Coolpad India launched its new smartphone in India called Coolpad Note 5 on Friday. The smartphone will be available exclusive via Amazon India from October 20, priced at Rs. 10,999. Coolpad says the smartphone will be available in an open sale model.
As far as the design is concerned the Coolpad Note 5 smartphone bears a metal-unibody dual-SIM, this something we have seen companies increasingly adopt on smartphones in this range. It adds a premium-ness, and is much better than devices featuring plastic bodies. Adding to this the phone comes with a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display with 2.5D Curved Glass and a pixel density of 401ppi.
The smartphone runs Cool UI 8.0, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 617 SoC, coupled with the Adreno 405 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
The Coolpad Note 5 bears a 13-megapixel real camera with a dual-LED flash, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with its own LED flash module and a 'smart beautification feature'. The smartphone bears 32GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card (up to 64GB) – in a hybrid dual-SIM configuration, which means users can either use a second SIM card or a microSD card.
The Note 5 bears a fingerprint scanner on the back panel that's touted to unlock the smartphone in 0.5 seconds. It also supports gesture shortcuts, as well as support for both left and right hand input. The company notes that the Coolpad Note 5 supports all 4G bands in India, with 4G VoLTE support as well.
The Coolpad Note 5 sports a Dual Space system that was first seen on the Coolpad Max, and enables users to have two accounts of WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, and other apps on the same phone.
