CUBOT X18 Plus available exclusively on Gearbest — FHD+ 18:9 display for less than $80!
If you are in the market for an affordable 18:9 smartphone, you might want to check out this device here. The CUBOT X18 Plus won’t set any benchmark records, but if its a modern design you want, this one right here should satisfy you.
The chipset under the hood is a Mediatek MT6750T octa-core SoC, mated to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The battery is pretty big at 4000 mAh for all day long battery life. Top that off with Android 8.0 Oreo and you get the latest optimizations to squeeze as much as you can out of the hardware.
On the imaging front, you will be getting a 13MP front camera and a 20MP + 2MP rear dual camera system. The rear cameras work together to deliver bokeh effects. Also on the back is fingerprint sensor, which CUBOT claims to unlock the device in a mere 0.1 seconds.

Pokdepinion: The Mediatek MT6750T chipset may not be the best, but it should do well to power this entry-level device. At least the screen here features a higher resolution than the one in the ZenFone Max Plus M1.
