Technically, LeEco owns Coolpad now since they are the majority shareholder in the company, so this can be said to be a LeEco launch of some sort. The unlocked smartphone market in the US is important to manufacturers who are able to grab a share of it. Coolpad has seen the money to be made in that category and has come up with the Coolpad Conjr (pronounced as conjure).
The Conjr has a beautiful aluminium body with a 5-inch 720p display, 3GB of RAM, 16G of storage that can be expanded via a MicrosSD slot, and a 13MP rear camera. There is an 8MP selfie camera with LED flash as well, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that can scan wet and dusty fingers, and a rather disappointing MT6735 quad-core processor. The Conjr has LTE band support for AT&T and T-Mobile, dual-SIM slots, a 2500mAh battery, and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Coolpad’s Cool UI 8.0 out of the box.
The Coolpad Conjr is priced at $179.99 and comes bundled with a pair of Beyerdynamic earphones. Already available for pre-order on Newegg, it is also already on Amazon with a January 19 release date.
