Coolpad recently marked its entry into the Indian market, with a super good budget phone, the Coolpad Note 3. It indeed was one of the most affordable devices with a fingerprint scanner, and the scanner was actually much better than some of the mid-range phones out there. Just to continue the trend of value-for-money devices, Coolpad has launched the Note 3 Lite in India.
It is a budget phone with 5-inch HD display, and there are quite a few differences from the larger variant, i.e. the Note 3, not just with the size but also with the internal specs. It is the Mediatek MT6735 (quad-core 64-bit) processor powering the phone, along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage.
The camera combination included in the device is similar to the Note 3, as we see a 13-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The Cool UI from the company is what gets layered over Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, and the phone has a 2500 mAh battery packed in. According to Coolpad, there is also a self-cooling technique included with integrated metal shell, nano-sealing and nano ice-spacer around the chipset.
The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is priced at Rs. 6999, and given that price, no other phone has a perfectly working fingerprint scanner but Coolpad has included one, with a self-learning feature. It is the new Fingerprint 2.0 technology, which 0.5-second unlock, fingerprint selfie, app lock and fingerprint payment. The phone supports 4G LTE connectivity.
The phone will be available from 14:00 hours, January 28th on Amazon India, and the registration begins from today. Apart from the device launch, Coolpad also mentioned that it is going to begin its R&D focus in India very soon.
