International mobile firm Cubot has finally made its widely anticipated Cubot Note S flagship smartphone available in Kenya.
The new phone retails at Sh 8,888 (that’s about 17,500 Naira), and has been made possible through Cubot’s partnership with Kenyan online retailer, Kilimall.
The Chinese firm in addition appointed Kilimall as the exclusive distributor of the brand in Kenya and the East African region.
“The use of the African inspired Kenyan designs has increased the phone’s appeal both locally and globally,” Kilimall Marketing Director Larry Liu noted.
“Our market research for Africa pointed to a very high appreciation of the Cubot brand in Kenya,” he added.
The Cubot Note S comes in a 5.5-inch (1280×720 resolutions) HD display and runs Android Lollipop operating system out of the box. It is powered by a powerful 4150mAh battery which is touted to serve the average user for at least two days.
Under the hood, the device is powered by a 1.3GHz processor which is further coupled with Mali 400mp GPU and 2GB of RAM.
In addition, the smartphone sports 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD slot. The Cubot Note S will be available in Matte Black, Champagne Gold & Pearl White and pink colour options.
The Cubot Note S comes with dual SIM features, enabling users to freely tailor their phone use to their preferences. Its dual-SIM works with both 2G and 3G networks.
There’s also an 8 megapixel rear on the phone and a 5 megapixel front camera is also available for taking good quality selfies and making video calls. It also comes with several customized covers.
The launch in Kenya is considered global and it was done in the East African country in honour of Kenyan artists who designed the phone’s cover. According to Killimall, the Cubot Note S can be ordered from all parts of the world.
