Coming to the optics, the Coolpad Cool Play 6 sports a dual camera setup at the rear with two 13MP sensors and aperture of f/2.0, dual-tone, dual-LED flash which allows users to capture videos in HD and in 4K. There is an 8MP front sensor with an aperture of f/2.2. The charging port is Type-C one, but does not support fast-charging. The phone also supports 4G VoLTE and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. All of this hardware is backed up by a massive 4,000mAh battery, which the company claims can deliver the performance of a 4500mAh one through optimal software optimisation.
The device was launched by the James Du, CEO, Coolpad Group and Syed Tajuddin, CEO, Coolpad India at the event in Dubai. The company claimed that it has an offline presence in eight states in the country with a reach through 3,000 multi-brand outlets.
As a part of Make-In-India initiative, the phone will be manufactured at Videocon’s Aurangabad plant. The company also claims it is planning to open exclusive service centres in at least five cities in the coming six months. With the introduction of the Coolpad Cool Play 6 at a mouth-watering price, some of the popular phones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 may face stiff competition. It would, however, be clearer in the coming months with the sales figures of these phones as well as other in the affordable yet powerful segment smartphones.
