Cheetah 2 is equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD LCD capacitive screen, with a screen resolution of 1080×1920 Pixels. Every single detail on the screen will be brought alive, thanks to the 401PPI density. Its a midrange device released last year, so I wasn’t expecting a bezel-less look. Cubot achieved a 73% screen to body ratio on the Cheetah 2. The brightness of the Cheetah 2 is 30% better than its predecessor. Which keeps the colour bright and makes it clear in the sunlight.
