If you are looking for a phone with a limited budget or really low budget, then one name which comes to our mind is Coolpad. Coolpad has launched some cool phones in a budget that ranges between 5K to 10K. Even within a low budget, Coolpad has delivered some really good phones in the Indian market. And, even through Coolpad might not be famous like Mi or Honor, but it definitely it is quite popular in the budget segment. We can bet on this, since Coolpad has not stopped, and kept on launching one phone after another. A company will do this, only if it has found a steady market for itself. In this article, we are going to discuss Coolpad Cool 3 Plus, which is the new offering of Coolpad. This has been already launched in India, and we will recommend, whether you should buy this phone or not.
Coolpad Cool 3 Plus extends the line up of Coolpad portfolio in India. If you are already aware of Cool 3 or at least seen its demo in some store or YouTube, you will realize that Cool 3 plus is just an extension of Cool 3, with enhanced features. Cool 3 Plus has got a dewdrop notch, which gives it a look of a premium phone. The dewdrop notch was not available in Cool 3. So, yes when you look at the Cool 3 Plus model, you might not find the external looks same as Cool 3. It is much more refined as well as elegant.
Cool 3 Plus has got a 13 MP primary camera or the rear camera. It will also have a fingerprint sensor. The phone will directly rival Realme C2 and Redmi 6A, even these two phones are quite popular in the budget segment. However, Cool 3 Plus clearly beat Realme C2 & Remi 6A in design and dual 4G support. Apart from that, it has got a bigger battery that these two phones. Cool 3 Plus has got a 3000 mAh battery, which is quite good for a budget phone.
The phone will have a screen of 5.71 inches with an IPS LCD display. It will support a resolution of 720x1520px, with 295 PPI. The phone will support an aspect ratio of 19:9. It is true that at this price point, you cannot expect a bezelless but Coolpad has managed to develop a phone that has actually got a very thin bezel, along with a slim chin. Coolpad Cool 3 supports face unlock feature, along with a fingerprint sensor located at the rear.
Now, let’s talk about the core hardware, that is responsible for performance. The phone will be equipped with a quad-core 2.0 GHz MediaTek Helio A22 processor. In terms of RAM, it will be sold in two configurations, that is 2GB RAM with 16 GB storage and 3GB RAM with 32 GB storage. Obviously, considering today’s mobile usage, neither 2 GB nor 3GB is enough. So, yes if you are looking to play midrange videos or watch HD videos or planning to run multiple applications, then definitely you should not buy this phone. It’s a budget offering, and you should not expect much from this phone in terms of performance, except for basic usage. The good thing is you can always expand the storage to 256 GB through a memory card when you want to.
When it comes to the camera, there is one major change. You won’t get the dual camera setup which was originally there in Cool 3. The dual camera setup is gone now, and the rear camera sports 13MP lens, in single camera setup. The rear camera is AI-powered. On the other hand, the front camera sports an 8 MP lens, with a single-tone, LED flash. The camera is average and can click decent pictures.
The smartphone will have dual SIM slots, where each of the slots can support a 4G SIM. It has also got USB OTG support, which is pretty cool considering the price. Apart from that, it has got Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi for connectivity. Cool 3 Plus will be equipped with a light sensor and proximity sensors.
Now let’s talk about the price, which is definitely the biggest attraction for this phone. We know, a customer will be initially attracted towards this phone, only for the price. And, maybe he might sneak through the features at a later stage. The base model, which comes with 2GB RAM will be priced at Rs.5,999. While the advanced variant, which will have 3GB RAM will be priced at Rs.6,499. So, if you look at the price, it is quite moderate considering the fact this is a smartphone. The device will be launched in two colors, Ocean Blue and Cherry Black. The Coolpad Cool 3 Plus will be exclusively available on Amazon from July 2, and will not be available on any offline store. The registrations are already open, and we would definitely recommend you to register if you are planning to buy this phone.
