At a Display diagonal of 6.8 inches Only one HD display was installed, which with 1352 640 x pixels dissolves. The dot density 220 is PPI, which is why visible pixels can be expected. The panel itself is of type IPS. According to Cubot, the display goes through Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protected. To what extent the manufacturer actually uses Corning branded glass is very difficult to understand. Usually, a Gorilla Glass 5 screen protector in this price range is rather unusual.
An interesting design feature is the Notchthat is not on the top center of the Max 2, but on the right edge of the display. The notch surrounds the 8 megapixel front camera. To what extent the status bar is affected by this remains to be seen. According to Cubot, the Max 2 is largely unchanged Android 9 Pie delivered.

Whether the second sensor actually has a function, will have to show in the test. Especially in the low-budget sector, Chinese smartphone manufacturers are known to block fake sensors! The front camera comes along with it 8 Megapixel on. Again, the information on the image sensor is missing.
