A while back, Coolpad launched its Mega 3 smartphone in India which was one of its kind featuring ‘Triple SIM’ support. The same company has now launched “Cool 1“, the first phone in Cool series produced with joint efforts from LeEco and Coolpad. Similar to Coolpad Mega 3, the Cool 1 sports a distinguishing feature in the form of dual rear cameras in a mid-range smartphone, something that’s unusual at the moment.
Coolpad Cool 1 features a metal unibody design that looks premium and packs a 5.5″ Full HD display @401ppi. The device is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 652 processor clocked at 1.8GHz with Adreno 510 GPU and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Under the hood, it has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage but lacks a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The fingerprint sensor is at the back right below the primary camera and an Infrared sensor is included too.
The main highlight of the Cool 1 is its Dual 13MP cameras at the back with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash, 4K video recording and 720p slow-motion video @120fps. The dual camera setup helps in taking shots with bokeh effect and quality photos in low light condition. The front camera is an 8MP one with f/2.2 aperture.
Cool 1 is also equipped with a large 4000mAh non-removable battery with support for fast charging. In terms of connectivity, it offers 4G VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n (2.4/5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, FM Radio, USB Type-C port and Dual SIM support (nano + nano-SIM).
Cool 1 comes in Silver and Gold colors. It is priced at Rs 13,999 in India and will be available for purchase from January 5th onwards exclusively on Amazon.in through open sales.
