Chinese smartphone company Coolpad has unveiled a toned down model of Note 5 device, the CoolPad Note 5 Lite for Rs.8,199 which will go on sale on March 21 exclusively on Amazon.
The device, which shares the same name as its bigger sibling is supposed to help Coolpad leave a mark in the sub-Rs.10,000 market with a promising launch.
The device will come in two coolours — Gold and Grey.
“We are excited to launch the successor of the widely popular Note 5 which received an overwhelming response from customers and emerged as a disruptive product in the market,” said Syed Tajuddin, CEO, Coolpad India.
The company plans to launch 3 more devices before Diwali festivities begin and are hoping to gain the top spot among exclusive handset brands on Amazon — they are currently ranked among the top 3.
“With the launch of Note 5 Lite, we are again reinforcing our commitment to making technology available to everyone at a great price and won’t compromise on best in class features,” he added.
The Coolpad Note 5 Lite will be powered by quad-core MediaTek MT6735CP SoC which clocks at 1GHz, supported by Mali-T720 GPU.
Display and Design
The device features a 5-inch HD display with a 2.5D curved glass with a 70.6% screen-to-body ratio and is made out of an aluminium magnesium alloy, making it lightweight and sturdy.
The Coolpad Note 5 Lite sports a 13MP rear camera and 8MP front camera — both of these are equipped with a LED flash to make low-light photography easier.
Memory and Storage
The device also features 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card.
Battery and OS
The upcoming Coolpad device will run on Android Marshmallow, with a Nougat update unlikely in the near future. It is backed by a 2500mAh battery with a company claimed standby time of 200 hours.
The device supports 4G LTE with dual sim support, has a 3.5mm audio jack, a micro-USB charging port and the fingerprint sensor is located on the back panel of the device, below the rear camera.
