Coolpad has announced the successor to their Note 3 Smartphone in the form of Note 5, skipping the Note 4 naming. The new handset from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is literally a beast when considered the price it comes with. As it is priced at Rs 10,999 and would be going on open sale exclusively on Amazon India from October 20.
Just in time for the festive season, the new Note 5 arrived with a bang. Concerning the design language, it comes with a metal unibody design. Many brands have adopted such unibody style. There is a premium-ness to the look and feel of the device. On top is a 2.5D curved glass front similar to what we saw on Mega 2.5D.
You get a 5.5-inch Full HD display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 617 Octa-core processor that is coupled with a 4GB of RAM. The processor might not be as powerful as Snapdragon 650, but it should be good enough to carry heavy duty tasks at once, but not all at a time. It has a 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 64GB via microSD card slot. On the software part, it has a Cool 8 UI that is based on the Android Marshmallow 6.0.
Regarding the camera department, it has a 13-megapixel image sensor on the rear with a LED Flash support. While for selfie lovers it has an 8-megapixel snapper with 80-degree wide-angle lens, f/2.2 aperture and LED Flash. The Coolpad’s handset comes with a fingerprint sensor placed on the rear side just below the cameras.
It is packed with a 4010 mAh capacity battery that should be quite good enough for a day’s charge. The company touts that it can give 350 hours of standby time and 14 hours of talk time. There is a support of Quick Charging, which would allow the battery to be charged quickly. In terms of the connectivity options, it has a 4G network with VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB port.
