The midrange Coolpad Cool 1 hops onto the dual-camera bandwagon

Dual cameras will be to 2017 what the fingerprint scanner was to 2016

Fingerprint scanner, dual-cameras and a mid-range Snapdragon all under ₹15k? The Cool 1 ticks off all the boxes.

Coolpad’s decided to kick off the new year with the Cool 1. Do excuse the horrible name ‘cos this new device sure seems like a great deal (on paper, at least).



So, what we get is a 5.5in (Full HD, of course) device running LeEco’s EUI. Power users on a budget should be pleased with the Cool 1’s 4GB RAM and Snapdragon 652 processor. Other specs include 32GB storage (but no expansion options), a fingerprint scanner, a 4000mAh battery, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and USB Type-C charging.

But what sets the Cool 1 apart from the competition is its cameras. There’s an 8MP camera up front, but flip it over and you’ll find a 13MP dual-camera system, with PDAF and the ability to take shots with the background all blurry.

The Coolpad Cool 1 will retail at ₹13,999 exclusively on Amazon India.
