Coolpad has introduced their Note 3 handset in India a couple of months ago, and the company has just introduced yet another member of the ‘Note’ family, the Note 3 Lite. Now, as its name says, the Note 3 Lite is a less powerful variant of the Note 3, and it’s also quite a bit smaller. Now, this doesn’t mean that it’s a bad device though, its specs are actually not all that, especially considering the price, read on.

The Coolpad Note 3 Lite sports a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) IPS display along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card). This handset is fueled by MediaTek’s MT6735 64-bit quad-core processor along with a Mali-T720 GPu for graphics. The 13-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of the Note 3 Lite, and a 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front. The 2,500mAh battery is also a part of this package, and so is the fingerprint scanner which is located on the back of this smartphone. This is a dual-SIM device, and it also offer 4G LTE connectivity. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with Coolpad’s Cool UI 6.0 available on top of it. The phone measures 140.8 x 70.4 x 8.9mm, while it weighs 152 grams.
