You can ignore this article, and find the accurate information here: http://cute-android-phones.net/cubot-a6589-latest-news-and-accurate-release-date.html
On the first MTK6589 quad-core Android phone, it seems that we are all wrong. Just not too long ago, we have made sure that TCL P600 would be the first Android phone that equipped with MTK6589 quad-core processor, and TCL also has confirmed that officially. However, that is not true. The first MTK6589 smart phone has landed online, but it is not the TCL P600. It is the Cubot A6589. Right now, some online stores can support presale for the Cubot A6589. And the price of Cubot A6589 is about US $260, which is much than the US $325. Of course, you should learn more details on Cubot A6589 before you decide to buy it. OK, let’s make a review for Cubot A6589 here together.
For most of the users, they may do not know the Cubot brand. In fact, Cubot A6589 is not the first smart phone from it. It has released many products already, such as the Cubot A8809. So far, the feedbacks on Cubot A8809 from the users are very good. You can’t imagine that the screen size on Cubot A6589 can reach at 5.7 inch, which is even larger than the 5.5 inch on Samsung Galaxy Note II. Moreover, the screen resolution of this huge screen also can reach at 720P (1280 x 720 pixels) level. From these figures on screen, we can make sure that the display effect on Cubot A6589 is too much inferior to Samsung Galaxy Note II at least. Above the screen close to the left corner, the 2.0MP front camera is there. And beside the sound receiver on the right side, the light and distance sensors are there. In addition, under the screen on the bottom, there is also a physical home button. It seems that Cubot A6589 is designed according to the Samsung Galaxy Note II, because it is too much similar with Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Then let’s move to the back cover. In the middle place on the top, Cubot A6589 is equipped with the main camera, and the resolution of the camera can reach at astonishing 13.0MP (Right now, it has been proved to be at 10.0MP by the official.), which is only 8.0MP on Samsung Galaxy Note II. And the complemented LED flashlight is beside the camera at the left side, which is at right side on Samsung Galaxy Note II. And the speaker is also designed into two-stripe style at the bottom left. Right now, we can make a conclusion for the appearance design on Cubot A6589. The appearance of Cubot A6589 is very similar to Samsung Galaxy Note II, and the outside configurations on Cubot A6589 are not inferior to Samsung Galaxy Note II, and some are even better.
Now, please move your eyes on the inside hardware configurations. As I have mentioned above, the quad-core processor inside Cubot A6589 is the MTK6589, which is based on Cortex-A7 frame and can provide 1.2GHz frequency. You should know that the performance of the MTK6589 is very powerful. However, the matching RAM and ROM are only 1GB and 8GB respectively. Now in the market, 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM are the main stream. Fortunately, Cubot A6589 is available with Bluetooth, GPS, 3G and a 3000mAh like Samsung Galaxy Note II, though the battery inside Samsung Galaxy Note II can reach at 3100mAh, and the Bluetooth is the upgraded 4.0 version.
Last, if you have decided to buy the Cubot A6589, you need to know where to buy it. As I have said at the beginning, Cubot A6589 is only accepted presale right now. If you want to make a reservation, you can try the following online stores. At Pandawill, the price is US $259.99, and GeekBuying is the same. However, the price is a litter lower at US $258.99 at McBub.
