Coolpad has announced the launch of its latest flagship smartphone the Coolpad Note 5 Lite C. The phone will be available for purchase starting from August 5 via offline only. It will also be available on Amazon from August 20. Ever since the launch of its first phone, Coolpad has been selling smartphones only on Amazon, ┬ábecause of which everyone couldn’t get hands on one of these. This new smartphone will be available in two colour option, Grey and Gold.

Design

Coolpad Note 5 lite C is the company’s first smartphone that runs on Android 7.1 (based on Cool UI) out of the box. It has a full metal body. The phone has 3.5 mm jack at the top and a USB charging slot and speaker grill at the bottom. On the left we have the volume rocker keys and on the right the power button. At the rear there’s a fingerprint sensor mounted right below the camera. In the front there’s no home button but Coolpad has provided capacitive keys for navigation.

Moving on to the processor, its powered by Snapdragon 210 clocked at 1.1GHz paired with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 304 GPU. The phone has 16GB internal storage and also a microSD slot which can be expanded upto 64GB

 

Optics

Coolpad devices always have good camera even under 10K and we hope it maintains it stands with this launch. It has 8 MP rear camera with autofocus, f/2.4 aperture and support for flash. On the rear, there’s a 5 MP camera that also has f/2.4 aperture.

Savvydroid’s View:

Coolpad has been ranked one of the bestseller in online marketspace. Coolpad Note 5 Lite C is the watered down version of its big daddy Coolpad Note 5. Earlier this year Coolpad Note 5 lite was launched which was the nerf version of Note 5, and Coolpad has done it again with this launch. We feel Coolpad should have done more to this launch as the processors aren’t that powerful. Coolpad is playing safe by renewing its old smartphone with new name and adding few extra specs. But after all, this phone isn’t that bad for regular users. Stay tuned for more details.
