Cubot X18 Plus - affordable 6 inch smartphone

Cubot presents the Cubot X18 Plus, an upgrade to the 2017 released Cubot X18. In addition to a new design, the 6 inch smartphone also attracts with improved hardware. All information about the smartphone can be found in the following post.

Design and display

The Cubot X18 Plus is a smartphone with an 18: 9 display. The particularly slim housing is typical of smartphones with a display in this format. This means that the device can be easily grasped with one hand, but the elongated display means that one-handed operation over the entire display surface is hardly possible. The display itself has a diagonal of 6 inches with 2160 x 1080 pixels. With a point density of 403 DPI, a razor-sharp display is achieved. The IPS display type ensures high viewing angle stability and equally high color accuracy.

The case dimensions are a length of 15.85 cm, a width of 7.36 and a thickness of 0.85 cm. The weight is comparatively light 178g. Design features include narrow bezel with curved display glass, a simple front due to purely on-screen operation and a shimmering plastic back with a piano lacquer look.

Processor and memory

Under the hood of the Cubot X18 Plus is a now outdated MediaTek MTK6750T processor, which is still popular in budget smartphones despite its age. The MTK6750T System-on-Chip (SoC) is made up of 8 processor cores. These are in turn divided into two clusters. Cluster 1 consists of 4 Cortex-A53 processor cores with a maximum clock rate of 1.5 GHz. Cluster 2 also consists of 4 Cortex-A53 cores, which, however, only clock at 1.0 GHz. The processor graphics is a Mali-T860 MP2 GPU, which is suitable for one or the other mobile game. The memory is generous with a 4GB DDR3 RAM and a 64GB eMMC5.1 flash memory. A memory expansion using a microSD memory card is also possible.

Cubot X18 Plus Review

First reports on the Cubot X18 Plus speak of a consistently smooth usability. Cubot has therefore optimally adapted the Android 8 user interface to the built-in hardware. Nevertheless, you shouldn't expect a performance miracle due to the rather weak processor. Experience has shown that the MediaTek MTK6750T quickly reaches its limits, especially in performance-hungry applications and graphically demanding mobile games!

Camera, battery and others


According to the data sheet, the smartphone is equipped with a dual 20 MP + 2MP main camera and a 13 megapixel front camera. It is unlikely that such equipment would be accommodated in a budget smartphone, which is why Cubot uses a fake dual camera. This is characterized by the fact that the second sensor has no use whatsoever! The non-replaceable battery has a capacity of 4000 mAh. In mobile communications, the Cubot X18 Plus supports the 2G, 3G and 4G mobile frequencies that are common in this country. Further features are a fingerprint scanner, single-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The sensor equipment is limited to a brightness sensor, a proximity sensor and an acceleration sensor. A gyroscope and an e-compass are missing!



The Cubot X18 Plus is a classic smartphone from the low-price segment that aims to score points with a high-resolution 18: 9 display and an accompanying slim design. The MediaTek MTK6750T processor belongs to the older generation, but is an appropriate system-on-chip, especially in the € 100 price range. How the smartphone performs in terms of camera quality remains to be seen. First experience reports speak of a rather poor recording quality, which is mainly due to the high-resolution image sensor. If we receive a test copy, a detailed test report will of course follow!

      Hi Janina, initially the smartphone will be sold exclusively on GearBest. In the coming weeks, other import shops should then include the X18 Plus in their product range. Until it appears on Amazon / eBay with shipping from Germany, it will probably take another month.
