Cubot makes a classic return, introduces the Cubot A5

Cubot A5

Cubot A5 has been quietly introduced by the OEM, this is to make sure the name “Cubot” won’t be forgotten anytime soon. The company won our hearts with the P20 which was built around a notch display and is quite a trend on shopping stores. We also saw the Quest smartphone with Android Pie at the CSES in Hong Kong. The A5, however, targets those on a budget that wants a bigger 3GB RAM and 32GB storage space.
