Cubot smartphones available in South Africa

Smartphones are no longer a luxury item but a necessity for obvious and various reasons in this day and age.

Price is often a deciding factor and consumers are frequently forced to compromise on features and quality because of this.

The arrival of Cubot means that consumers don’t have to compromise anymore.

Arbalest is the exclusive importers of the brand since November 2016 and brings the latest in affordable smartphones to South Africa.

Although Cubot is still relatively unknown locally, it is starting to make waves in other parts of the world like Europe, South America, Saudi Arabia, Russia and now South Africa.

The current stars of the Android smartphone range are the Cubot Rainbow 2, the Cubot Echo and the Cubot Cheetah 2.

These smartphones range from 5 to 5.5 inches in size, all with 13MP rear cameras and 5 to 8MP selfie cameras.

The Cubot Rainbow 2 has dual rear cameras for sharper photos with better colour reproduction.

Storage is also quite impressive with the smallest being 16GB and the biggest 32GB with all having expandable storage to 128 or 256GB through SD cards.

Cubot smartphones don’t only sport great features, but they are also affordable.

Recommended retail prices range from R1 599 to R3 499.

Arbalest together with Cubot are making it possible for more consumers to own good quality smartphones without having to forego on features of more expensive ones.

Cubot products are available through Cellucity, PC Worx Rustenburg and Fashion Power amongst others.
