Coolpad is all set to establish a new standard of specifications for the budget smartphone segment with the launch of its new Cool Play 6. The handset comes with 6 GB of RAM and two rear cameras. However, the China-based company has managed to price it at merely Rs 14,999. The Cool Play 6 will be an Amazon-exclusive, available starting from September 4th.
The smartphone shares a similar aesthetic to previous Coolpad products featuring a unibody metal design and a curved back. There’s a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS panel up front coupled with off-screen capacitive buttons. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s good old Snapdragon 653 octa-core processor, Adreno 510 GPU, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage and a 4000 mAh non-removable battery. Unfortunately, you cannot expand the memory through an SD card.
The rear camera arrangement includes two 13-megapixel lenses, dual-tone LED flashes and a front-facing 8-megapixel f/2.2 shooter. On the software front, Coolpad includes Android Nougat (7.1.1) out-of-the-box overlaid by a custom skin called “Journey UI”. The company is also promising an OTA for Android 8.0 by the end of this year. Moreover, the handset comes with a fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM support, and a USB Type-C port. The Coolpad Cool Play 6 will be available in two color options – Gold and Black.
Commenting further on the launch, James Du, Global CEO, Coolpad Group, said, “India and U.S has now become two of the largest markets for Coolpad overseas. We have always believed in launching products that start a trend in the market and Cool 6 is yet another winner from Coolpad. The response we have got from our consumers over the years with every launch has been overwhelming and we are touched by the love of our Cool fans. We are confident that with R&D capabilities and quality products, we will be able to gain an even larger market share in India and other regions. Apart from that we are also coming with exclusive Coolpad services centers in India with plan to have these in at least 5 cities in next 6 months.”
