Coolpad Cool1 with 4060mAh Battery Launched in India at Rs 13999

Under the hood is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz and paired with Adreno 510 GPU. The Cool 1 Dual doesn't feel cheap by any means, but with most smartphones in this range looking similar, it doesn't feel that different either. Landscape shooting is just as good, but can not be compared with high-end dual camera smartphones like the Huawei P9. On the back of the smartphone, there is a fingerprint scanner as well. The device was officially launched in India on Wednesday for Rs 13,999, keeping in mind the budget-conscious buyers in India. Accompanying the camera is a dual-tone LED flash, and it is also capable of shooting videos at 4K resolution.

- The Cool 1, interestingly, is also quite well endowed in terms of other hardware parts. It comes with two 13MP sensors with an aperture of f/2.0 and a dual-tone LED flash. One sensor captures the RGB colours while the other one is for capturing monochrome images. The twin cameras at the rear can capture 13-megapixel stills and support Phase Detection Autofocus. The bokeh effect also works well when lighting conditions are optimal, though there were times when the camera struggled to focus properly on a subject and blur out the background.

Going to the specification, we have a dual nano sim support running on android 6.0 marshmallow which is based on EUI 5.6, a 5.5-inch full-HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS in-cell display with 450-nit brightness and 72 percent NTSC colour gamut.

The Cool 1 Dual is the result of an unlikely collaboration between LeEco and Coolpad and is available in two variants - one with 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage and a higher end variant with 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage.

RUMOURS: Allardyce wants Defoe at Crystal Palace
That game sees Sam Allardyce take charge of the visitors for the first time since he was appointed Palace manager on Friday. We've seen managers behaving poorly, players getting sent off, brawls and even fans taking things to an extreme.

Currently, the Cool 1 Dual is the cheapest smartphone in the market with a dual camera setup.

Given this spec-sheet, we are hopeful to get a powerful performance. There is however no option to expand the memory using a microSD card. The company has also gone ahead with a USB Type-C port for connectivity and data. Backing all these features, comes a 4,000 mAh battery.

For availability, it bolsters 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS, A/GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 3.5mm sound jack and USB Type C.
