Coolpad is not exactly the most popular China-based smartphone OEM, but you have certainly heard of this company in the past. We haven’t exactly seen many devices launched by Coolpad lately, but they did just announce a new one in China. Now, the company has announced the Coolpad Max, their all-new metal-clad phablet. That being said, let’s see what this phablet has to offer, shall we.
The back of this device definitely reminded us of the HTC One A9’s design, the camera shooter is placed right in the middle of the upper back portion of this handset, and even the general design of the back resembles the one seen in the One A9 due to the antenna lines. The phone does looks quite sleek though, the metal build definitely helps in the looks department, and the phone’s specs aren’t all that bad at all. The Coolpad Max features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) 2.5D curved display along with 3GB of RAM and 16 / 32GB of internal storage (expandable via a microSD card). This handset is fueled by the Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 2,800mAh battery can be found on the inside. The 13-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of the Coolpad Max, and a 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed here, and on top of it you’ll find company’s custom UI, part of which is pictured in the image down below. The device is only 6.9mm thick, and it weighs 175 grams.
This is one sleek looking handset, and it also offer a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, as you can see in the provided images. The device is actually already available for purchase from the company’s official website in China, and if you live in China and are interested, follow the source link down below. Now, it is worth mentioning that this phone costs 2,499 ($380), which doesn’t exactly make it the cheapest phone out there, especially if you consider that this is technically not a high-end device. The Coolpad Max sports a mid-range SoC, though the rest of its specs can be considered high-end, to an extent. Either way, we’re sure that certain consumers will be interested in purchasing this handset, so, if you’re interested, you know what to do.
