Back in May this year, Chinese smartphone brand Coolpad launched the Coolpad Note 6 in India, and then in October, the company launched the Coolpad Note 8. Well now, the company has launched one more smartphone – the Coolpad M3 – but not in India.
The Coolpad M3 is a budget smartphone that’s powered by MediaTek’s MT6750 octa-core processor which is clocked at 1.5 GHz and is coupled with 4 GB RAM. The smartphone runs Android 8.1 Oreo and comes with 32 GB of storage on-board. But, fret not, as it also has a microSD card slot that allows storage expansion.
The Coolpad M3 sports a 5.85-inch display with a big notch up top. Frankly speaking, the notch on this smartphone actually reminds us of the Google Pixel 3 XL. While the notch is quite big, the bezels are small.
The photography department on the Coolpad M3 is handled by dual cameras – 13 MP and 5 MP – at the back, along with a 5 MP camera on the front. The 5 MP secondary camera at the back is used for depth sensing. The smartphone has a glossy finish, and it also has a fingerprint scanner at the back for additional security. Coolpad says this fingerprint scanner unlocks the smartphone in 0.2 seconds.
The Coolpad M3 is offered in two colors – Blue Sea and Gentleman’s Enamel – and, it ships with a rather small 2800 mAh battery tasked with keeping the entire package up and running.
