Back in May this year, Chinese smartphone brand Coolpad launched the Coolpad Note 6 in India with dual front cameras and 4070 mAh battery. Well now, after more than five months, Coolpad has launched a new smartphone in India – called Coolpad Note 8.
The Coolpad Note 8 is a budget smartphone. It is powered by MediaTek’s MT6750 octa-core processor that’s clocked at 1.5 GHz and is paired with 4 GB RAM. The smartphone flaunts a 5.99-inch display that has aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels.
The Coolpad Note 8 boasts “high-grade metal body” and comes with dual cameras at the back for photography. The dual camera setup at the back on the Note 8 is a combination of one 16 MP and one 0.3 MP camera. For selfies and video calls, there’s an 8 MP camera on the front.
The Coolpad Note 8 runs Android 8.0 Oreo and comes with 64 GB of storage on-board. However, users do have the option to further expand the storage up to 128 GB via microSD card. For authentication and security, the Note 8 comes with a fingerprint scanner that’s located at the back just below the dual cameras. In addition to that, the Note 8 also comes with Face Unlock that lets you unlock the smartphone using your face.
Lastly, the Note 8 ships with a huge 4000 mAh battery that keeps the entire package up and running.
