You can choose between three colors

As can be expected from a terminal that does not exceed the 200 euro barrier in its launch price, the choice of manufacturing materials will not be of a high quality Nor can you expect design details such as a complete elimination of the bezels around its panel or other unconventional elements.

However, Cubot Note 21 is adapted to modern times, especially for a young audience Maybe you want a little more originality in your design style. Thus, on the back you will come across a black rectangular module that occupies almost a third of its structure and where its camera configuration is located, while in front you will have the front camera arranged in a notch in the shape of a drop of water. .

Likewise, this Smartphone offers you a little more vitality with its available alternative colors, since in addition to a classic black color you can opt for a vibrant orange tone or even a green option (almost light blue depending on the reflection of the light). Its official dimensions remain at 165.75 mm x 75.9 mm x 10.55 mm, while its total weight is 214 grams.

Performance with extra RAM

At the performance level everything starts with a 6.56-inch screen in IPS quality that will answer you 20:9 native aspect ratio and will give you a native resolution of 1612 x 720 pixels, perhaps one of its most negative points in the analysis for being unable to reach the already standard Full HD format. In its favor is a refresh rate capable of exceeding the average with 90 Hz.

If you take into account that the most basic models of this brand launched this year even go down to 4-inch panels as seen in the Cubot J20, It could be considered an acceptable sacrifice when it comes to spending less money than usual.

Inside, The processor is an eight-core Unisoc T606 clocked at 1.6 GHzso it is clear that it is not designed for tasks that go beyond classic navigation, consumption of videos, music or use of social networks, but Yes, it is appreciated that you have enough storage space with 128 GB from the factory with the ability to expand up to an additional 128 GB via microSD card.

As if this were not enough, one of the most outstanding elements of Cubot Note 21 rests on its 6 GB of RAM memory that ensure enough fluidity for multi-tasking or even some applications that are a little more demanding than usual, as well as virtual memory technology that allows you to use up to an additional 6 GB from the storage space you have free.
