Coolpad is all set to launch its new smartphone in India. The Chinese telecommunication company is holding an event in the capital city on March 16, 2017, where it is expected to launch its next smartphone offering. Invites related to the upcoming event have been sent out. The company has also released several teasers on its social media platforms. Here are 5 Things To Expect From Upcoming Coolpad Smartphone:
Design & Display
Coolpad is expected to launch a successor to its successful Note 5 smartphone. However, instead of a Note 5 Lite, the company might bring a surprise. As per the social media teasers, the upcoming smartphone is likely to the Indian version of Coolpad Conjr. The sleek looking smartphone has already been launched in the US market. It sports a 5-inch IPS display with full HD resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. In its adverts, the company has been hinting at a smaller size, which also increases the likelihood of it being Conjr.
The upcoming device for Indian is likely to be powered a quad-core MediaTek MT6735P processor along with 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 64 GB via a micro SD card. The US version runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
In terms of camera, the new Coolpad device is expected to sport a 13MP rear camera with auto-focus and f/2.2 aperture. It is also expected to sport a big 8MP front camera for selfies.
The upcoming smartphone is expected to be backed by a 2,500mAh battery. Since Indian consumers are quite particular about battery power, we might see a surprise bump in this area.
No specific information about the price of the upcoming smartphone has been revealed yet. While the US version of Coolpad Conjr was priced a bit high – at $180 (approx. INR 12,200), the Indian version is expected to be priced more competitively. Coolpad has been consistent in bringing smartphones in the sub-15K segment. We can expect the Chinese firm to stay consistent with its ‘value for money’ philosophy.
