Coolpad Cool M7 Launched: iPhone 7 Plus Looks, SD 625, 4GB RAM & More

by Jed John 17

Coolpad has launched a new smartphone in China with a design which looks very much like the iPhone 7 Plus. This isn’t the first smartphone we are seeing which looks like the Apple flagship, the OnePlus 5 did, as well as the Oppo R11 but the difference is that this model comes with a single rear camera designed just like the dual cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus.Coolpad Cool M7


As far as the specs go, the Coolpad Cool M7 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a 2.5D curved glass on top. The phablet is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 2.0GHz octa-core processor accompanied by a 4GB RAMwhile there is 64GB of storage onboard which unfortunately is not expandable. On the camera end, the mid-range model features a 12MP rear camera with autofocus and an f1.8 aperture and LED flash while at the front, there is a 13MP fixed focus front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and 79.8-degree wide angle lens. The sample photos for both the front and rear cameras don’t look bad for a mid-range phone. In addition, the smartphone offers 4G/LTE, Hybrid Dual SIM, Wifi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and a USB Type C and gets its juice from a 3,200mAh battery.  Despite the large battery, the device comes with a thickness of just 6.9 mm and weighs 152 grams. The Coolpad Cool M7 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat modified with Coolpad’s Journey UI  which brings a unique Dock bar to the phone and other cool features.Coolpad Cool M7


On the design aspect, the Cool M7 features an all-metal body with a round home button under the display which is just like that of Apple iPhones. The edges are well chamfered and would make for easy grip. At the rear, the camera and flash are located at the top left corner encased in a manner similar to the iPhone 7 Plus’ dual cameras. There is the cool logo at the rear as well and the absence of a fingerprint sensor at the rear means it is embedded with the home button up front.Coolpad Cool M7

  • Way too overpriced at ~$400 level.

    • Muhammad Yasir


      • I wouldn’t buy SD 625 when the price goes over $200 tbh.

        • Muhammad Yasir

          it’s a very badly hyped SoC and i am shocked to see Xiaomi being thralls to it !

          it’s hardly worth $160 !

    I find it hilarious that even the Chinese sites say “iPhone 7 looks”, when Huawei used this design in 2014 before the 7 even existed.

    • Jed

      Huawei could even have used it in 1990 but you and I know they try to adopt a similar design with iPhones to boost sales from the many Apple admirers who can’t afford the steeply priced iPhones. That’s just it, after all the design of the iPhone 7 isn’t something out of this world

    • AbdulB1

      which phone from 2014?

      • balcobomber25

        Honor 6 Plus. It was the first to use the rear design with the black camera window.

        • AbdulB1

          it looked more like an iphone4 clone

          • balcobomber25

            iPhone 4 didn’t have dual cameras.

          • AbdulB1

            But still Apple has been the center of attention of all Android makers

          • balcobomber25

            Yes and no. Android copies Apple and Apple copies Android. The latter just doesn’t get covered as much.

          • AbdulB1

            Apple is a retarded company after jobs. no new innovation or simplicity like Jobs tenure in their products. Just small gimmicks .

          • balcobomber25

            That may be true but they still sell and have one of the most loyal customers in any industry.

  • Simion-Florin

    Its a nice looking phone, but that 400$ price is horrendous!

  • Namita Behera

    It’s the low quality phone….. After 6 month it will not work..
    It’s a bloody Chinese product… Don’t purchase
