Cubot Rainbow Android 6.0 Smartphone with MediaTek MT6580 CPU, 1GB RAM, and 16GB of Storage

While on my way looking for any less than $100 smartphone with Android 6.0 platform, I spotted this 5-inch handset along with other handsets with quad-core chips. Cubot Rainbow is the small brother of the 5.5-inch Cubot Note S. Both are treated with the same MediaTek MT6580 CPU and small differences in terms of RAM and storage capacity.

The said 5-inch Chinese phone is expected to hit the market with the newest version of Android with less than $100 prices. The base specs of Cubot Rainbow is equipped with 1GB of memory and 16GB of flash storage. For prospect buyers who are looking for low-cost and budget-friendly smartphone with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), this might be their right choice.

Furthermore, to know more about Cubot Rainbow, see the following table below:

In addition, Doogee X5 is another 5-inch handset with the same chip to Cubot Rainbow and Note S. However, the other brand is treated with 8GB of storage capacity and Android 5.1. But both are designed to support a maximum of 32GB of extended flash storage and can offer few of underlying specs.

And before I can forget, Cubot Rainbow is also a dual-SIM enabled handset with shortcomings in terms of memory and battery capacity.
