Cubot Pocket: Ultra-small smartphone launches globally with a 4-inch display and Android 11
The Cubot Pocket debuted last month, but it has taken until now for the company to start selling the handset. Available across multiple markets, the Cubot Pocket measures 119 x 58 x 12.5 mm and weighs 128 g. For context, these dimensions make the Cubot Pocket slightly shorter and thicker than the iPhone 5 but 4 mm taller than the iPhone 3GS.
Incidentally, the Cubot Pocket also has a 4-inch display, matching the iPhone 5. According to Cubot, the smartphone's display outputs at 1,080 x 540 pixels, a particularly low-resolution panel for a smartphone released in 2022. In fact, the Cubot Pocket has a lower resolution display than the iPhone 5, which Apple released in 2022. Still, the Cubot Pocket relies on a 3,000 mAh battery, which should provide decent runtimes.
Moreover, Cubot has equipped the Pocket with a Unisoc T310 chipset, plus 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage. Cubot adds that the device runs Android 11 out of the box with 16 MP rear-facing and 5 MP front-facing cameras. Thankfully, Cubot has also included a USB Type-C port, rather than the older micro USB standard. Currently, the Cubot Pocket retails for €169.99 on Amazon Germany and US$119.99 on AliExpress. Both retailers offer the smartphone in three colours, shown in Cubot's marketing images.
