Cubot has just revealed more details about its brand Cubot S600 smartphone. We already know most of the specifications of the device before it officially starts shipping. Now, the company has released new information about the large fingerprint sensor that lies on the back of the phone.
According to the latest information, the Cubot S600 will feature the No.GSL6163MSB2 fingerprint chip from the Shanghai-based fingerprint company, Silead. This is one of the biggest smartphone fingerprint sensors available in the market with a size of 12 x 12mm. It is said that the chip can optimize the unlocking process based on the different types of fingerprints. This helps in the identifying the fingerprint efficiently.
The company further adds that the sensor can unlock the phone in just 0.3 seconds. If true, this would really be impressive. That’s comparable to the unlock speeds from flagship level smartphones like Apple iPhone 6 and OnePlus 2.
You will also get to add a few custom features to fingerprint. It is said that Cubot S600’s fingerprint could be used to encrypt apps and for other functions like selfie, online payments etc. However, at this moment, we are not quite sure which functions will be available right from the start. Some features could be added in the upcoming updates.
As for the specs, the Cubot S600 will come with 2.5D glass and 5-inch HD 720p resolution IPS display, MediaTek MT6735A 1.3GHz quad-core chip with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 2700mAh battery, and dual-SIM dual standby with 4G LTE support.
The S600 is already available for pre-order at $129.99 and will start shipping from 10th January.
