Coolpad after a long hiatus is once again back in the business as it launched today the Coolpad Cool 3 Plus in the Indian market. The new smartphone is the successor to the Coolpad Cool 3 that saw the light in February this year.
The new Cool 3 Plus is an upgraded version of its predecessor but it now comes with a single AI camera unit on the back as against a dual-rear-camera setup found in the Cool 3. However, the rear camera in the Cool 3 Plus is equipped with better resolution than the Cool 3.
Apart from the new Cool 3 Plus the Chinese brand has also introduced a new 4GB RAM variant of the Cool 3, priced at INR7,999. The Coolpad Cool 3 Plus, on the other hand, is launched with a starting price of INR5,999.
The Cool 3 Plus comes with a gradient finish polycarbonate body and a dew-drop notch. The rear of the device is laced with a circular fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication. However, the selfie camera also has the face unlock feature for the same purpose.
Dwelling on the specifications of the Cool 3 Plus, the smartphone sports the same 5.71-inch 1520x720p HD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio as the Cool 3. The smartphone is powered by a 12nm MediaTek Helio A22 quad-core SoC clocked at 2.0GHz versus a 1.3GHz octa-core processor in the Cool 3. The Cool 3 Plus comes in 2GB RAM and 3GB RAM variants with 16GB and 32GB internal storage respectively. The phone also supports storage expansion via microSD card.
