Late last year KOOLNEE introduced a new phone in the form of the KOOLNEE K1, one which was said to be designed based on a “democratic process.” More recently, however, the company has expanded the K1 line with a newer version now confirmed as the KOOLNEE K1 Trio. Speaking of which, the K1 Trio has now become available to pre-order.
The big selling point with the latest version is the display. As unlike the previous model the new K1 Trio looks to offer a greater amount of screen real estate thanks to the inclusion of a tri-bezel-less design - where the display stretches out to cover the top of the device as well as the sides. In fact, it is this tri-bezel-less aspect from where this new model draws its "Trio" name from. Display aside, there are also some other changes included as well and the most notable of which is the inclusion of a 4,200 mAh battery. Which represents a fairly substantial upgrade compared to the 3,190 mAh capacity battery that was included on the standard KOOLNEE K1. In addition, the company also states the new model will come with the latest MediaTek processor, although there was no further details provided on which MTK processor in particular. Other than that, buyers of this latest model can also expect a number of general optimizations and improvements, which among other things will offer greater energy-saving benefits.
As for the rest of the general specs and features, the K1 Trio includes a 6.01-inch display, up to 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage. As well as a dual camera setup (consisting of 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras), an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 7.0 (Nougat), and more. As noted, the KOOLNEE K1 Trio is now up for pre-order having gone live on JD.com’s JoyBuy shopping site and is currently listed with a $234.99 price tag attached. At present, KOOLNEE has yet to confirm exactly when shipping will commence, but the expectation is units will start to ship out this month. In the meantime, those interested in finding out more about the KOOLNEE K1 Trio can do so by heading over to the company’s official website, or of course, over to the JoyBuy pre-order listing.
