The phone packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage, while you’ll be able to find a non-removable 2,800mAh battery on the inside. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging is available here, and the device is fueled by the Snapdragon 617 64-bit octa-core SoC, Qualcomm’s mid-range chip. The 13-megapixel ISOCELL snapper (CMOS sensor, f/2.0 aperture, 6P lens, PDAF) can be found on the back of the Coolpad Max, while a 5-megapixel shooter (OV5648) is placed on the front side of this device. 4G LTE connectivity is also a part of this package, and the phablet offers two SIM card slots as well.
