Cubot X19 Design And Display
The 5.93-inch display here which has a 1080p screen resolution and 408ppi uses the somewhat old 18:9 aspect ratio which leaves just enough room up top for the front-facing camera, speaker grill and other sensors. Asides from the top bezels and chin, there are almost no bezels on the sides. At the back sits the rear-facing camera, an LED flash and a fingerprint sensor for biometric verification.
It also has another Biometric verification method which is FaceID through the front-facing camera. This device measures 9.5mm in thickness thanks to the massive battery on the inside and comes in Black and Gradient as it’s colour options. It also has a dual Hybrid SIM slot which means the second SIM slot doubles as a microSD card slot for additional storage.
