In the past few months, we haven’t seen any new products from many smaller Chinese manufacturers. While Coolpad is one among them, it has now silently launched a new smartphone called Coolpad Cool 2 in China. While the company mentioned the Cool 2 as a waterproof smartphone, we expect it to be only water resistant. Talking about the build quality, the device comes with a metal unibody design.
There is an 18:9 display on the front and iPhone X-like vertically aligned dual cameras on the rear. Even with the 18:9 display, the Cool 2 sports relatively thick bezels on all four sides. It sports a 5.7-inch display on the front with HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is the 64-bit MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor coupled with Mali T-860 GPU and 4GB of RAM. There is 64GB of internal storage that can be further expandable using the MicroSD card slot.
Coming to the cameras, the Cool 2 sports dual cameras on the rear with 13MP and 0.3MP sensors. For selfies, there is an 8MP front-facing camera. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with customized skin laid on top. With all these specifications, the device is backed by a 3,200mAh non-removable battery and lacks fast charging support. The Coolpad Cool 2 measures 154.7 x 73.3 x 9.0 mm.
Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. The power button and volume rocker are placed on the left edge of the device. On the rear, we can also spot the fingerprint sensor. However, the device can also be unlocked using the face unlock option. As of now, the pricing and availability of the smartphone is not yet known. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
