The Chinese tech company Coolpad is going to launch its Cool 3 smartphone in India today, February 5, 2019. The company had shared a teaser for the phone since the beginning of the month. Before the launch of the phone, the company had revealed some major highlights of the phone along with its price. The Coolpad Cool 3 will probably sell under Rs 6,000.
And under that price range, Coolpad will be giving its users the dewdrop notch display, which is definitely a surprise. The notched display was seen in the teased image released by the company. Also, the phone will be running Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, which comes across as a double whammy.
The notch has been brought to the entry smartphone segment by companies like Redmi and Realme, but this will be the first time Coolpad is bringing a notched display smartphone in this price category. The company is known for giving good spec phones at a very affordable price, so the Cool 3 will be no exception. The phone will have a glossy back panel with many colour options to choose from. The specifications of the phone hasn’t been revealed by the company yet. The spec sheet will be released by the company with the phone itself.
Coolpad’s last smartphone in India was the Coolpad Mega 5A, which came with a 5.45-inch HD display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. It sported a fingerprint scanner at the back and at the front was the face unlock feature. It was powered by the 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM along with 16GB of storage. The storage could further be expanded by up to 128GB. The Coolpad Mega 5A had a dual rear camera setup of 8MP and 0.3MP camera along with a 5MP camera at the front. It had a 2,500mAh battery and ran on Android 8.1 Oreo.
With the release of Cool 3 the company wishes to give the consumers good features at an affordable price. So, people who want a simple phone with a notched display and good specs, but don’t want to spend too much money can look forward to it.
