KOOLNEE had teased its upcoming smartphone a number of times thus far, and those of you who are looking for an affordable flagship phablet, with solid specs and a nice-looking body, well, you may be interested in this handset. The KOOLNEE K1 Trio resembles the OUKITEL Mix 2 in a number of ways, both phones sport a ‘chin’ below the display, where a front-facing fingerprint scanner / home key is located, the phone has very thin bezels, just like the OUKITEL Mix 2. Just like the OUKITEL Mix 2, this smartphone also comes with a slightly thicker top bezel (compared to side bezels), and if you flip the phone around, you will spot a dual camera setup. Those two cameras, and a dual-LED, dual-tone flash which is placed below them, protrude on the back a bit. The back side of this phone is curved, while the company’s branding is placed there as well. A power / lock button is located on the right-hand side of the KOOLNEE K1, while the volume up and down buttons can be found on the left.
Now, as far as specs are concerned, this smartphone sports a 6.01-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display, while it also comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable internal storage. A 4,200mAh non-removable battery is also a part of this package, while 16 and 2-megapixel snappers sit on the back of this smartphone. An 8-megapixel shooter is placed on the front side of this phone, while the device also comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.1. The KOOLNEE K1 comes with two SIM card slots (2x nano SIM), while Android 7.1 Nougat comes pre-installed on the phone. MediaTek’s Helio P23 64-bit octa-core processor fuels the device, and if you’re interested in pre-ordering the KOOLNEE K1 Trio, follow the link down below.
