Cube, or Alldocube as it is starting to be called now, have just launched a new tablet in the form of an 8-inch Android 7.0 tablet with unlocked 4G LTE cellular connectivity, 3GB of RAM, a Full HD display, and even good 5MP and 13MP cameras, in the Alldocube / Cube Free Young X5 (or Cube T8 Pro in some markets): https://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_6638623.html
Looking at the hardware in this unboxing, the Cube X5 specs includes a 1.5 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT8783 processor, with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage with support for microSD cards up to 64GB.
Internet connections are established through 2G/3G/4G cellular bands, dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth 4.0.
The sharp 8-inch screen has a color precise Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution display, which is protected by two layers of screen protectors. There’s even a protective film on the back of the tablet upon delivery.
Cube X5 battery life is 5 hours measured by the video playback standard, with 31 days standby time, which comes from the 3800 mAh battery capacity. It has decent stereo speakers, with one the top front, and the other on the side at the bottom, just like a typical Samsung tablet in this size category.
The cameras are indeed a 5MP front camera and a 13MP rear camera with LED flash. The 13 Megapixel camera on the back is the best camera I’ve seen on a Chinese tablet so far, so that itself is sign of a huge shift. The pictures I’ve taken so far turn out sharp and color accurate.
Being a 4G LTE tablet, the Cube X5 also has GPS and Beidou location sensors, g-sensor and vibrator, with the ports being the micro-USB port and 3.5mm audio combo jack.
When the top part of the lid is taken off, we get access to the protected microSD card slot and SIM slots. It seems very well constructed, being a very stiff tablet with no flex, and it’s carved out of an all-metal body, where only the lid is made of plastic.
I weighed the unit to 338 grams with the screen protectors off, with the thickness being 8.8mm.
It was shipped to us packed in bubble wrap, inside of the white box, where the tablet was also protected in a protective bag. The box also contains the micro-USB to full-size USB cable, and a smaller box with the English and Chinese instruction manual and all the warranty documents.
