Looks like same base, but case could be slightly larger. It looks like it lost the volume button. Apparently many colors should be available. It has the same camera placement as KKM2 Pro.

I still wish they'd do more about it, like reduce bezels, make it square thick (feels thinner). Unfortunately they are stuck with battery hungry OS, that is used on phablets.

what software did you use do draw CNC dimensions?
i really don't think it will be 116 mm tall. kkm is 119 mm, and this looks taller.
sorry, have no idea about the software used for it, i took this picture from 4pda forum
but comparing to kkm bezels and assuming same display's size i see the top bezel is lesser than kkm one and others are pretty same
lets wait till launch

Overview and specifications (only partial for now) of the new Cubot Pocket.
Height : 119 mm. :-(
Where is the impovement compared to the KKM / KKM2 ?

The latest model of 2022 (Pocket) has the same form factor and the same screen as a rugged phone of 2019 (KKM) !

Come on, Cubot ! The viewable screen you use measures 90.9 * 45.4 mm (my calculations. I don't own a KKM / KKM2). With the same screen, you can create a phone that would be 100 * 52 mm (screen to body ratio : 79 %. Nothing exceptional).

Improvements: better CPU, more memory, better looks. Good enough for me. The way to think of it is kkm3 with a less polarizing design.

Hello !

Cubot's website said that the screen was "4.0 Inch QHD+".
QHD means "Quad HD". The same as 1440p or 2560*1440 pixels.
The "+" means wider ratio (e.g. 2880*1440 pixels if length is twice the width, like the KKM / KKM2).

But Cubot lied.
Cubot now sells the Pocket on AliExpress.
This gives one more specification : the number of pixels.
It is in fact 1570*720 pixels. This is HD+, NOT QHD+.
I don't like liars, but this is enough pixels on a small screen to my taste.

The problem is that Cubot now uses a 2.18x length/width ratio on the Pocket (1570*720 pixels), resulting in a 56.7 % screen ratio, when it used a 2x (or 18/9) length/width ratio on the KKM and KKM2 (1080*540 pixels), resulting in a 59.8 % screen ratio.

But in fact, it is worse than that : the rugged phone of 2019 (KKM) had a BETTER screen to body ratio as the brand new Pocket !
What a disappointment !

True ! They just updated the specifications ! :D
Maybe they read us !

1080*540 is fine to me. It is more than enough at 302 PPI.
A screen with smaller pixels would require more processing power, but human eyes wouldn't see the difference.

Cubot, if you read us : please make a smaller phone with the same screen.
100 * 52 mm with the same screen should be within reach.
You could even make a smaller phone if you use a screen with round corners.

People who buy 4 inch phones do so because they want a small phone body ; not for the "pleasure" of a small screen. But in the actual lineup, the smaller the phone is, the bigger the borders (and the worse the screen to body ratio) are ! :mad:

Cobus.

Cubot [...] will probably not put a strong CPU in one of their smallest devices
The Cubot Pocket is powered by a Unisoc Tiger T310.

According to CPUbenchmark the T310 should be roughly twice as powerful as the Mediatek MT6761 (what variant ?) that powers the KKM and KKM2.

It has the same ranking as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 that powers the Rakuten Mini released in January 2020. :-(

    CPU is better?

    Being Unisoc, is it more secure, open source? 64 or 32/64 binder.

    Better cores, still 4 though.
