in tablets. But in general, it is extremely similar to the super-popular Helio P60. In AnTuTu, we expect around two hundred thousand points. Modestly.

But everything is fine with memory. 8 GB of operational and as much as 256 GB of permanent. Plus there is support for memory cards (hybrid tray).

�The faucet is moderately good. Rather big - 6.53" (103 cm²). The resolution is tall - 1080x2408 (404 ppi). But, of course, there is no increased refresh rate.

Battery plus or minus standard, 5200 mAh. Nothing is said about the charging speed.

Cameras. The front camera has a solid resolution of 24 megapixels. There are three rear cameras, but the set is modest - 48 + 2 + 0.3 MP - the main camera, macro and something else auxiliary.

Other. There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi.

How much Cubot P80 will cost is still unclear. On page withThe price of a smartphone on AliExpress has so far been printed at $249.99 (₽19,700), but this, of course, is too much. I guess a hundred bucks will be thrown off at the start of sales.
