Coolpad has launched another variant of its Note 3 smartphone in India, the Coolpad Note 3 Plus. Priced at Rs. 8,999, the smartphone bears a full-HD (1080×1920 pixel) display instead of the HD (720×1280 pixel) display of its predecessor.
The Coolpad Note 3 Plus will go up for sale via Amazon India on May 13 in White and Gold colour variants. To recall, the Coolpad Note 3 was launched in October last year at the same price – Rs. 8,999 – but earlier this month received a minor price cut to Rs. 8,499, evidently in anticipation of the launch of the Coolpad Note 3 Plus variant. It launched the basic variant of the smartphone, the Coolpad Note 3 Lite, in January.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Coolpad Note 3 Plus bears a 5.5-inch full-HD IPS display, and is powered by 1.3GHz octa-core MediaTek 6753 SoC, coupled with 3GB of RAM. The dual-SIM smartphone (Micro-SIM + Micro-SIM) bears a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel camera in front. It also sports a fingerprint sensor.
The Note 3 Plus comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 64GB). It runs on a 3000mAh battery, measures 151x77x9.3mm, and weighs slightly more than the Coolpad Note 3 at 168 grams.
Connectivity options on the Coolpad Note 3 Plus include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, FM radio, 3G, 4G (with support for Indian LTE band). Sensors on board include proximity, ambient light, accelerometer, and gyroscope.
