Coolpad has launched a new smartphone in China called as Coolpad Cool Play 6. The Chinese company is touting the phone as exclusively designed for gamers, and it comes with a special ‘intelligent temperature control technology’ that keeps the device cool even while playing heavy games.
Coolpad has packed the device with decent hardware on board. The phone has a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Under-the-hood, the phone comes fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 chipset, clubbed with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The onboard storage is expandable via microSD card up to 128GB.
In terms of design, the phone comes with a metal body with a fingerprint sensor placed at the back within reach of your index finger. Also, the phone has a USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm headphone is present as well.
The Coolpad Cool Play 6 comes with two 13MP rear cameras. The company did not reveal the functionality of the cameras, but most likely the secondary sensor will capture monochrome shots. This implementation was earlier seen on the Coolpad Cool 1 Dual.
For selfies and video calls, Coolpad has added an 8MP sensor with no support for LED flash. Connectivity options in the device include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi (no dual-band), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and USB Type-C port.
The Cool Play 6 runs on Cool UI based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Coolpad has moved away from the LeEco’s EUI that powered the Coolpad Cool 1 Dual and Cool Changer S1. LeEco has a significant stake in Coolpad, and the firm is reportedly shutting down the business due to the cash crunch, which may be the reason for ditching the EUI.
However, there’s no official information from the company.
The device is armed with a 4060 mAH battery, which is rated to deliver 252 hours of standby time. The device also has fast charging technology.
Coolpad has priced the device at 1499 Yuan (approximately Rs. 14,100). Moreover, the company did not reveal the plans for launching the device in other markets such as the India.
